Techy Gift Guide: Game-Changing, Virtual-Reality Hardware

Oculus Touch

Oculus has been a game-changer in the tech world with its innovative, virtual-reality developments. Following the release of the Oculus Rift VR headset back in March, the VR company introduced Oculus Touch, a pair of controllers to use with each hand. The device brings a new dimension to virtual-reality by integrating and reflecting arm and hand movements into the digital world. For use with the Oculus Rift, Touch incorporates additional limbs that alter the interactive experience completely.

This is the holy grail for gamers,” said Oculus co-founder and CEO Brendan Iribe. “You put on a headset, you grab your controllers, and suddenly you are teleported into that game.

Pricing for Oculus Touch begins at $199. For more information, visit
