Oculus Touch

Oculus are releasing their long-awaited Touch controllers this week, which are used in conjunction with the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset. Until now the Rift could only be used with a regular XBox controller, so the new hardware will make a big difference for gamers. The Verge has been taking a look:

The controllers’ single coolest feature, though, may be a set of capacitive sensors that detect how you’re holding them. Touch doesn’t offer finger-by-finger articulation, but it can give you surprisingly responsive virtual hands. If your forefinger isn’t on the trigger, for example, Touch intuits that you’re pointing it outward. It can tell precisely where on the top panel you’ve rested your thumb, and if it’s raised, put your virtual hand in a thumbs-up position. The options vary a little by experience, but they create a totally new set of very natural gestures.
