HTC Vive has unveiled a new VR tracker that can be used to track a user’s, or other objects’, movements in VR experiences without any additional accessories.
Vive’s new VR tracker has not yet been named and is primarily being showcased to give VR developers an opportunity to start thinking about how the self-tracking tracker could be used in VR experiences. It should be possible to use up to five of the new trackers simultaneously. This would make it possible to track a user’s body movements in VR experiences if, for example, two were attached to a user’s elbows, two to their knees, and one at their hip, according to RoadToVR.
There is no information yet on when HTC Vive plans to release its latest VR tracker. Below is a video clip where HTC Vive’s product manager, Shen Ye, talks more about the new tracker from HTC Vive.
