Mapped HTC Vive Keyboard and Mouse


Recommended Posts

Hello HTC and its users, this is more of an idea, but I would also like to see what do you think of an idea for this and why it would or not work.


I must say that my biggest issue that I have with the initial generation of VR is the lack of mapping for a mouse and/or Keyboard. If HTC Released a compatible Keyboard and mouse that used the same tracking technology as the goggles or the controllers: Bam. I can use both in virtual desktop and environments to do my work. All of a sudden a sea of software that used to be available only on Desktop can also be implemented in virtual environments.  I am talking design and creative applications such as Photoshop, Maya, 3d Max, Zbrush, etc...

Last and this is just an idea. Imagine if there was also a way for the HTC to detect the Wacom tablet... there you go, you do not need a Cintiq anymore.... These, however, are just ideas. Might not work in practice.... Still cool to think the plausibilities.


What do you guys think? Do you think it's a clever idea or it might not work? I find although these controllers really cool and VR amazing, it actually makes me step away from being productive in my conventional programs, I really wished I could actually work in VR. Take the notion away of needed physical screens at all and be able to have a desktop that only has my keyboard, the mouse and the goggles in X amount of years, of course when they have a number of iterations where their resolution has been increased exponentially a few times.

You can use the Lightroom software on your mobile device too. Now it's available on smartphone too. Before it was only available to Desktop users. You can try different features like web galleries, sharing edits with others, different capture modes like HDR, RAW, etc. You will not need mouse and keyboard if you are using Lightroom MOD APK.
