    Does anyone know if the SDK allows the use of 2 controllers at the same time (one for each hand obviously)?
    Also is google going to sell these controllers independently from the headset?

    I would assume that replacements would be sold (they are bluetooth after all), but I haven't seen any demos where 2 controllers are working together.

    I still haven't really played around with the Daydream API, but apparently you simply access one controller. Haven't seen any enumeration device etc. If anyone has more to share, pls share:

    I doubt you'd be able to use two controllers at once, especially since most daydream software will only be designed for use with the one controller that ships with the unit. Would the phone even be able to distinguish which controller is which for two handed use?

    That should be easy to implement per application. Like an initial input setup "press button on left controller, now press button on right controller". Each BT device has a unique hash anyway. You simply enumerate the 2 in your code and it should be quite straightforward.
