Half-Life: Alyx is a superb VR recreation, wherein gravity gloves help you use objects within the setting to combat headcrabs and Mix in myriad methods. Now if solely you may caress these creatures, then maybe you may try to make associates with them… Now that will be attention-grabbing.
Hand Physics Lab is a recreation just lately launched on Oculus Quest which has no monsters to caress, however it does have a cat to pet and several other mini-games and different toys to tinker with. It appears to have hand physics and finger manipulation which can be already extra spectacular than Half-Life’s, however a current video of a future replace suggests it’ll be even higher quickly. And totally obscene.
Here is the video, which accommodates nothing however a physically-simulated skeletan hand rubbing and holding inanimate objects akin to a cup, a crowbar, and a vibrant egg. And but…
Meet the Good Arms! 🙌
I am engaged on the following iteration of my interplay system for @HandPhysicsLab utilizing the mix of predefined hand poses, dynamic IK-based posing and absolutely physics-based fingers. First prototype is trying promising! 😃#hantracking #oculus pic.twitter.com/2TXisStwSC

Different commenters underneath the tweet observed it, too. Additionally it turns on the market’s a Twitter bot that may robotically add Careless Whisper to movies for you.
Dennys Kuhnert, the creator of the tweet, is the developer of Hand Physics Lab and likewise of early entry stickman playground Holoception. His Twitter account is full of different good hand movies – plus this horrible crowbar-in-forearm-bone one which made me bodily recoil.
Sadly the Hand Physics Lab is barely accessible for Oculus Quest (which I haven’t got), however I do stay up for these sorts of arms coming to different video games. I need to stroke a headcrab.
