Did you hear about the HTC Vive Tracker announced during CES? Are you wondering how you can get your hands on one before everyone else? The latest article on the Vive blog gives us some insight and the most important item is that sign-ups are now open for business. If you have a creative idea to incorporate the use of the Vive Tracker HTC wants to help explore your idea with you.
When the Tracker was announced a couple weeks ago it was said that 1000 of these accessories would be available for developers and creative studios. At the time there wasn’t a direct mention of how to be eligible to receive one. We knew there would be an application process and it would go through the developer’s portal on the Vive website.
So far we’ve seen the Tracker added to a baseball bat, gloves, a fire hose, and mock weapons with haptic feedback for use in VR. Some early test with other devs has shown that a tracker could be added to each ankle giving the user full body tracking in a VR environment.

*Note to any new developers. Get yourself registered on the Vive developer’s portal for access to like-minded people and the Vive team. There are lots of opportunities to be a part of and to help grow your own ideas.
For more info about the Tracker check out the source link at the bottom, but for those who just want to jump to the application should CLICK HERE.
We know there are lots of creative people out there who have great ideas to integrate with the Vive or just in virtual reality in general. We’re at the forefront of a whole new dimension and it’s going to be an awesome ride. Let us know if you’ve reached out to HTC in some way about an idea you are working on.
