Virtual reality still feels a bit too virtual, and Sixense aims to change that. Its new Stem System does away with the traditional controller in place of a tracking system that follows up to five body parts or peripherals using sensors that can be swapped between them. While the Steam uses strangely shaped handles that wrap around all the way around your hand, they still rely on normal gaming conventions — from a joystick to a trigger to A, B, X, and Y buttons — to help you perform major functions.
