Force Push: A Way to Move Objects in VR like a Jedi

- Advertisement -

Force Push is an object manipulation system for Virtual Reality that aims to enable the user with the ability to interact with objects through gesture based controls. The inspiration for the tech is pretty obvious and it’s ability that a lot of people, myself include, like to fantasize about from time to time.

This system is currently being worked upon by Run Yu, a Ph.D. candidate, and Professor Doug A. Brown, both from Virginia Tech. With the help of a Leap Motion Sensor outfitted to the front of an Oculus Rift, the system is able to dynamically match hand gestures to the properties of physics simulations in order to move the objects. The intricacies of the tech can be read about in more detail in the researchers’ recently published report.

Below is some footage of Force Push in action:

As you can see in the above video, it seems like a really cool system that could one day possibly find itself as a staple control scheme for VR and as such gives hope for the creation of the most realistic Star Wars game ever.
