It’s a sign that this is a useful bit of technology — a camera-based motion sensor that attaches right to the front of an Oculus Rift headset.
A sensor attached to the front of a virtual reality headset could also, theoretically, do double-duty for positional tracking, as well, eliminating the need for an external camera.
The device allows wearers to fully use their hands inside a virtual world without gloves, rings, joysticks, or other peripherals. The price starts at $99 with a basic Oculus Rift DK2 mount — a desktop-mounted option is also available.
Shipping is expected to begin next summer.
