Control VR, the company that offers a solution for tracking the detailed movements of your upper body and fingers, have managed to whip up quite the storm over an amazingly short period of time.
Since their Kickstarter campaign launched a week ago they’ve not only hit their goal of $250k but as of writing have blown past it by $30k – still with another 23 days left on the timer. Additionally, they’ve shown extraordinary confidence in the strength of their product by inviting VR enthusiasts from subreddit /r/oculus to pop over to the office and try it for themselves – this resulted in a series of positive impressions being posted back to reddit and it’s fair to say the company has been welcomed into the VR community.
Ben Lang and Rev. Kyle swung by Control VR’s booth and grabbed some hands-on time with the system (more on this later) and Ben sat down with the company’s CEO Alex Sarnoff and their CTO Ali Kord to dig a little deeper into what the system is all about.
