After strapping on an Oculus Rift headset, one of the first things people want to do is reach out and feel around in their new virtual world, but, until now, their pokes and prods have gone unanswered. Oculus hopes to fill this void in the VR experience with a new gadget called Oculus Touch. Announced alongside the consumer version of the Rift, Touch features two sensor-laden, hand-held remotes that produce vibrations when touching something in a virtual world. The controllers are currently in development and are likely to ship to consumers sometime next year.
