Oculus Touch Controllers (with sensor) - $84.48 + FS

Amazon has the Oculus Touch Controllers [amazon.com], which includes a camera sensor, for $85. If you recently got the oculus rift + touch bundle, this might be a good option to get a third sensor and have backup controllers. The sensor by itself is $60, and this is only $25 more.

You can't currently use more than 2 controllers at a time, but there's alpha support [reddit.com] for a third controller for developers to be used as a mixed reality camera. And having a second pair of controllers for $25 is a pretty good deal in case you ever damage a controller.

Note: The $60 sensor comes with a 15ft (5m) USB 2.0 active cable extender, but this touch bundle doesn't. However, if you need a longer cable or wish to get a USB 3.0 extender, you don't lose much getting the touch bundle.

For what it's worth, I didn't have to pay tax on this item. I usually pay tax for Amazon purchases (for example, the $60 sensor, which does charge tax), so it was a nice bonus. And free same-day shipping for Amazon Prime members.

Link is now fixed. I somehow copied a quote symbol onto the end; thanks for pointing out the broken link! :-)

Good deal. I just bought a second set as mentioned instead of a $60 3rd sensor.

Yes, backup for now. My wife already dropped the controllers once (trying to put them on a desk in the VR LMAO ) so we make sure to put the straps on. I thought for a little more backups would be worth it and as mentioned maybe future support.
