This way, it works both as a completely functional controller in any VR apps and programs, and, simultaneously, as an innovative device that lets you physically feel the things that you touch or take hold of or interact with in virtual reality.
You can play first-person shooter games or fighting games as well as interact with 3D applications using your hands to move, open, rotate, drag or drop 3D objects with high precision.
