As standalone wireless headsets such as the Oculus Quest grow strongly in popularity, 3dRudder is preparing full support of the wireless experience. The new 3dRudder Wireless Bridge adds wireless supports to the 3dRudder foot motion controller for PC. This new module enables developers and businesses to create games and applications for wireless headsets that integrate native 3dRudder support, providing users with a natural motion experience. It is especially of great importance as hand tracking becomes the main interaction method.

The release of wireless headsets such as the Oculus Quest paves the way for a massive adoption of VR by consumers and businesses. The objective is an out-of-the-box ready experience, where users do not need powerful PCs and do not have to juggle with complex command schemes found in hand controllers. The hands suddenly become free of controllers and the user can interact naturally with the VR worlds, either bear hands or with gloves offering haptic and force feedback. The feet are used for what they are best at: moving. The 3dRudder foot motion controller is used to handle effortless and hyper intuitive movements at the feet, offering 4 axes that can be combined together to move in the 3 dimensions seamlessly (forward/backward, left/right stafe, left/right turn, up/down) as shown in this video.

The 3dRudder Wireless Bridge is a small module to which to connect the 3dRudder foot motion controller for PC. It connects to the local wifi network to which the wireless handset is also connected. The 3dRudder Wireless Bridge is on sale at 3dRudderBusiness, our professional website. It is intended for use by game and application developers to prepare for a future wireless version of the 3dRudder dedicated to wireless VR headsets. It can also be used by businesses that want to offer right away bespoke wireless experiences and need a natural solution for motion.

This release follows the introduction last month of several features to our free 3dRudder companion Dashboard and a beta section of our SDK. Most notably, we added support of the Oculus Quest via the Oculus Link cable. The 3dRudder Wireless Bridge is available via the official 3dRudder business store for $99/99€.
