Valve is yet to reveal any specific details about HTC Vive controller, but based on the images posted by Twitter user Daniel Blair, it seems that users will able to open their hands without dropping it. It is speculated that the controller will be track when the hands are open and will replicate hand movements and finger articulation with greater accuracy.
