The Mace VL opinion - Why does it matter?
For many enterprise training applications, especially those that require complex motion and interaction with hands and the VR/AR environment, the presence of touch is critical for a realistic learning experience.
With the Forte, Bebop provides the most refined experience of touch available today for AR/VR, and an actionable developer platform to integrate and improve the experience.
