Oculus VR is spending a bit more of that Facebook money this week on Pebbles Interfaces, an Israeli company that specializes in developing hardware and software for tracking human motion and gestures in 3D space.

This is likely aimed at reinforcing Oculus' own efforts to research and develop effective motion control systems, such as its prototype Oculus Touch motion controller

Oculus made a point of highlighting Pebbles' expertise in depth-sensing and computer vision technology in its blog post announcing the deal, and noted that Pebbles personnel will join Oculus' engineering teams to work on (among other things) motion tracking and "human-computer interactions."

An example of such an interaction can be seen in a Pebbles promo video (also embedded above) showcasing its efforts to create a system that can effectively track your hands in real time and model them in a virtual reality environment.
