The Smartgloves come in a box that contains the following items:

  1. A left and right Smartglove - the hub and sensors are integrated into the textile.
  2. Two short USB-C to USB-A cables for connecting them to the power bank and to your computer (for configuration). This cables will only be required for use if you do not have a glove-ready version of the Smartsuit Pro II. 
  3. Two long USB-C to USB-A cables for connecting the power bank and your computer (for configuration).
  4. A travel case for carrying the gloves.

To make it easier to put on the gloves, start by unfastening the valcro straps. Then, simply slide your hand into the glove and pull the leather on from the bottom. For the best accuracy, make sure that the sensors are positioned on your second to last finger joint. Finally, fasten the velcro strap so that your Smartgloves fit snugly around your hands.

Tips for optimal performance

To ensure optimal performance while using your Smartgloves in a specific location, it is important to consider the hardware setup and take necessary precautions.

We highly recommend using a 5GHz WiFi network for optimal performance, as it ensures a stable frame rate. Office, university, and public networks are usually crowded and have advanced security measures. Therefore, we recommend using a dedicated router.

Additionally, it is important to stay within the range of your WiFi network to maintain a stable connection.



Please avoid pulling the Smartgloves from the side of the hub where the wrist sensor is located, as doing so may cause damage to the cables and result in unresponsiveness in Rokoko Studio. If the size is too tight, do not force it as this could lead to stretching of the wires and the hub when using the gloves. We can easily facilitate a size swap if you contact us. 

Removing the Smartgloves

When you're finished using the Smartgloves for the day or taking a break, use the loops on each finger tip to gently remove the textile from your hand. Be sure to move the textile away from your fingers and avoid pulling it from the sensors, as doing so can cause damage.
