Review: Oculus Touch VR Hand Controllers

A Simple Click Really Helps

Virtual reality needs motion controls, period.

If you’re an Oculus Rift owner, you may have had some fun times playing games that use the Xbox One controller packed in the box. Eagle Flight‘s pretty good. But eagles don’t got no hands anyway. Any other situation, you’re gonna want hands, and that means motion controls. Oculus is strangely late to the party with its controller solution—Vive shipped with two motion controllers, and PlayStation’s Move controllers have been available since 2010—but that’s just because it was working on a solution that goes way beyond a pair of tarted-up Wiimotes. Now that Oculus Touch is here, it’s gonna be hard to go back to anything else.
