The Logitech MX Ink is a tracked stylus for the Meta Quest

Logitech MX Ink is a tracked stylus for Meta Quest headsets.

The MX Ink will support Quest 2 and Quest 3 and will be the first officially supported tracker accessory for Oculus or Meta headsets.

Logitech MX Ink is designed for 2D drawing on a physical surface via its pressure-sensitive tip and for 3D creativity via full 6DoF positional tracking (via headset cameras), multiple buttons, and a haptic feedback trigger.

It pairs with the headset without having to unpair the Touch controllers, which Meta says marks the first time a Quest headset has been able to track three controllers simultaneously. This means you can mix and match between Touch and MX Ink controllers and switch between them at any time “without interruption”.

When first paired, the Meta says you’ll be taken through a personalized tutorial built into the Quest’s system software, and a new section of the headset’s settings will allow customizing the pressure curves of the pin and primary buttons, initial activation force, and double-click timing.

The MX Ink itself charges via USB-C, and Logitech will sell a dock called the MX Inkwell for more convenient charging.

The company will also offer a mat with a “soft texture that pairs nicely with the grain of the box” for 2D creativity called the MX Mat.

MX Ink will be supported in the following Quest apps:

In addition, MX Ink will be supported in Adobe Substance Modeler and Elucis by RealizeMedicalPC VR apps can be used via Quest Link/Air Link.

Logitech will soon make an SDK available for other developers to integrate.

The Logitech MX Ink is scheduled to launch at the end of September at a price of $130. Pricing for the MX Inkwell and MX Mat platforms has not yet been revealed.

Apple is said to be testing Apple Pencil Pro support for the Vision Pro, and if that happens it could be the perfect accessory for the headset. But unless that happens before late September, it looks like the Meta will get there first through this partnership with Logitech.
