Because of this, HTC has decided to keep the application process open so they can more properly sift through the applications and (hopefully) give out more Vive Trackers for developing these ideas.
“We are already seeing fresh thinking for VIVE Tracker and we couldn’t be more excited by the breadth and depth of the applications we’ve received,” said Daniel O’Brien, GM, US and EMEA, HTC VIVE. “For us, the tracker represents an important investment in the VR community to grow the future of VR without limits on experimentation.”
