Razer Hydra controller Actions
« on: March 26, 2014, 09:11:38 AM »
Hi!

There is a Razer Hydra plugin on the asset store:

https://www.assetstore.unity3d.com/#/content/7953

Using generic Get Property on their scripts doesn't really get you any important variables, like controller position, rotation etc. Also input from buttons is strange, it doesn't seem to change Unity Input at all (but Razer's demo works somehow).

Is it possible to look at this and make some Actions for Razer Hydra plugin?

Hi,

 I guess I would be more than ok to commit in providing full compatibility with this if you are ok with covering the costs of the hardware.

 Typically, I would think that like kickstarter, if several members are ok to participate to this, I'd be more than happy to handle this.

!!!! Coupled with the OVR, this is a killer!!!!

bye,

Awesome. I actually thought Hutong has the hardware or something :) Anyway, if somebody wants to participate in a group buy (like $20 from each) I would go for it. Or maybe it's better to wait for Stem controller? Hydra is kind of outdated and super hard to come by. I actually just borrowed mine...

Hi,

 Ok, let's make an experiment :)

 https://trello.com/c/nYQbN5eC/68-razer-hydra-or-stem-controller-playmaker-bridge

 I laid out some basic rules for this, feel free to comment and suggest the best approach, maybe going for a proper crowdfunding system could be better for everyone, I am ready to commit on this and register this project, if you have good recommandation for this.
