Allows the support of stereoscopic 3D.
Uses inside-out tracking for room-scale motion tracking and tracking of controllers.
The Windows Mixed Reality Motion Controllers come with each headset, and are manufactured by each headset manufacturer independently as to Microsoft's exact hardware design and spec. this causes some controllers are higher quality than other controllers, depending on who manufactured them. the Samsung HMD Odyssey controllers are said to be the best quality.
Each controller features a trigger, touchpad, analogue stick, a menu button and a system button. they are tracked via the headset's inside out positional tracking cameras.
When the controllers leave the headset's positional camera's FOV, they are no longer tracked, but do still use gyroscope and accelerometer information to estimate the controller's position.
