Tactile control specialist TG0 has unveiled etee, a groundbreaking new VR controller delivering more mesmerising VR experiences through patented finger sensing technology.

With etee, VR gamers can immerse themselves in new worlds using all of their fingers simultaneously. Unlike other controllers, etee allows gamers to control their VR experiences via a full spectrum of movements such as proximity, touch, gesture and pressure.

etee controllers are wireless, lightweight, durable and designed to be worn on the hand for long periods. An ergonomic form, patented technology and long lasting battery make it the ideal controller for scenarios including VR and AR and conventional gaming, drone flying, home device activation and multiple Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

TG0 will be selling etee controllers for the first time during a one-month Kickstarter campaign launching on April 2nd. The page is now live at:

“VR games need a controller that moves beyond the stale, TV remote-like devices that are prevalent today,” said etee designer Mick Lin.

“etee takes us away from binary button commands into a new world of gesture, grip and touch-based controls. It delivers richer, more mesmerising interactions: the experience gamers deserve.”

While VR and AR gaming and training has advanced massively in a short period of time, existing controllers have retained an old-fashioned button-led design that has barely evolved from the games controllers of yesteryear.

Unlike legacy controllers, etee delivers on:

Full finger sensing and gestural control
Lightweight - 120g for the SteamVR version makes it the lightest VR controller
Easy to put on and take off
Sweat, dust and water-proof for improved hygiene and reliability
Long battery life (16 hours standby, up to 6h active)
Thumb trackpad to simulate joystick
Ergonomic, intuitive design
Proximity, touch, gesture and pressure sensing
No buttons for a more natural experience
Simplified product user interface

Designed to be as cosy and comfortable as a cardigan, etee hugs the hands and allows users to forget they’re even wearing a controller. etee is easy to slip on and off in seconds and a simple cylindrical shape couples freeform design with robust sensing. The end result for users is a controller they can wear rather than hold, and a more engaging, fully-realised experience no matter what the end application.

Jakub Kamecki, etee’s Head of Business Development, said: “I’ve never seen someone pick up an etee controller and fail to be wowed."

“We want to share this technology and to build a community, not only of gamers but of developers, innovators and inventors.”

etee controllers are equipped with:

Thumb trackpad
Free hand design
Open palm gesture sensing for all fingers
RGB colour LED
State-of-the-art haptic feedback
USB Type C ports
Bluetooth and WiFi communication

Full technical specifications are available on request. Interested parties can stay updated by following the etee Kickstarter campaign at

Jakub said: “We’ve felt for a long time that etee is the future of VR control. Now we’re going to make it so.”
