When you hear the word tracker, the first thing that comes to your mind is a fitness tracker, however, this new product from HTC is not a fitness tracker. It is a tracker which can be fitted onto certain objects and it will track the motion of the object and turn it into an input of the game which you are playing, essentially making it a controller. This $99 HTC Tracker is more like a companion to the HTC Vive headset and if you are into hardcore VR gaming, then this is something that you should totally be buying.
This tracker can also be used for complex tracking such as full body tracking which can allow for complex inputs into the game. Sounds pretty interesting right? If you are into the highly immersive VR games then this is the product add-on to your rig as it will completely transform your gameplay and give it a whole new level of experience. This will also allow VR developers to implement more naturally occurring movements tracking into their experiences. With that said, the VR tracker will be available to purchase starting the second half of 2017.
