HTC is now releasing a new VR tracker for its Vive VR system. The new tracker is named “Vive Ultimate Tracker” and is equipped with cameras, allowing it to track the position of various body parts in VR experiences without being connected to a base station.
Up to five Vive Ultimate Trackers can be used simultaneously, enabling tracking of the user’s legs and other body parts. The tracker is primarily developed for use in VR experiences where parts or the whole body are tracked, such as in dance and sports games. The tracker weighs 94 grams and has a battery life of up to seven hours.
A Vive Ultimate Tracker costs 229 euros, but it is also available in a three-pack with some other accessories for 669 euros.
