Essential Reality Demos P5 Glove for 3D Image Manipulation

Glove-Like Device Supports OS X, Allows Full-Motion Control of 3D Graphics Using Discrete Hand Movements (July 19, 2001)
Essential Reality is demonstrating its P5 glove-like peripheral at Macworld in New York. Currently in beta form, P5 will be available for Mac OS X this fall.

P5, compatible with Mac OS X, provides the computer gamer with an ergonomically designed glove-like device, which controls the fast action in 3D game software through diverse hand gestures. Pull your trigger finger in 3D space and the on-screen gun shoots in real time. Flick your fingers away and a game character is thrown against the wall. Lift your palm and an animated helicopter slowly rises into the air.

P5 uses the latest in Essential Reality's proprietary bend sensor and tracking technologies to enable full interaction with a 3D environment. Fully USB compliant, P5 will be compatible with Macs, PCs and next-generation gaming systems, including PS2 and Xbox. A full color image of P5 can be viewed at
