At this year's CES event in Las Vegas, HTC took the stage to showcase a completely new VR headset called HTC Vive Cosmos. It is a headset aimed at casual users or anyone interested in trying out the immersive world of VR. The team only showcased the design of the product and remained quiet about all other details. While it is still being tight-lipped about details, it has shared a short video clip to tease Cosmos VR controllers.
The clip has been shared by the official HTC Vive Twitter account showing how the controllers look like and how they are supposed to work. These controllers are illuminated so that they can track a user's every single movement even in the dark. It is claimed to be able to track even a flick of the wrist.
The video further mentions that the placement of buttons and joystick is quite ergonomic and better than others. It is suggesting that users will find it intuitive to use the controller and interact with the virtual world. In the tweet, the team has mentioned that "the gamer-friendly controls & seamless tracking on the VIVE COSMOS controllers are designed to give you greater control of your VR experience."
