Oculus-buys-gesture-recognition-VR-company-Pebbles-InterfacesThe VR market has been going through a lot of mix and match of companies being bought and sold. The latest is the news that Facebook’s Oculus buys gesture recognition VR company Pebbles Interfaces.

The Israeli based gesture recognition VR company, Pebbles Interfaces, specializes in technology that detects hand movements and gestures via custom optics, sensor systems and algorithms. This means that you do not need an external device to detect your hand movements, and hence enables device free movement just by your VR headset which you are wearing. This will definitely revolutionize virtual reality, as it will give more immersive and improved human-computer interaction.

Also, in last December, Oculus acquired a ccompany named Nimble VR, that transfer your real-life skeletal movement into virtual reality which shows your hand movements in VR. In May, Oculus acquired another company named Surreal Vision, that transforms your physical spaces around you into VR worlds which means your entire room can be integrated into the VR vision. Isn’t all this just too cool to comprehend? Well, we should have all this much sooner than you think. Let us know how excited you are about the VR world.
