Logitech BRIDGE Uses HTC Vive Tracker to Turn Your Hands and Keyboard into VR

Logitech and HTC Vive allow Use of Projected Keyboard in Virtual Reality Form

Both HTC Vive and Logitech have combined forces to bring a novel hardware and software package. This will aid developers to enter text while making applications and games.

Worth about $150, the kit bears the term BRIDGE and it consists of a Logitech G keyboard. Also a Vive tracker exists in the works and it tracks the typing movements and copies them in VR form.

Logitech is churning out a batch of 50 of these kits for now. It is an exciting proposal to see crossover technology bringing gadgets into this field.

The device functions across the entire Steam system. As for the tracker, it not only aligns the keys you are typing, it also gauges your hand movements thereby allowing you to properly adjust your position to do the job.

The keyboard is literally brought into your digital locus of control. Thus you can browse to your heart’s content. The BRIDGE SDK lets you have a custom-made keyboard.

Therefore, remapping can take place in an instant too. Since using a headset gets in the way of working on a keyboard, HTC Vive and Logitech seem to have solved this problem in one fell swoop.
