As VR seeks to become more immersive with each new hardware upgrade, peripheral designers are making a serious effort to disguise the fact that you're holding a controller. There are several gloves that want you to 'feel' VR with your hands but Manus VR wants to immerse your whole arm.
Like Hands Omni, GloveOne and Manus are still in the early phases of development, but the teams are getting very close.
There's still work to be done getting the gloves out to developers but once that happens, likely some time later this year or next, you're one step closer to using your actual hands in VR.
Being able to articulate your fingers without the need of a plastic controller would make the whole VR experience much more immersive.
