Motion Controls for Oculus Rift Development Kit 2 (supported or not) and 3rd party motion controls

I want to know if the oculus rift motion controllers will be compatible with the DK 2 or not. I also wish to know if 3rd party motion controllers (assuming technologically it is capable that is) will be supported as well or will allow you to easily use them with the rift. It would be nice if this is the case but if not I think I'll manage just fine brute forcing it to work. Regardless, waiting for a positive answer.

    Touch controllers only work with the consumer Rift.

  • I have no problem opening up a headset and mucking around with things. Soldering hasn't ever been a very big concern for me. I'll have to consider my options but thanks for the general input. Who knows, I may either find or create a guide for making motion controls on the DK 2 work.

    Why not go with LeapMotion? They work great (ok not with Touch Games, but to get the feeling of VR they're awesome)and are a nice substitution for motion controllers till you get the next Gen of VR gear.

    sixense going to simulate the vive controllers/touch on the Hydra and Stem so these should work fine. Problem is Oculus which will not support the DK2
