Optical based systems like Leap Motion work very different from the Manus VR Gloves. Leap Motion indirectly analyzes images from a camera, our gloves measure the full pose of the hand directly on the hand itself. This makes it far less prone to error. The Manus VR Gloves do not suffer occlusion of field of view limitations. Even minor inconsitencies in what one's hands are doing are extremely detrimental to immersion in the VR experience. Physical sensors are the only way to ensure reliable tracking of finger movement. In addition to this, an optical based system will never be able to supply haptic feedback to the degree a glove can.
