You've enjoyed games on the Vision Pro, but controllers always need to be added. Relying solely on eye tracking and hand gestures limits the types of games you can play. This limitation is particularly noticeable with games ported from other headsets or more complex games.

However, there's good news on the horizon. Surreal Touch has announced they are working on 6DoF controllers specifically designed for the Vision Pro. These controllers feature two buttons and a joystick and are available in two sleek colour options: glossy Pearl White and frosted Stellar Grey. Surreal Touch says these controllers boast “omnidirectional sensing” and a “proprietary spatial computing algorithm.” They claim these features will offer “ultimate precision and latency.”

Enhanced gaming experience

Surreal Touch also promises stable performance and efficient battery life for these controllers, although specific battery life details are yet to be disclosed. The most exciting is the SDK created by Surreal Touch to port popular games to Vision Pro. There are already videos of some of the most beloved VR games, such as Half-Life: Alyx and Beat Sabre, being played with these new controllers.

The combination of the Vision Pro's superior visual clarity and these new controllers is exactly what VR enthusiasts have been waiting for. It's exciting to see developers pushing the Vision Pro in a new direction, even if it differs from how Apple envisioned the product being used.

Anticipation builds

Surreal Touch has yet to announce the pricing or release date for these controllers. However, many will eagerly await more details given their potential for the Vision Pro. Adding these controllers could significantly enhance the gaming experience on the Vision Pro, making it a serious contender in the VR gaming market.

In conclusion, the Vision Pro is set to become a legitimate VR gaming headset by introducing Surreal Touch's 6DoF controllers. This development opens up new possibilities for games and could attract more gamers to the Vision Pro platform. Stay tuned for more updates as we await further announcements from Surreal Touch.
