YOU MAY BE INTRESTED IN THIS: What You Need to Know About Virtual Reality
"Since beginning pre-orders at the end of February and shipping in early April, we've seen incredible interest in Vive," said Dan O'Brien, VP of VR at HTC. "Working with our retail partners has only enhanced that momentum because more people are able to try the only truly immersive virtual reality offering on the market today."
Vive is a first-of-its kind virtual reality system developed in partnership by HTC and Valve, priced at $799 ($1,149 CAD). Vive was designed from the ground up for room-scale VR, allowing true-to-life interactions and experiences thanks to an adjustable headset displaying stunning graphics, two wireless controllers with HD haptic feedback and 360˚ absolute motion tracking. For a convenient and safe experience, Vive incorporates essential functionality from your phone and features a front-facing camera that blends physical elements into the virtual world. Working in concert, this system immerses you visually, physically and emotionally in the virtual world.
With more than 200 VR offerings now available on Steam, Vive owners have a wide selection of virtual reality content to choose from that will yield hours upon hours of VR fun.
