Tundra Labs revealed the Tundra Trackers, an alternative to HTC's Vive Tracker hardware, late last year. Tundra Trackers a smaller and lighter than even HTC's newly revised Vive Tracker 3.0. These smaller trackers also sip less power than Vive Trackers, giving them longer battery life to the tune of up to 7-hours of use between charges.

The appetite for Tundra Labs' tiny tracking pucks is significant. The company was looking for $250,000 to fund the manufacturing of the hardware. The Kickstarter campaign secured pledges for more than $500,000 from backers in less than six hours.

Tundra Labs is offering the basic Tundra Tracker, which does not include a receiver dongle, for $95. For $130, you get a Tundra Tracker, a USB wireless dongle that supports three devices, a 1m extension cable, and a foot/elbow strap. The kit also includes a storage case. Tundra Labs is also selling kits with 3, 5, or 7 trackers. The larger bundles include elbow/feet and waistband straps and USB dongles with enough receivers for each device.

Alternatively, if you already own enough Vive Trackers for body tracking, you can purchase Tundra Labs Super Wireless Dongles to get rid of some of those Vive wireless dongles. The SW3 sells for $42, SW5 goes for $60, and SW7 is $80.
