Bumper Cars for Motion Controllers
The HTC Vive can put the player in rather intense moments where quick reflexes make all the difference. The Protective Frame and Silicon Case by MDW is a simple design that provides the user with a way to defend your HTC Vive Motion Controllers from being damaged by bumping them into walls, accidental drops, and most of all from banging them together!
Protective Frame – Full Review
The cage that is included is installed rather easily and lines up with the tracking sensors on the Motion Controllers nicely. Instaling the included rubber sleeves was also easy. During testing, there were no noticeable issues with tracking while using the Protective Frame and Silicon Case by MDW. Knocking the controllers together on purpose definitely gives a feeling of durability.
However, it would be nice to see a material that also was not hard plastic, as the damage prevented to the controllers will be passed on to anything else it strikes. The harder plastic also tends to not absorb the shock of an impact as much as desired. The included rubber sleeves seemed to slide around a bit on the grip of the Motion Controllers, and this was enough to cause it to be taken off, leaving just the hard plastic cage on our controllers.
