Even if we still away from using VR headsets and the idea is still strange to most of the people, companies are constantly working on making an evolution on the virtual reality world.

TrinityVR is a startup that came with an interesting product to be used with the Oculus Rift headset, it is called the Trinity Magnum and it is in the form of a gun. The Trinity Magnum will act instead of a mouse in the computer, it will be used as a gun or a joystick in video games, because a normal mouse will not give you a full VR experience.

The co-founder of TrinityVR said: "What drove us to this solution, being early adopters of the Oculus Rift, was I was trying to play shooters like Half-Life 2 and Team Fortress 2 in VR. I would have my hands on the mouse and keyboard, and I'd lose the concept of where all these keys were. It was very clumsy, and I kept knocking things over".

The Magnum controller is a two hand device based on your hands motion, it contains a light-up silicon bulb that will make it tracked by the VR headset camera, it also contains a trigger, joystick and several buttons to make it usable with other gaming devices like the Xbox 360.

The Magnum controller will be available for shipment in December, and it will cost you $99 if you want to get it !
