Essential Reality has introduced its new P5 glove-like peripheral designed for gaming and 3D interaction at the Expo.
Currently in beta form and expected to ship for OS X this fall, the USB-based P5 glove provides "the computer gamer with an ergonomically designed glove-like device, which controls the fast action in 3D game software through diverse hand gestures. Pull your trigger finger in 3D space and the on-screen gun shoots in real time. Flick your fingers away and a game character is thrown against the wall. Lift your palm and an animated helicopter slowly rises into the air."
