Earlier this week VRFocus reported on the announcement of Merge Labs’ universal motion controller, Moonshot, as revealed at the Virtual Reality Developers Conference (VRDC), San Francisco. Compatible with a variety of platforms, both virtual reality (VR) and more traditional systems, the Moonshot controller will soon be made available to developers.
A motion-control input device, Moonshot features motion tracking and a variety of input buttons. It’s not yet been confirmed as to whether Moonshot replicates the Google Daydream View controller’s 3 degrees-of-freedom (3DOF) or offers greater depth input, though given the demonstration in the video below VRFocus believes that 6 degrees-of-freedom (6DOF) should not be expected at this point.
The Moonshot universal motion controller will be compatible with the Samsung Gear VR, iOS and Android devices, Web VR, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Microsoft HoloLens and more. VRFocus will keep you updated with all the latest details on the Moonshot controller and the Merge VR head-mounted display (HMD).
