Control VR Kickstarter ends successfully

Control VR 2The Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign for Control VR, a globe-based virtual reality motion control system ended successfully Saturday with $442,227 raised.

The company had asked for $250,000.

Delivery of the devices is scheduled to begin in December.

A rig that includes both hands, arms, fingers and body cost $600 through the Kickstarter.

The price is a little high for consumers, especially when added to the $350 cost of the Oculus Rift headset and the $500 cost of the Virtuix Omni, but it would be a good fit for virtual reality arcades, such as the one currently being planned for Boston.
