Enhance Your Virtual Golfing Experience with the Walkabout Grip-to-Putter VR Accessory
Elevate your virtual golf game with the innovative VR accessory developed by Mighty Coconut in partnership with Hello Real. This unique accessory, called the Walkabout Grip-to-Putter, is specifically designed for the popular VR mini golf game, Walkabout Mini Golf, which can be played on Meta Quest and Rift headsets.
The Walkabout Grip-to-Putter comes equipped with various features that aim to enhance your virtual golfing experience. It boasts an adjustable hardware trigger, a comfortable grip, a self-tensioning lanyard, and a swappable grip system. Additionally, each putter includes an in-game cosmetic to further personalize your gameplay.
As VR enthusiasts, we had the opportunity to test out this accessory prior to its release. After spending some time with the Walkabout Grip-to-Putter, we can confidently say that it is a fantastic addition for any avid VR golfer.
Easy Setup and Calibration
The Walkabout Grip-to-Putter is incredibly easy to set up. Simply slide your Touch or Touch Pro controllers into the dedicated holder. The provided instructions offer a detailed explanation on how to secure the controller to the putter using the lanyard and how to easily change grips.
To ensure accuracy in your swings, calibration is required. In the in-game settings of Walkabout Mini Golf, choose the “Custom Grip” option and select “Calibrate.” Then, hold the grip button and position your controller accordingly. Mighty Coconut has promised a dedicated option for the Walkabout Putter in future releases, making the calibration process even more streamlined.
Immersive Golfing Experience
Once the setup and calibration are complete, you’re ready to start putting. Right away, you’ll notice a significant improvement in your performance. The Walkabout Grip-to-Putter is designed with a dedicated weight that mimics the sensation of swinging a real putter. Additionally, the comfortable grip ensures that you can enjoy extended gaming sessions without worrying about blisters or discomfort.
One standout feature of the Walkabout Putter is the dedicated trigger, which allows for seamless interaction with the grip function on your Touch controller. By holding the grip button in Walkabout Mini Golf, your putter becomes transparent, enabling you to practice swings before making your final putt. This trigger will quickly become an essential aspect of your gameplay.
During my testing, I also noticed the impressive haptic feedback response of the device. As I navigated through exciting courses like “Laser Lair” and “Journey to the Center of the Earth,” I could feel the putter connecting with the virtual ball, replicating the sensation of a real ball strike. It’s these small attention to details that truly immerse you in the virtual golfing experience.
Overall, the Walkabout Grip-to-Putter is an exceptional VR accessory for those seeking to elevate their virtual golf skills. To learn more about this accessory or to make a purchase, visit helloreal.com/products/griptoputter.
