Logitech has developed a vr stylus, which makes it possible to sketch designs in virtual reality, in collaboration with vr glasses. The VR Ink Pilot Edition can therefore be used to draw ‘in the air’, but also works simply on 2D surfaces.
The VR Ink was announced by Logitech shortly before the Augmented World Expo. This fair is currently being held in Santa Clara in the US state of California and will last until Friday. Logitech also wants to demonstrate its new vr stylus there. According to Logitech, the VR Ink lasts 2.5 hours on the battery and can be recharged via USB. In addition, there are a number of function buttons on the stylus and there is a touch strip for additional control options.
To be able to draw in vr, suitable vr glasses are required, and Logitech works together with HTC, who has made the Vive suitable for the stylus. So users can see with the glasses on the design that they are sketching with the VR Ink. The stylus also works on other vr headsets that use Steam VR tracking. In addition, Logitech is calling on other companies to become partners, probably to make VR Ink compatible with more products.
When the VR Ink Pilot Edition should be released is not yet clear, as the manufacturer currently only provides a select number of partners with the stylus. Logitech will probably first release the stylus in the United States.
