Meta’s Quest Pro gets an upgrade with hand tracking and direct touch in v50

Meta, the parent company of Oculus, has released a new software update for its Quest Pro virtual reality headset, version 50, which brings significant improvements to the device’s hand tracking and direct touch capabilities. With these enhancements, users will be able to interact with virtual objects and environments in a more natural and intuitive way.

Hand tracking, which was first introduced in the Quest 2, has been improved in the Quest Pro with better accuracy and responsiveness, allowing users to more precisely manipulate objects with their hands. The new update also includes the ability to use direct touch to manipulate objects. With direct touch, users can interact with virtual objects as if they were using their actual hands, making for a more immersive experience.

The Quest Pro’s hand tracking and direct touch capabilities are made possible by the headset’s array of sensors, which use infrared light to track the movements of the user’s hands. The new software update also includes improvements to the headset’s performance and stability, as well as a number of bug fixes.

The Quest Pro has been well-received since its release, with many praising its comfortable design, high-quality display, and impressive performance. With the addition of hand tracking and direct touch, the device has become even more appealing to virtual reality enthusiasts who want a more immersive experience. As Meta continues to invest in virtual reality technology, it is likely that we will see even more exciting developments in the future.
