SteamVR Laser Pointer

A short demo of the Vive controllers with SteamVR.

One thing to think about is that with a HOTAS the Vive controllers and their ‘laser pointer’ might work quite well with DCS cockpit systems. You fly with hands-on stick and throttle, and then if you need to hit a switch or MFD button, you’d pick up the Vive controller (that you left next to your right hand I guess, just like you do today with a mouse) and point / click away?

I know that ‘I can’t see the keyboard, VR doesn’t work!’ comes up a lot, so it is interesting to see these new UI interactions being fleshed out a bit with a mouse pointer surrogate.


I can tell you one thing, and that is, it looks a lot more awkward than it really is.
