Evolution In The Virtual Reality Space: AjnaLens Launches ‘Haptic Gloves’ In India

* AjnaLens, a Mumbai-based AR/VR Startup becomes the first to launch the Haptic Gloves ‘AjnaSparsh’ for Training & Upskilling 

AjnaLens, a Mumbai based hardware and software company has become the first Indian company to launch ‘Made in India’ Haptic Gloves, named as ‘AjnaSparsh’. The one-of-its-kind gloves allows the user to intuitively interact with virtual objects in the Metaverse. The gloves are offered as a training tool along with the AjnaXR Station 2.0. Corporate giants like Vedanta are readily adopting this technology to train and upskill their workforce for better results. 

“Every complex skill has its own set of tools that simplifies the learning process. Similar is the case with VR training. Attaching sensors on industry-graded tools do offer a sense of realism in the virtual world, but it still limits the scalability of the system. This inspired us to create AjnaSparsh, a unique pair of haptic gloves that allows users to touch, hold and feel the virtual objects in the Metaverse as they would in the real world. The right amount of pressure is induced on parts of the hand that are touching the virtual object, simulating the feeling of real touch. This leads to better hand, eye and brain coordination and sharpens cognitive skills to perform better.” said Abhishek Tomar, Co-founder & CTO, AjnaLens.

“Designed with utmost precision, AjnaSparsh is comfortable and lightweight to wear for an extended period. The sensors embedded allow force feedback and highly accurate motion tracking. Be it pressing a button, gripping a tool or throwing a ball, the gloves can replicate exact sensations in the virtual world. We are continuously working to upgrade the gloves and add new features like interactions with holographic avatars” he added.

AjnaLens has started pairing their haptic gloves with VR training modules like Mining to impart close to realistic training. Unlike controllers, haptic gloves take the VR experience to new heights, providing highly immersive and intuitive interactions. This strengthens a trainee’s muscle memory, and improves skill proficiency.

The company aims to deploy the AjnaSparsh and train 50,000+ students by the end of the year.
