The present and future of virtual reality news and technology

3. University of Washington researchers have developed a low-power five degree of freedom (DoF) gesture ring and wristband. AuraRing is an electromagnetic tracking system that promises a combination of high-resolution tracking and low power consumption which could benefit XR experiences and wearable technologies across the board. The two-piece system consists of an index finger-sized ring containing a coil of wire wrapped 800 times around a 3D printed loop and a wristband that uses three sensor coils to determine the ring’s 5DoF orientation to a resolution is 0.1mm, with dynamic accuracy of 4.4mm. This is a much higher degree of precision than would be gathered through external camera monitoring of the same finger, and better enables applications such as air writing and freeform drawing without the need for a touch surface. The research was funded by the University of Washington’s Reality Lab, as well as Facebook, Futurewei, and Google. – VENTUREBEAT
