The Sixense STEM system for VR motion control blew through its $250,000 goal one day one. The campaign is now at $476,000 and appears well on the way to $1 million. Sixense have announce a ‘stretch goal’ at $550,000 which will make the STEM base station wireless.
Sixense have announced a ‘stretch goal’, a funding goal beyond the original goal which, if met, will see the addition of some feature to the product in question. The first stretch goal for the Sixense STEM Kickstarter is at $550,00, and Sixense say that if the campaign reaches that amount, they’ll make the STEM system’s base station wireless:
“Wireless STEM Base. We’ll add wireless communications between the STEM Base and the host computer. The wireless Base will be powered by a rechargeable battery with approximately 8 hours of play time (or A/C power of course). This means that you’ll be free to place the STEM Base away from the host computer, which can be very helpful if you are not playing at a desktop. Note that when the STEM Base is running on battery power, it will not charge Controllers or STEM Packs that are docked,” wrote Sixense in an update to the Kickstarter on September 13th.
The company is also making it clear that this could be one of even more stretch goals.
“Be assured that we are working on other stretch goals that are shaped by the great feedback that we’ve received from many of you. We will have more details on these additional stretch goals soon.”
