BeBop Sensors www.bebopsensors.com, the leader in smart fabric sensor technology with over four million state-of-the-art wearable smart fabric sensors shipped, announced today that it has integrated the exclusively designed BeBop Sensors Forte Data Glove affordable all-day wireless VR/AR product with the Oculus Quest for the world’s first all-in-one VR enterprise training and design system.

BeBop Sensors Forte Data Glove with Oculus Quest Controller

The BeBop Sensors Forte Data Glove combined with Oculus Quest provides a complete VR headset/data glove solution that fits in a small bag for easy shipping with almost no set-up for on-the-go VR enterprise training and maintenance anywhere/anytime.

The Forte Data Gloves with Oculus Quest are ushering in the next generation of VR by allowing people to do real practical things in the virtual world with natural hand interactions-- just as they do in the real world. The gloves provide the missing dimension of touch feedback to training and make users feel like the virtual world is tangible, aiding in more realistic and safer training for business.

To combine the BeBop and Oculus VR technologies, BeBop Sensors integrated its hand tracking technology with the Oculus controllers’ 3D tracking; and customized BeBop Sensors’ full SDK and haptic feedback system to the Oculus Quest environment. Featuring easy set-up, the lightweight, one-size-fits-all Forte Data Glove has an adapter that quickly straps the small Oculus controller onto the gloves so users can “feel” their hands and surrounding environment for true hands-on VR training.
