First Time Setup


Step 1

Start by logging in to our Resource Center. If you don't have an account please create one.

Step 2

Download and install the latest version of Manus Core Web Installer on our resource center.

Step 3

Install the MANUS Core software.

MANUS Core is a background application taking care of the glove data. You can configure the gloves in the MANUS Core Dashboard.

With the MANUS Core software installed, you can now set up the gloves.

Wearing the gloves

The sensors of the glove can be attached to your fingertips in 2 different ways:

  1. You can use the finger sleeves. They come in three sizes and are reusable.

  1. You can use the sports tape. This provides the most secure attachment of the sensors to your fingers.

Once you have chosen your way of attaching the sensors, you can click them in.


To use your Quantum Metagloves wireless, you’ll need to connect the Metaglove dongle to your computer. Use at least a USB2 port, and make sure there’s nothing between the dongle and gloves for the best wireless connection. We recommend using the gloves up to 15 meters, or about 50 feet, away from the dongle.

Wireless mode

With the dongle connected to your computer, you can connect the gloves wirelessly. You will see the first time setup screen. Choose your username and continue.

Turn the gloves on. When they finish booting, put them in the pairing mode. If the hardware is detected, the icons will turn green.

Wired mode

To use the gloves in the wired mode, use the included USB C cable to plug them into your PC. If you’re using your gloves wired, you don’t need to pair them to a dongle, you only need to turn them on.


The Quantum Metagloves use electromagnetic field to track the position of your fingertips. Inside the casing, there is also an IMU to track the rotation of your wrist.

To calibrate the gloves to your hands, use the MANUS Core Dashboard. To calibrate the gloves to your hands, use MANUS Core Dashboard. This process includes 3 poses, with 3 steps per pose. For each pose you will see a preview, then you’ll have time to mimic the pose, and during the last step the pose will be recorded. During the calibration, please mimic the poses in a comfortable fashion.

  1. First, place your hand on a flat surface and close your fingers, but point your thumb outwards.

  1. After that, raise your hand and close all fingers to make a fist

  1. Lastly, touch the base of the palm of your hand repeatedly with your fingertips. Continue till the calibration step is complete.

After you finish the calibration on one glove, follow the same steps for your other hand.

The calibration is saved as part of the profile you created on the system, so the next time you turn them on, you don’t need to calibrate again.
