VIVE Tracker Bundles



We’re consistently impressed by the way the developer community has integrated Tracker into their experiences, prototypes and arcades. From MarioKart VR, to full body tracking, to the first VR keyboard, VIVE Tracker enables new types of VR projects quickly and affordably. But that’s just for developers and businesses.

Starting today, we’ve got our first line of Tracker peripherals and accessories for VIVE users at home. These bundles are available for pre-order today with expected arrival dates of mid-December (just in time for the holidays).

Hyperkin Hyper Blaster
The Hyper Blaster brings a retro light gun to VR for the first time. When paired with VIVE Tracker, the Hyper Blaster serves as both a gun and motion controller in supported games such as Duck Season, Arizona Sunshine, The American Dream VR, Operation Warcade, TacticalAR, and Practisim VR.

The Hyper Blaster will be sold exclusively through Amazon and includes Duck Season as a pack-in title, along with VIVE Tracker, all for $149.99. Duck Season, by Stress Level Zero, is a throwback to the golden age of 1980's gaming and movies with a hint of horror in a Spielburgian universe. Unique to Duck Season, the Blaster is virtually represented within the game world.

In addition to the six titles integrated at launch, we are working with 10 additional developers to integrate the Blaster by the spring of 2018.

You can learn more about the Hyper Blaster on our website.

Racket Sports Set
Custom-molded and weighted to feel like real paddles and rackets, the Racket Sports Set is packaged for both Ping Pong and Tennis games. Connected via a simple screw The set includes both Ping Pong and Tennis handles, a VIVE Tracker and a pack-in redemption code for Virtual Sports. Pre-orders are available today via Amazon, Abt Electronics, BH Photo, Fry’s, Gamestop, Micro Center and NewEgg with additional retailers expected.

In addition to Virtual Sports, the Racket Sports Set has support from six other titles today, and you can expect an additional six by end of year.

Get the full details on our website.



Rebuff Reality TrackStrap
The VIVE Tracker takes SteamVR tracking to another level of accuracy, easily adding feet, wrist, hip or leg tracking movement to VR experiences.

Rebuff Reality is selling TrackStrap, which easily attaches VIVE Trackers to your feet and other body parts to enable full body tracking. A pair of TrackStraps is available now for $24.99 via Rebuff Reality's website and includes a pack-in redemption code for Redfoot Bluefoot Dancing on Steam, inspired by Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) and Audioshield.

Dozens of developers have integrated body tracking into their experiences, including CloudGate Studios’ Island 359, which today launched a “Virtual Self” update that uses VIVE Trackers for full body tracking and movement.

Additional compatible titles include Climbey, Holodance, High Fidelity and more.

Note, the TrackStrap does not ship with a Tracker, so you’ll need to order directly from VIVE.

About This Hardware



VIVE is a first-of-its-kind virtual reality platform developed by HTC and Valve for total immersion in virtual worlds. Using a headset and wireless controllers in each hand, you can now explore and interact with VR experiences, apps and games that blur the line between imagination and reality.

Breathtaking visual experiences are provided by a headset that features a 110° field of view and 32 sensors for precise tracking for total immersion. The 2160 x 1200 resolution and 90 Hz refresh rate deliver detailed graphics and lifelike motion for smooth gameplay and realistic movement. Fluid interaction is provided by two wireless controllers, each with HD haptic feedback, dual-stage triggers, and multi-function trackpads. Each controller features 24 sensors for 360° one-to-one tracking that mirrors hand movements. Room-scale motion tracking is enabled by two base stations that sync wirelessly avoiding the need for additional cords.

Vive’s built-in convenience and safety features are seamlessly integrated for an uninterrupted experience. The Chaperone guidance system alerts you if you approach the boundaries of the play space, while a front-facing camera blends physical elements into the virtual world. These features, working in concert, allow Vive to transport users to worlds that are truly beyond the imagination. Discover Vive today, and see for yourself: THIS IS REAL.

Key features:
  • SteamVR Powered – Enjoy over 1500 games for SteamVR, plus everything you love about Steam, including new releases, automatic game updates and millions of your closest friends.
  • Fully immersive – Precise, 360-degree controller and headset tracking, realistic graphics, directional audio and HD haptic feedback mean realistic movement and actions in the virtual world. It doesn’t get more first-person than this.
  • Up to 15’ x 15’ room-scale stage to explore – Teleport around boundless virtual worlds sitting at your desk, or create a dedicated room-scale play area where you can physically walk around. SteamVR™ Tracking provides the best experience possible, so play the way that works for you – seated, standing or room-scale.
  • Play safer – The Chaperone system warns you about the boundaries of your play area, so you stay immersed in VR without worrying about the real-world. The front-facing camera also gives you a glimpse of the real-world – so you can sit down, grab a drink or carry on a conversation without taking off the headset.
  • Wireless controllers – two wireless, rechargeable controllers with dual stage triggers, trackpad and HD haptic feedback.
  • Phone Services – Answer incoming calls, check your text messages and view calendar event reminders as you play.
