I presume the guard if for people not to swing them around and hit their friends in the face right?



Hmm, pie.

Its a proximity sensor for tracking hands, gesture and fingers. Like more modern VR controllers on the Oculus Rift and Vive.

Open your hand up and it shows in-game. point your finger, grab something etc etc.

Another pic. Also inside out tracking is practically confirmed so no more reliance on a crappy PS camera!



Look great, day one for me if stock is available by then. I don't expect it until Q4 2022 at the earliest but good to know it's send out to developers already.

They do look awfully bulky, but getting closer to the Occulus Rift Touch controllers is an improvement over the Brookstone massage wand they were using before.



At frist glance, they look very awkward.

What do you mean by guard?
