Matt N, and avid shooter, has built his own HTC VR gun controller, to create the dimensions of holding a shotgun- shown below. Color us impressed. He beat us to it. Here’s Matt’s review, posted on the CLAZER STEAM VR website:
“I am a true sporting clay/skeet enthusiast and have just recently acquired Clazer. When I got my Vive online the very first thing I looked for was a clay simulator but could only find arcade type target games. Then came Clazer! I found it very realistic and found teaching mode (shows an X where you missed the clay) very helpful.
It may be a bit easier than actual clay shooting, but it is close enough for good practice around site picture, lead, stance, holding point, breaking point etc. I cannot wait until I get the gun mounted controller and can use my real shotgun. I think with a weight of the real shotgun the difficulty level should definitely rise to realistic levels as well as cause fatigue from holding the weight of the gun like in real life. If we could only emulate the Kick 😉 (Matt – we can emulate kick, with blanks – and very carefully . . . )
Both opposing thumbs up on this simulator!!! Whether you are already an enthusiast and love clay shooting or just want to learn Clazer is for you!”
Needless to say, there is a Steam VR gun controller prototype beta test in Matt’s future – that Matt can mount on his own shotgun.
