VR application: how we will use the SimpleThimble in virtual reality

In this section we will see how to use the SimpleThimble in a emblematic virtual reality (VR) application: grasping a virtual cube. To do this we will use Unity, one of the most popular IDEs for desinging both 2D and 3D applications, such as games but also VR scenarios.

In order to track movements of our hand we will use the Leap Motion. The Leap Motion controller is a hand-tracking device that uses a combination of cameras and infrared sensors to track the movement of hands and fingers with high accuracy and low latency.


In the next page we will set up all softwares necessary to use our new device in the VR!
