Virtual reality company Merge Labs announced today from the Virtual Reality Developers Conference (VRDC) that it has developed the first universal motion controller for mobile virtual reality.
The universal motion controller for mobile VR is compatible with existing iOS and Android devices, along with Unity and Web VR.
“As the VR industry matures, we will see a standardization of input devices over proprietary solutions, and with today’s announcement, we are excited to help push this forward,” says Founder Franklin Lyons. “We believe that developers should have access to as many potential customers as possible, which is why we are releasing a universal motion controller that will support all mobile devices, including existing iOS and Android devices, as well as emerging platforms such as webVR.”
Lyons adds, “Developers thinking about building mobile VR experiences using a motion controller are also thinking about how they can reach the largest audience possible. And Merge is committed to giving them tools they need to achieve this.”
