Sixense Entertainment, the developer that brought PlayStation Move controls to Portal 2, is developing its own wireless motion-tracking controller and software development kit (SDK), the company announced today.
The controller will be compatible with content created for the Sixense-developed Razer Hydra motion controller and include Oculus Rift support. Forthcoming development kits will support three wireless motion trackers and include "fully playable controllers," a render of which you can see above.
"We're excited to finally provide a wireless solution that addresses the needs of both consumers and developers," Sixense co-founder Amir Rubin said. "The ecosystem around gaming and virtual reality has grown dramatically, making now the perfect time to announce our new consumer product and direct-to-developer dev kits."
A consumer version of the controller will follow the developer kit release. Additional details, including pricing and availability, will be available "soon," according to a press release from the company. For more on Sixense and its controller-free collaboration with Intel, you can watch a video in which we went controller-free with Portal 2 at CES 2013.
