HTC's standalone Vive Focus will soon get 6DoF VR controllers

At the World Conference on VR Industry in Nanchang, China today, HTC announced this new "Vive 6DoF Developer Kit" which includes a pair of 6DoF controllers, plus a tracking attachment that goes on top of the Vive Focus. Much like how developers can port their two-handed VR experiences to single-controller VR headsets via Vive Wave, this time they can even preserve two-handed controls thanks to this dev kit. For some reason, Graylin and his company are staying mum on how the 6DoF controller tracking works here. It's worth noting that since this is only a dev kit for Vive Wave developers, it's unclear whether consumers will eventually be able to make the same upgrade to their existing Vive Focus headsets. Regardless, this is a good sign of what's to come for the Vive Focus and similar standalone 6DoF VR devices.
