When you dive into the wonders of the VR worlds, don’t you just want to go ahead and grab everything around you? The HEAVE Grip is a tactile glove developed for an enhanced virtual reality experience in conjunction with VR headsets.

The patented HEAVE Grip – developed by Philip Zeitler – uses multiple technologies to restrict the user’s finger movements, creating the illusion of holding an object.

A range of tools and utilities were used to develop the first functional prototypes. Using a washable lycra glove as basis, mechanisms are attached to holders that are integrated into leather covers, allowing free movement of the fingers and a comfortable, lightweight wear preventing sweaty fingers.
