Vive Focus 3 , instead, has just released a new version of the runtime that dramatically improves hands tracking , making it able to track properly also hands that are moving very fast. The solution is very versatile, and can track the full body and also the hands.

Sensics is Building a VR Headset Specially Made for Arcades and Theme Parks

Road to VR

Sensics, who is a co-founder of Razer’s OSVR initiative, has naturally used the foundation of the OSVR HDK2 headset in creating the Goggles for Public VR. There’s also a pair of fans to prevent fogging, and an optional integrated Leap Motion module built into the headset for hand interactions without the need for controllers.

Hands-On With Valve’s Knuckles Prototype Controllers

UploadVR Between Realities podcast

UploadVR hasn’t gotten its hands on a pair just yet, so we’ve reached out to the development community to see what they think. User interfaces in virtual reality start with your hands. We know that now with the Oculus Touch and the HTC Vive, but even when VR was simply a screen strapped to your head many felt that hands were the future. We wanted to demonstrate why this kind of input—your hands themselves—was meaningful.

OSVR - a Look Ahead


Sensics and Razer launched OSVR 18 months ago with the intent of democratizing VR. The dream VR system might be a goggle from one vendor, input devices from another and tracking from a third. VR arcades, for instance, might use custom hardware or professional tracking systems. For example, head tracking can come from optical trackers or inertial ones. Predictive tracking lowers perceived latency by estimating future orientation.
