Turning the Physical Into the Virtual
Virtual reality gaming continues to grow and evolve. The latest step forward, for HTC Vive and its headset, is the release of trackers that can be attached to your body or special peripherals to essentially bring them into VR games. You'll need a HTC Vive headset for these to work, but what they deliver is a greater sense of immersion. Right now there are three available. The Hyper Blaster Bundle ($150) includes the tracker, gun and a game. The Racket Sports Bundle ($150) includes ping pong and tennis racket handles along with a tracker and a game. You can also pick up the trackers on their own for $100 each and Rebuff Reality is selling straps for attaching the devices to your body for $25 a pop.
