It’s like a revolution: the unique X-Rings controller is introduced, which changes shape

Published

Many researchers are working on innovations for virtual reality, which has been around for quite some time, but has not yet become widespread. Now, the new X-Rings virtual reality controller has been unveiled and will be showcased at the UIST 2021 ACM Symposium on Software and User Interface Technologies.

X-Rings is described as a gadget that is fixed in the palm of your hand and allows you to change shape. This allows the user to feel virtual objects of various shapes in their hand. At the same time, he is able to determine different pressing force. If, for example, a fragile (virtual) glass is in the user’s hand, then it is quite possible to break it by tightly squeezing the fingers.

Motors are installed inside the X-Rings, which can very quickly change the diameter of the four outer rings from 5.7 to 7.7 cm.The object is fixed in the palm of the hand with a strap, that is, if the user does not want to pick up anything in virtual space, his hands can be relaxed.

In the following video, the developers very clearly demonstrated the prototype in action. Such controllers allow you to more realistically interact with various objects within the virtual environment and provide a greater degree of immersion.

The week began for the main cryptocurrencies of the world with a rise in price and the establishment of new price highs, and ends with a fall, and quite noticeable. Over the course of a day, Bitcoin loses about 4.5% of its value, and as a result, for 1 BTC now they give not $ 66,000, but about $ 60,500.

After Bitcoin began to fall, Ethereum was still holding, but its rate had already gone down too, dropping below the psychological mark of $ 4,000. Analysts believe that such a fall in cryptocurrencies is due to their sell-off on the part of investors – they are fixing profits against the backdrop of a strong growth in value that has been observed since the end of September. This means that after the current correction, Bitcoin may rush to new heights, but whether altcoins will follow it is a big question.
