In 2002, Essential Reality released the $150 P5 glove controller to the market. A so-called "3D virtual controller," it detects hand motions, finger movements, and gripping, translating them to mouse inputs! In theory.

  • As for how Black & White plays with the P5 glove, check out my retrospective here! plworld.info/show/oZWjndy1fIe_mLw/wideo.html And to those asking if my lights interfere with the receiver, the answer is "not that I can tell." It's just _that_ finicky to use. I had problems in the past when I used CFLs, but all of my lights are LEDs now and they don't interfere with the other infrared devices I have. Even my wonky 1980s PCjr infrared keyboards function perfectly under the same lighting used in this video! To be sure, I also tried the P5 without any of lights on at all, just the glow of the CRT, and results were unchanged. My experience is echoed by old user reviews I've read, too. It is quite simply... odd.

    • you arent supposed to move your arm so much, turning your wrist up lets you bring the cursor up

    • I found with my trackpad and many screens I have to increase the mouse track speed which is an os controlled setting. Always wanted to know about this product though, hilarious. Went as well as I thought it would when I first saw the ad for it.

    • I got the P5 for Christmas as a kid. I asked for it specifically because I had just gotten into Black and White and thought this was the perfect thing to bring that game to the next level. I even held-off on continuing to play the game in anticipation for the P5. It was the only thing I got that year... Yeah...

    • You keep it rotated 90 degrees CCW relative to how it's supposed to be. This blocks line of sight between some of led's and receiver.

  • this reminds me of the steam vr headset, it straps onto your hand so you can use specific finger grips. this could've been something better

  • Yeah, definitely... This device is exactly what all hardcore gamers, for something like counter strike for example, urgently need. An input device which makes it impossible to aim and simply doesnt work most of the time at all. Maybe these days we could built such a thing which good precision, with many functions you could use youre finger to. I would try it, although it is probaply not good enough for shooters and so, but many other games and even for simply surfing on the web and other programs it could be useful, fun and even maybe better. Does anyone know something like this or any other cool freaky input devices?

  • You know, these guys weren't terribly far off. Our most successful VR headsets today also use IR trackers for the headset and controllers that you sort of wear on your hands. Perhaps a case of an innovative idea that was just a little too ahead of the time for its own good. There's just no way a pc of the 90s would be able to manage proper, accurate tracking the way it's done today. And of course, the typical 90s oddware design... Yeah

  • If you're losing tracking alot, make sure your curtains are closed if youre in a room with exterior windows, and cover up any mirrors in the room. I have an htc vive which uses IR tracking as well. If you have VR light houses running in the same room they will mess with other IR devices as well obviously.

  • Fun story: While I was in college, one of my professors wanted some students to participate in a study on alternate input methods. I volunteered and for half an hour every day for a couple of weeks, I blasted my way through the Beach Head demo with the P5 while he had a tracing software running in the background recording statistics on my hand motions. It certainly didn't feel revolutionary, but I must admit it became easier over the duration of the experiment. I never saw one in the wild after that.

  • "Tiger Hunt" works while "Beach Head 2002" didn't. Congratulations, you got the better game as you can move around. Beach Head 2002 is just standing on a plain green field (despite the title being "Beach Head") and you have the entire Russian (i think?) army onto you in 360 degrees. But well, Beach Head 2000 was already a thing and difference is, it's set on an actual beach head, it's like the D-Day but you're in control of the bunker and the beach landing has tanks and helicopters too.

  • What i've noticed about things like this, the power glove, the connect, playstation move, eyetoy etc. is that the "close enough is good enough" approach from developers. That the one thing all reviews of these items have in common is the reviewer stating "it kind of works", but when your coming up against traditional ways of controlling your interface, you'd better make damn sure yours at least works just as well.
