Is there anything novel in this?

This seems at about the same level of quality as some of their other related patents for things like VR hand tracking. Nothing obviously original or novel in terms of ideas and lots of stuff that's already offered commercially in some form elsewhere. Even allowing for the delay in the thins coming through these are weak.

I know some companies like to throw patents around like confetti but I just can't see how some of these got through an initial review with a patent attorney.
