What is Hand Tracking in VR?

Hand tracking allows the usage of VR without any controllers.

With the help of sensors, your hand and fingers are tracked in real-time and visualized in the VR environment. This let's you use your hands naturally in any game or application that uses VR hands.

The Oculus Quest 2, a quality flagship headset on a budget, already has this system, opening this technology to many households.

What are the benefits one may ask? Hand tracking in VR is a very appealing feature. No need to learn the placement and functions of the buttons on the controllers anymore, shortening the learning curve of the VR headset.

Hand tracking is similar to the touchscreen technology, everything just got much faster and more intuitive.
