Getting Started with OBSKUR Gloves #
Just imagine how easy it would be to wake up, throw some sensors on, and start your stream if everything was controlled in one super easy app. Stop dreamin’, cause the box to your digital future is right here!
Initial Setup (Gloves) #
Let’s start by setting up your new OBSKUR Gloves.
The Mocap Box #
The Mocap Box is like an onion, it’s got layers. The box is made up of three sections- the Black Box with Sensors, the White Box with Gloves, and the bottom with accessories. Start with the White Box with the Gloves. Slide the sleeve off of the box, remove the foam insert and the gloves, setting them aside. Plug the Gloves Receiver into a front facing USB Type-A.
The Character Tab #
In OBSKUR, we’re going to the Character Tab. We’re going through the Setup process, so Start Setup.
The Gloves in the White Box slip onto your hands. There is a mount on top of each glove for the HAND L Sensor and the HAND R Sensor.
Put each HAND Sensor in the mount for the Glove. HAND L will go on the left glove, and HAND R will go on the right glove. Once you have the Gloves on, continue to Calibrate L and Calibrate R, respectively.
Each Glove Calibrates independently. Calibrate the glove by following the prompts for hand poses. Pay special attention to what position the thumb is in. Each pose will automatically move forward once it is registered.
Once the Gloves are calibrated, the body and hands should be moving in the Characters Tab.
That’s it! #

- For best performance, charge the Gloves an hour before use.
- Gloves don’t turn on. Charge the gloves using the provided charging cables.
- Hand poses seem stiff. Redo the calibration, paying close attention to the position of the fingers in the images. Do not readjust the poses for comfort during calibration.
- Gloves don’t show in the Gloves Window. Reseat the Gloves Module by pressing the button at the knuckle side of the module, and pulling gently. When replacing, it will click into place. Alternatively, re-pair the Gloves to the Receiver: Hold the Gloves Receiver button down until it turns Red. Hold the button on the Glove until it turns Green, then slow blinking blue. Once the LED is blinking slow blue, hold it to the Gloves Receiver until the light changes to Blue / Green. Once both Gloves have been paired, the LED light will be solid Green.
