Brekel Pro Hands – Retail Installer Download

Known Issues/Limitations

  • Strong InfraRed light will deteriorate tracking quality (especially sunlight)
  • Jewelry, watches or long baggy sleeves may confuse the tracker
  • The hand will not initialize for all starting poses (spread fingers out for immediate response)
  • Occasionally a hand can briefly initialize as the wrong hand (left vs. right), upside-down hands initialize flipped (inappropriately)
  • Sometimes fist rotations don’t work
  • Upside-down hands can initialize as right-side up (inappropriately)
