Valve teases new prototype VR controller

Valve teases new prototype VR controller

The Vive’s┬ácontrollers are not bad at all but the boffins at Valve were ready to show a new prototype of VR controllers at Steam Dev Days in Seattle.

Looking at the image, it appears to have a grip and grasping function, a feature that would prove very useful in VR. The other image second from the right also appears to be a sleeker version of the current Vive┬ácontroller. It’s hard to tell how this will work but no doubt we’ll hear more about this in the coming hours.

As well as controllers, there’s a new base station coming although the image gives nothing away.
