Stretch Goal – Wireless Communication for Reactive Grip
Getting a Grip Attached to Your Hardware Project
We have always wanted to see the Reactive Grip bring touch feedback into all kinds of your projects. For this reason the Reactive Grip was designed to be easily mounted into alternate configurations that provide the functionality of other gaming peripherals or to let you do something completely new.
Simple attachment points and readily available dimensions let you add responsive touch feedback into your hardware projects. So whether you want to use your grip as a joystick in a flight sim, a pair of grips as a machine gun, or if you're adding haptic feedback to your robot controls, it's easy to use the Reactive Grip in new ways. And even if your creations aren’t beautiful, they’ll still look great once you put on your Oculus Rift. =)
We encourage the community to share their designs and unique applications for touch feedback. We will also be making some of the attachments shown here directly available for purchase.
"Add a Grip" and Limited Special Reward Tiers
We are announcing the option to "Add a Grip" to any development kit reward tier for $165. We are also opening additional "Limited Special" reward tiers for a 1-handed development kit at $165 or a 2-handed development kit at $319. Both of these options offer an opportunity for those that wanted to add a second controller to an existing 1-handed dev kit or to add a third or fourth controller to a 2-handed kit. Rewards will be fulfilled in the order in which you backed us.
Bundled Tracking Solutions
From our survey we found that some of you would like to have an add-on to your dev kit or bundle that provides a tracking system compatible with the Sixense STEM system. We are still working on options for this and will let you know as soon as we have more information.
Thanks for you continued support!
