Based on Award-Winning Bebop Sensors Forte Wireless Data Glove -- Winner of Time Magazine Award

Based on the award-winning BeBop Sensors Forte Wireless Data Glove, the first fully featured affordable wireless data glove to incorporate haptics and super accurate rapid sensing, the new BeBop Sensors Forte Data Glove Enterprise Edition is now faster, with an under 6 millisecond response time and all-day battery life. The enterprise glove now also features a more comfortable design to fit most everyone, and incorporates more powerful haptics for truly intuitive hand interactions that “feel” different textures, with a realistic experience when touching a table or robot versus a piece of velvet, or a person’s face – resulting in far more accurate and immersive experience.
