Some of the biggest tech leaks in history stem from prototypes being left behind by early testers and engineers.

Along with the heavily revamped headset, the included controller also appears to have been completely overhauled. The new design is slightly more compact, has a different button layout, and skips the light ring in Quests 1 and 2 to better hide the LEDs and sensors that Meta is using this time around.

It looks like they’ve also added a new angled flat spot for users’ thumbs, which I’m looking forward to testing personally. I’ve never found a comfortable place for that finger to land without accidentally pressing a button on the Quest 2 controller.

Finally, we can see small dents on the side of the controller that look like three metal contacts. Connectors like pogo pins could be good for add-on accessories such as new sensors or controller peripherals, if you use your imagination. Imagine, for example, a two-handed gunstock that can be connected to both controllers at once for a true his FPS-like experience, or a fishing rod grip that includes a built-in reel that can actually be cranked. Third-party accessory makers have been trying to create such products for years, but have been unsuccessful due to the lack of first-party support. Maybe that is about to change.
