■The latest version of “VR hands-on training”, which enables you to learn by superimposing their hands on the techniques of expert physicians through hand tracking
With VR hands-on training, it is possible to learn by superimposing VR players’ hands over real live-action 360-degree videos of procedures performed by expert physicians, in conjunction with hand tracking sensors. The system senses players’ lines of sight, their hand placements, and angles, and evaluates their proficiency in medical procedures, thereby sustaining and increasing their motivation to continue with VR training.
