Microsoft announces its own controllers for VR headset HoloLens. Controller movements will be tracked by sensors in the headset instead of external cameras or markers. They will be sold at the end of this year in a package with Acer VR headset, Star VR, for $399.

“These motion controllers were perfectly designed to work with our mixed reality headsets,” said Microsoft’s Alex Kipman on stage at the conference. “If you can see your hands, we’re tracking them.”

Microsoft’s controllers are very similar to those of Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. They are part of Microsoft’s plan for virtual and mixed reality systems that can be created anywhere without the need of “VR rooms.”
