 EXOS Wrist DK2 has been launched on the market in October and considering the prices of US $5300, it is suitable for large enterprises.

The previous model, EXOS Wrist DK1, which was released in February 2018, was only distributed in limited numbers due to manufacturing restrictions. The EXOS Wrist DK2’s design has been revamped in such a way that allows for the device to be produced in larger quantities and thus is available to any developer who wants to push the boundaries of VR experiences. Improved features include significant reduction in weight, improved wearability, and richer haptic reproduction (different levels of hardness, weight, texture of virtual objects can represented via improvements in software).

The wearability is also significantly improved while covering various hand sizes. Moreover, the device is more sanity since all the materials touching the skin are now sweatproof.
