Maarten Witteveen: Input & Interactions in VR, AI, Startup, Consciousness | Bend Reality Podcast #1

Welcome to the latest Knox VR News, where we take deep dives in the worlds of spatial computing, VR, & all the surrounding realities. 

A Holiday special: we present the first episode of our Bend Reality Podcast, hosted by our Founder & Chief Scientist, Taron Khachatryan - where we talk with founders that bend the reality towards creating new products in the XR space.

Our first guest, whom we had the pleasure of hosting, is Maarten Witteveen, the Co-Founder and President of North America at Manus.

Manus has been building the world's leading data gloves for use in real-time VR and motion capture for years now. They have recently released the Quantum Metagloves, which moves to a new magnetic tracking approach which offers unparalleled accurate finger tracking, especially when it comes to fingertip interactions either for picking up small objects in VR or with physical objects such as props or mixed reality tools.
