Valve Knuckles Controller

2 min read

Valve unveiled their newest version of the "Knuckles VR controllers" in the developer version this week, while Valve has yet to offer the product and no sign of launch timing, according to recent updates that the Knuckles VR controllers will soon be the final version at hand.

For those who do not know the new Knuckles VR controllers are like our knuckles, the company claims that in the recent signs the experience is more immersive by bringing the user's natural hand skill into the virtual world. Plus, the user can also feel touched - just like Oculus touch controllers who also know how to track fingers - Valve's new Knuckles VR controllers have sensors that allow the controller to detect full finger movement and even grip power.

A little about the specification:

Precision improvements of the fingers by an advanced detector

We have updated the firmware to take advantage of the new sensors

Valve says they previously sent "hundreds" of EV2 prototypes, at which point the company expects the company to manufacture small Knuckles VR controllers and then begin mass production.

With the latest enhancements in the controller, 2019 seems like a better bet to buy the product, though the company keeps the cards close to itself as of the release date. Whenever the release date arrives, many expect Velve to launch alongside the joysticks one of its three new virtual reality games, and Valve has confirmed that they are in development.
