Iribe also confirmed that the Oculus Touch controller will offer room-scale movement, but you will need a sensor for that; these are priced at $80 and also go on sale on December 6.

The strange-looking, circular Touch is comprised of two controllers, one for each of your hands. Each has a traditional analog stick, two buttons, and an analog trigger, as well as haptic feedback and what Oculus calls the "hand trigger." Touch is also capable of tracking "a set of finger poses" that work to "recognize natural hand poses like pointing, waving, or giving a thumbs-up."

The Touch controllers were supposed to go on sale earlier, but were delayed at the end of 2015 to a release in the second half of 2016.
