In only a few months since its first public unveiling, the ground-breaking CaptoGlove has impressed leading VR experts; wowed gadget-lovers and gamers at CES and GDC; was 163% funded on Kickstarter and secured another successful round of private investment.  Now the world’s first wireless wearable controller for video games, virtual reality, smart devices and more has entered production and is expected to begin hitting retail outlets such as Amazon and Gadget Flow later this month.

Starting today and running through May 21, CaptoGlove is celebrating this milestone by offering consumers a final opportunity to buy the glove for a discount of $40 off of one glove from CaptoGlove.com.

 

The first CaptoGlove prototype was created more than five years ago as an innovative way to help regain coordination and mobility after a stroke.  Its success in health rehabilitation was extraordinary and its incredible precision allowed the glove to be applied to military pilot training.  Again delivering unparalleled results with the neurocognitive aspect of flight simulation, CaptoGlove was then enhanced to become a next-generation controller for video games, virtual reality headsets, mobile devices, drones, healthcare and professional training, smart home products, and almost any modern device that connects via Bluetooth.

See a wide variety of videos of CaptoGlove in action, including controlling video games, virtual reality, FlightSim, smart devices, as well as the story behind the glove’s creation on their official YouTube channel.
