HTC and Valve are teaming up to make a new VR headset, simply called HTC Vive, both companies are promising the most immersive and most premium VR experience you will get. First impression you might get, the new headset will use the HTC smartphone as a VR screen, like the Gear VR does with the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy S6, but no ! there is no smartphone out there that can give you such a strong experience, the HTC Vive will be directly plugged to your PC, the device supports full room scale environments, which mean that the headset wearers will have to walk around the 3D objects.
Biside of gaming, the companies are trying to change the way you travel, shop and communicate, until now, there is no detailed explanation on how this product will work, also, the big question is, “What the hell is HTC doing in this partenership ?!“. Anyway, more info will be coming soon.
HTC and Vive will release a developer edition that will be available this spring, and for the majority of consumer, the HTC Vive VR headset will be available in the holidays.
