HTC's bite-sized Vive Tracker, which brings real-life objects and peripherals into the virtual world, can be pre-ordered today as part of three accessory bundles.
Until now, the $99 Tracker had only been available to businesses and devs, but soon everyone will be able to get their mitts on the nifty add-on.
The first bundle includes a 'hyper blaster' retro light gun, which can be used as a gun and motion controller when paired with a Tracker. The hyper blaster bundle will retail for $149, and includes one Vive Tracker, virtual reality shooter Duck Season, and the hyper blaster itself.
The second package includes a pair of custom-molded rackets created for Ping Pong and Tennis games. Along with both rackets, the bundle includes one Vive Tracker and a pack-in redemption code for Virtual Sports.
Rebuff Reality is also selling another bundle featuring TrackStraps, which can be used to attached Trackers to hands, feet, and other body parts to enable full body tracking. The $25 offering comes with a pair of TrackStraps and a code for boogie simulator Redfoot Bluefoot Dancing (but not the Tracker itself).
The accessory bundles are all on sale now, and are expected to arrive by mid-December. Check out the Vive blog for more information.
