Apple's patent for " IMU-based gloves " was authorized, with the authorization announcement number CN109582125B.

The patent abstract shows that the present disclosure relates to a VR glove capable of measuring the movement of individual phalanges and thumb bones. The VR glove may include inertial measurement units (IMUs) to track the movement of one or more finger segments or hand segments.

The IMU may include one or more motion sensors, such as gyroscopes and accelerometers, which may be positioned adjacent to a finger (or thumb) bone and may measure the inertial motion of the corresponding bone. In some examples, the VR glove may include a magnetometer to determine the direction of the Earth's magnetic field, and may also include one or more other electronic components, such as electrodes, for sensing heading, enabling capacitive touch, or interfacing between fingertips. contact sensing.
