The glove is completely wireless and along with Flexpoint’s sensors includes other technology partners. The product provides plugins for many of the major platforms. The Manus VR Gloves brings solutions for training simulations, robotics, health/medical purposes and motion capture VR arcades. The B2B market has seen the value and has proven to be more rapid than expected.
Established in 2016, Manus VR successfully brought to market a feature-rich glove offering. The glove integrates a number of technologies into a unique and truly inspired design. Manus has further realized their vision in supplying the industry’s finest components that integrate with various VR hardware platforms offered by such notable companies as HTC, Vicon, Xsan and others. Some of their more recent, visionary customers include ESI Group and WorldViz.
“Flexpoint is proud to be fully integrated into the virtual reality product from a prestigious firm like Manus." Sexauer further commented, “We continue to cherish and support what has become a long-term business partnership that is mutually beneficial. This relationship grows stronger as we continue to enhance and improve the technology. This validates and reinforces our unique position in the rapidly evolving VR market.”
VR/AR will be an $80 billion market by 2025 according to Goldman Sachs. By comparison the TV market is $99 billion, the tablet PC market is $63 billion and the video game industry is $11 billion.
In addition to the gloves, Manus VR has developed a software development platform (SDK’s) that enable customers like those named above, to design and build applications that extend far beyond virtual reality. This opens up a strong portion of the market that includes manufacturing, retail, healthcare, engineering, military and real estate applications.
The Manus VR glove will revolutionize the VR market. It is set to play a huge role in the virtual reality revolution. Manus VR believes in open innovation through sharing knowledge and experience. The possibilities of the Manus gloves are virtually endless and extend far beyond virtual reality.
In October 2014, Manus VR was selected from 10,000 candidates who took part in the Dutch Startup Bootcamp HighTechXL, together with eleven other participants. The program helped Manus VR accelerate and build the business in just three months. After the program’s Demo Day in February 2015, the company signed up leading development partners and clients. Furthermore, it was fully funded at record speed, enabling the company to further develop the product.
Since developing the first working prototype in 2014, Manus has been a fast-growing company. It has grown around 300% and developed a functioning product in combination with a strong development platform.
