    Are there any good vr gloves or sleeves coming out or that are already out? I know that Stress level zero was working on vr gloves a long time ago but I'm pretty sure they've stopped. I imagine a vr sleeve or somrthing you could put on your arm would make a good accessory for the htc vive.

    There's nothing that works with much expected to come out until next year. I agree that a physical accessory would be helpful!

    Both the HTC Vive which comes with it, and the Oculus Rift (coming soon) via an add on have a hand controller (or controllers) that sorta act like a glove and let you get your hands in to the action. In the case of the Vive it makes it 200 dollars more than the Rift, and of course the Rift controller costs, yes you guessed it about 200! lol

    Yeah I knew about the controllers, but if you could move all of your fingers independently in a glove thst would be extra immersion and just very cool.

    Have I got good news for you!

    I haven't had the opportunity to try this or spend much time researching, but the Leap Motion can track your hands in VR with no gloves or anything required, other than the small sensor affixed to the front of your headset.

    Here's a video of it in action:
