Looks to me like the new controllers will give your hands less protection should you hit them against something. Big drawback!
The new design does serve a purpose: it's for better tracking.
Also, the controller is not supposed to protect your hand. Do you know what serves that purpose? Tidying your room 😉 .
I hope Oculus reads this. Why are your new controllers so ridiculous? I bought an oculus because I liked the circle to be around my hands so I can hold it with ease and use it more naturally. With the new design you guys have coming out the big O serves no purpose just like the vive controllers. Please make your controllers like you did before as they actually served a purpose and were useful.
