I just want to inform you that there is a Kickstarter campaign starting tomorrow (25.10.17) @18:00 GMT
The VR Gladius, an ergonomic grip that fits the HTC VIVE wand controller.
There is a limited Centurion edition.
Get ready for Fallout VR, DOOM VFR, Skyrim….

A link to the kick starter page would be nice.
I support a lot of VR projects but this one seems like its created a problem that never existed.
I have never found the controllers needed an extra grip.
Also with the knuckles releasing at some point most wands will get replaced.
Nice to see you innovating

there are 12 functional prototypes. You can see the making of them here: https://youtu.be/_tmaYAl7iGs
The project will go live at 18:00 GMT, then the link will be created. I will post it here. Using the wand as a pointer I will agree with you but for shooter / sword games its like day and night for medium to large hands ~18 cm and up (hand length
index middle finger to hand base)

Thanks for sharing this! These look like these could be of real use to those who have larger hands or suffer from carpel tunnel and other repetitive strain injuries. You should consider sharing this with the Tiltbrush community.
