Stretch Goal #3

22 likes

You asked for it and, with your help, we're going to make it happen. For stretch goal number 3, we're going to replace the modified Wii nunchuk controllers with custom-designed hand controllers that allow for the kinds of complex interactions gamers have come to expect. The controller will sport the familiar analog stick, trigger, and secondary-fire buttons of the prototype, but will add 5 additional action buttons, all in a comfortable and ergonomic design. This will make it easier than ever to suit up and get your game on!

      Great to see a good stretch goal, should have come a long time ago!

      One thing I'm weary of now though is that they are using and selling nunchuck controllers that are from nintendo's wii console! Isn't that a violation? Cant they be sued over it? I hope not as it would be a huge shame, but i thought its best to bring it to attention at least, although I'm sure its already been thought of?

      Anyhow, its even more important that we unlock this goal so that they can create there own controllers and not risk any law infringements.

      Can we still elect to receive the original controller with two buttons instead? Will you support both?

      I really hope that the next stretch goal is a Dataglove!

      @Yang Liang This Kickstarter is everything and more the original failed campaign was already. The original Kickstarter didn't include the hand controllers for example.

      While the current controller may meet some ideal, minimalist VR design, if the PrioVR wants to hit the ground running as much as possible I believe that this new controller design is a must. Games are being built with competitor's systems in mind right now (mine included) and this will greatly ease including PrioVR as another control scheme.

      Now that it has achieved the original goal - pledged of $225,000 goal! This should be the newest stretch goal!

      @Thomas The suit sensors will handle the hand orientation.

      The two input controller is included. The stretch goal is +5 additional inputs. In my experience (over 20 years) two inputs per hand is more than enough for immersive VR games, especially when you can apply several inputs to an analogue controller. Once you're immersed you need as few controls as possible to avoid confusion.

      Man this needs to happen, only 2 buttons each for each hands just ain't enough for gaming in most cases. Why is this even a stretch goal? It's supposed to be included... D:

      The funds have kinda slowed... I really hope we can get another $30,000!

      I for one am very pleased that we're getting a basic controller with enough action buttons. IMO it's more important and has more utility than a glove (which you haven't commented much on, but people have been asking :p). I'm aware it's a stretch goal, but I'm confident it'll be reached!

    11. Creator Thomas on March 17, 2014

      Question: will the controllers handle orientation of the hands?
