Why would anyone care what this looks like, you're not gonna see it with the headset on?

I would be more minimalists, would only need 4 buttons on the right control and 1 stick, and a stick and 1 track button on the left control
And it would have the steam controller gyroscope on each control, add precision to common games

And Valve could launch a console with this control

It would be legal for the control to have a tactile feedback
A simple humble (simple vibration) or a humble HD like the joy-con, another tatil system may be the steam controller (but it would be in the palm of the hand)

But I guess the old ones had inferior finger tracking. And that's why the new Knuckles are so bulky and need large overlaps/spikes. :mac:

Amylion is refering to the design of the controllers.
To be honest, I like the old knuckles style a lot more. But I haven't used any of them so I can't say which is the better controller in the end. I don't want thumbsticks but since this is the "way to go"..., many game developers will be using them, then let's just be it.

Valve has to get rid of this spike on the controller however. The old design didn't have any spike and was rounded a lot more. It was also thinner, more streamlined.
I wish I could have gotten the old ones.. :-P

A lot of the vive wands' overall layout seems like novelty for its own sake. Most of the buttons are too easy to press accidentally and the touchpad and grip buttons have an unsatisfying tactile feel. Normal thumbsticks and convex gamepad buttons are good, and accurate finger tracking and pressure sensors are meaningful improvements.

I'll have plenty of enjoyment staring at my futuristic vive wands on the shelf in between VR sessions with the knuckles controllers when they're released.

@Amylion, you have obviously never played with the Vive controllers, and then the Rift controllers, or you wouldn't be saying that. Since this looks more like the Rift controllers, which are superior.

The minimalistic Vive wands look like a piece from the future – but this gamepad style looks like something from the last decade.
