A VR Keyboard Kit by Logitech to Type in Vive
5 November, 2017
News

Logitech is working on a VR accessory kit that will let users see keyboards inside VR. The project is called Logitech Bridge and it works with HTC’s Vive VR headset, using a Vive tracking disk, a Logitech G gaming keyboard, and an accessory to combine the parts. Hook the tracker to the keyboard and the software will position a 3D virtual keyboard model over the real one.

Logitech’s system will also allow VR fans to overlay custom keyboard layouts, replacing hotkeys or shortcuts with custom buttons. Bridge will work with any game or app that supports the Vive’s SteamVR software.

Some bad news here: limited availability and its price — the prototype would cost you $150. You would also have to buy a $99 tracker disk and the $599 HTC Vive. We’re not sure the system will match your gaming keyboard from some other company. Developers can apply for one of the 50 kits here until November 16th.
