CyberGlove Systems Acquires Inertial Based Motion Capture Glove

SAN JOSE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 4, 2015CyberGlove Systems (CGS) has announced its recent acquisition of Animazoo-Synertial’s IGS Glove at this year’s Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco, CA. As the worldwide leader in glove technology, CGS will now expand its product portfolio to include Animazoo-Synertial’s IGS glove, which will now be known as the CyberGlove IGS.

“We are very excited to add the CyberGlove IGS to our product line,” said Faisal Yazadi, CEO of CyberGlove Systems. “I believe this acquisition greatly enhances our ability to meet the needs of motion capture professionals, by streamlining their pipelines and reducing the time needed for post processing and analyzing data.”

In addition to the bend sensor based CyberGlove III motion capture glove, CGS will now offer the inertial (IMU) based CyberGlove IGS motion capture glove. By offering a greater variety of hand-centric motion capture and haptics technologies, CGS will continue to be the one stop shop for the motion capture industry.

“CyberGlove Systems is the perfect fit for the IGS glove,” said Ali Kord, CEO of Animazoo-Synertial. “They have been in this industry for over 20 years and are already the de-facto leader in glove technology including haptics. Adding an inertial based glove for motion capture will only strengthen their position as the leader in the marketplace.”

CyberGlove Systems will be exhibiting in booth #2135 at GDC 2015 in San Francisco, CA from March 2-6.
