HTC's virtual reality headset, the Vive, blew us away when we first tried it at MWC 2015. Back then, however, the company was using wired, 3D-printed controllers, which made the experience slightly cumbersome -- considering that you're expected to move around a dark room "blindfolded." Thankfully, HTC has already put together a wireless pair for developers; each one features motion-tracking sensors, a trigger button, digital touchpad and a design that's very reminiscent of the Wii's nunchuks. Now, these controllers are still in their prototype stage, but they should give you an idea of what's coming when the HTC Vive consumer edition launches.

Question for you: In terms of ergonomics, do you prefer this set or the Oculus Touch?

Edgar began hitting newsrooms as a young kid in the ’90s, when his dad worked at a regional newspaper. Growing up, he had two passions: technology and football (soccer). When he wasn't on the pitch scoring hat tricks, he could be found near his SNES or around the house, taking things apart. Edgar's also deeply in love with tacos, sneakers and FIFA, in no particular order. He lives in New York City with his better half.
