Third-party peripherals for the Vive

Valve is announcing a program to help support third party developers allowing people to develop their own tracked controllers and peripherals that can work with the Lighthouse system.   I think this is a great move that will kick off even more innovation and technical solutions for improving the overall VR experience and capabilities.   From a hardware perspective, Valve developed the Vive headset to be ‘hackable’ and extensible by design by putting together a modular system where the headstraps, cables can be easily replaced and extra USB ports are available to add on new peripheral capability.
