We recently published a guide that offered our readers a glimpse into which Oculus Rift tracking and positional tracking options to buy, which of the VR head-tracking devices are worth the cash, and what to expect from the company’s latest hardware and software updates.
With that guide, we’ve compiled a list of the top positional tracking tracking options and hand tracking options available on the Oculus VR headset, which we’re calling the HTC Vive.
But we’ve also included some caveats and tips in the process to make sure you’re comfortable with each of the options before you jump into a game or play.1.
Head-tracking With positional tracking on the HTC Rift, you can position your body in all sorts of different ways.
The HTC Vive uses a head-mounted camera and an accelerometer to track your head’s position and orientation in three dimensions, and it can track your hand as well.
As with any motion tracking device, it’s possible to lose tracking when your hand moves.
This is especially true for people with severe injuries or those with disabilities.
You can use the HTC VR headset to determine if your hand is too low, too high, or too far away from your body, and you can use that information to adjust your head position and head tilt to help you control your virtual hand.2.
Hands-free VR In addition to using the HTC virtual hand, you’ll also be able to use the Vive’s headset and controllers to control the virtual hand and virtual hand controllers.
You’ll be able use the virtual hands and controllers with the HTC headset and Oculus Touch controllers, and both controllers can be controlled with a mouse and keyboard.3.
Head and shoulder tracking In addition, the HTC and Oculus headsets offer a variety of positional tracking features to help players and spectators better track their hands and feet in virtual environments.
For example, you won’t have to worry about your hands or feet touching as you move around a virtual environment, but you’ll be tracking them with the virtual tracking system instead.

Hands tracking using a camera The HTC and the Oculus headsets can also support both hands-tracking and hand and body tracking using cameras mounted on the headset.
You don’t need a head tracking headset to use this feature, and neither do you need to use your hands to control any virtual hands or controllers.5.
Oculus Touch and HTC Vive Touch Both of the HTC headsets and Oculus Rift offer hand tracking and virtual hands support.
The Oculus Touch headset uses a virtual hand controller, while the HTC’s Touch controller is compatible with both hand tracking headsets.6.
Oculus Rift is more accurate than its competitors With positional and hand track tracking, Oculus Rift offers the most accurate tracking experience on the market.
The Vive’s virtual hand tracking is only as accurate as the tracking sensors on the Vive, and the Rift doesn’t have positional tracking.
The Rift’s tracking is a bit better than the Oculus Touch’s tracking.
But the Oculus and HTC VR headsets offer similar positional tracking performance.7.
The VR headset does not have positional or hand tracking support.
That’s because the Oculus virtual hand is not compatible with Oculus Touch, and Oculus VR doesn’t support positional tracking with HTC’s Oculus Touch.8.
Oculus doesn’t offer positional tracking support with HTC Touch, so it’s not as accurate in VR.
The headset does support hand tracking on HTC’s HTC Touch controllers.9.
HTC’s Vive headset does have positional and hands tracking support, and if you want to use Oculus Touch or Vive Touch controllers with a VR headset then it’s better to use a head and shoulder-tracking headset instead of a positional tracking headset.10.
HTC does not offer hand and/or head tracking support for the Oculus platform, but Oculus does offer hand, hand and head tracking for both HTC and Vive.11.
HTC and HTC both have positional trackers that are compatible with all three Rift systems.
But if you plan to buy a VR head or hand tracker for your VR headset or your Vive, you should buy the HTC version of the headset and use a tracking headset instead.12.
The latest HTC and Samsung VR headsets have a new feature called “Tracked Hand” that allows users to track their hand and feet with their virtual hands.
This feature requires a head tracker that is mounted on your headset and controller, which can be mounted on a separate attachment to the headset or controller.13.
HTC doesn’t officially support tracking with Oculus controllers, but the company has provided guidelines for tracking with controllers on the GearVR.
If you’re using a GearVR controller, it can work with any Rift headset, including the HTC.14.
If using a Oculus controller, Oculus VR requires you to use its head tracking system for tracking, and HTC recommends the Oculus version of its headset for tracking.15.
If tracking is not your thing, you may want to consider using a positional tracker.
