As hinted at during HTC’s reveal on Sunday of it’s Valve collaboration in VR, the Vive virtual reality headset, Steam VR does indeed have it’s own specially designed controllers. This is what they look like.
Embargo’s on Valve’s new Steam VR platform are lifting and details are being shared from GDC 2015 now. This picture has emerged, showing not only the Steam VR controllers, manufactured by HTC, but what looks like the fabled base stations too.
Judging by the pictures, similar sensors are present on the nunchuck-style controllers – so it seems likely that the two base stations are used with the controllers in a similar manner. Whether our wild speculation on an inside-out IR marker system has any merit, we’re still waiting to find out.
