Tundra VR Demolishes Kickstarter Goal for Trackers

Tundra, the third party creator of VR trackers for PC VR headsets, has demolished its Kickstarter goal in only a few hours. Within four hours after launch, the Trackers have raised over $550,000 over its goal of $250,000. You can back the Tundra Tracker on Kickstarter until the end of May by clicking here.

What are the Tundra Trackers?

Tundra Trackers are alternatives to the HTC Vive Tracker. They are smaller, sleeker & better in a few different ways:

  • They only weigh 50 grams
  • They have a size of 50.2 x 50.2 x 38.5 (millimeters)
  • 7 hours of battery life
  • Better base mounting

and a lot more. A lot of VR fans have been waiting for an alternative to the Vive tracker. Tundra destroying their Kickstarter goal price is confirmation that the demand is real.

Tundra USB Dongle

Tundra ships with an optional USB dongle which allows trackers to communicate wirelessly with your VR headset. Three different dongles are available:

  • SW3 Dongle – capable of simultaneously connecting to a maximum of 3 devices
  • SW5 Dongle – maximum of 5 devices
  • SW7 Dongle – maximum of 7 devices

If you don’t have a dongle, your VR headset can connect to two trackers at a time. The USB stick allows you to connect up to 7 trackers at a single time!
