Oculus Quest to have hand tracking?

Any plans for Quest to support non-controller based hand tracking and simple gesture recognition?

    hey @nvrdftd

    John Carmack did touch on this quickly during his keynote on day 2. It is being tested internally but seems unlikely to ship with the Quest. Perhaps it will be included in a later iteration of a newer unit down the road though.

    Yes, Carmack mentioned that it works, but it's just too computation-intensive to be viable on a mobile SoC what-with all the other resources VR itself consumes.
