We see amazing innovations in both areas and would love to collaborate. From our point of view, being a group of casual gamers, gloves do not provide the one-size-fits-all flexibility of etee. They are not comfortable, easy-to-wear and can cause hygiene issues, particularly for elongated periods of use or multiple users.
Other control technologies such as camera tracking do not offer 360° of freedom. The user generally has to look at their hands for them to be tracked. Most in-air tracking technologies also fail to communicate the user’s useable gestures and triggers making them hard to learn. Based on our user research, having something in hand offers reassurance, tactile feedback and an important sense of control. And we believe etee is that perfectly-crafted in-hand object.
