Logitech Seeks Developers To Progress VR Keyboard

This kit consists of a Logitech G gaming keyboard, an accessory that positions a Vive Tracker correctly on the keyboard, and the associated software.

The Logitech Bridge is HTC and Logitech's way to bring a real typing experience into the virtual reality space, even improving on it by way of customizations. Users will see the keyboard and their hands in the virtual world during use.

Logitech has priced the kit at $150 (around £115, AU$195), but note that at this point, the company is still testing the solution, and only supplying it to a limited number of developers (50 devs to begin with - applications to be involved close on November 16).

The keyboard and the user's hands are monitored by the Vive tracker and a mirror of the device is rendered real-time in virtual reality. And it works across the entire Steam VR system. This Keyboard will offer fully real and natural Keyboard experience in your Virtual Reality world.

If you had a chance to explore any of the VR platforms available in the market right now, you must have noticed that using keyboard in VR for text entry is a hard and uncomfortable experience.

Why Go With A VR Keyboard?

It can measure your hands movements and the words you type trough the Virtual Reality Keyboard. However, the downside of Bridge SDK is not compatible with other company's keyboard, means if you don't like Logitech's keyboard or own a very nice gaming laptop, you're out of luck. The BRIDGE SDK lets you have a custom-made keyboard.

"Our motivation comes from the research-backed understanding that in certain situations the user still needs a keyboard to interact with applications, particularly in productivity-driven or desktop scenarios, but also in games, social applications and content browsing", Vincent Tucker, Innovations and Strategy director at Logitech, writes.
