Flexibility, Easy Integration Mocap Gloves
The Prime II is the core of our next generation mocap gloves. An all-round wireless data glove that tracks individual fingers on two joints–it now supports full 11DOF on every finger. Quickly stream data directly into any desired software with the use of popular industry plugins. Prime II offers flexibility between projects, use either as a stand-alone data glove for robotics, harness its Motion Capture capabilities to deliver high fidelity finger capture during animation projects, or easy-to-integrate VR glove ideal for simulation and virtual training.
Prime II for Virtual Reality
Merging real world interactions with virtual world experiences is now augmented thanks to Manus’s quality Prime II Series gloves. With the broad hardware and software implementation possibilities, the Prime II gloves are the go-to product for any VR application. Accurate finger tracking and interaction framework allows handling small virtual objects naturally and with ease. Introduce haptics to heighten the senses for a truly believable experience in VR. Team collaborations for professionals prototyping high render models before it hits the manufacturing floor saves significant time and production cost. Virtual reality training and simulation is essential before entering high risk scenarios. Bring realistic hand and finger motions to 3D animated characters in VR experiences. Whatever your need, Manus has a glove that fits.
Prime II for Motion Capture
The Prime II gloves are an easy set-up, portable MoCap solution to produce high fidelity finger tracking from anywhere. The new generation wireless Manus gloves support simultaneous multi-user calibration during one set-up, with a short 45 second calibration process to get mocap sessions under way quickly. The built in Sensor Fusion allows users to measure each individual finger with a 11DOF ensuring fine motor control. Extend recording sessions with the powerful interchangeable battery.
Precise Finger tracking
Merging robustness with precision, all Prime II series gloves incorporate industrial grade flex sensors fused with high performance inertial measurement units, raising the bar in high fidelity finger tracking. The flex sensors measure 2 joints per finger, enhanced with 11DOF tracking of individual fingers by the IMU’s to ensure fine finger movements. IMU drift is prevented with newly implemented automatic filters, enhanced with reference points of the robust flex sensors. This enables detailed finger spreading measurement without losing continuous quality during a live performance capture.
All next generation Manus Gloves come equipped with interchangeable batteries, with massive upgraded battery life powering 5 hours of continuous uninterrupted motion capture time. Choose to charge the battery during use, or charge individually. Gloves instantly reconnect after swapping the battery, eliminating recalibration down time.
Universal Mounting System
One of the key features of the Prime II series is the easy implementation of third party hardware. For that reason the Prime II gloves come with a universal mounting system as standard, allowing the mounting of any type of tracker with dedicated adapters. These adapters slot in with ease on top of the Prime II series gloves.
Calibrate in 45 seconds
A 45 second turnaround is all it takes to get moving. With three simple gestures the Manus Prime II gloves take a quick and accurate calibration tailored to the users hands. Capturing larger groups is equally streamlined, Prime II supports simultaneous multi-user calibration resulting in smoother team sessions and maximized time, making the Prime II gloves an easy, time efficient choice.
With many hours of use, it’s essential to keep gloves in top shape and ready to go for your next session. We’ve made Prime II gloves washable by easy removal of sensors from the glove textile. Additional glove textiles can be acquired separately so all team members have their own personal set, simply swap the sensors from one textile to another to use the same hardware ensuring responsible hygienic use.
Easy integration of the Manus Gloves is one of our top priorities. By using our plugins, seamless integration into Unity and MotionBuilder is made possible. The Unreal Engine plugin will be coming soon.
The Manus Prime II glove can be used with the Oculus Rift S, Oculus Quest Link, and any SteamVR compatible headset.
