HTC introduced a virtual reality headset Vive Focus
The regiment HTC virtual reality headsets come. Today in the Vive Developer Conference event in Beijing, the Taiwanese manufacturer has finally introduced the world to the new VR-helmet, rumors of which surfaced throughout 2017. The headset is called Vive Focus and is a standalone device that does not need a PC or smart phone to run the application.
A nice advantage of the new device has become a built-in tracking the user's head position in space with six degrees of freedom. Manufacturer proudly called this system "tracking across the world." The user does not need any external sensors or cameras in order to read the smallest displacement slopes and a headset in space. You can use it even on a plane or train, where space is extremely limited, and the vehicle is in motion.
How to assure officials from HTC, this device is unique to the market even despite the fact that many other manufacturers have recently introduced such devices (including the Oculus, Lenovo and Acer). Independent headsets often suffer from a lack of applications and games, as well as an imbalance of iron, which greatly affects the quality of graphics and effects. The HTC believe that they managed to win both problems thanks to the official store software and powerful processor Snapdragon 835. The device is provided AMOLED-high resolution display and comfortable soft straps to hold the headset on the user's head. Another surprise was the fact that the helmet will be packaged with the controller movement having three degrees of freedom. writing software for a new headset has engaged 12 partners of HTC. To simplify the software development platform Taiwanese manufacturer introduced Vive Wave VR, through which anyone can write an application for a headset. The price of the new device is not reported, however, as the date of its receipt to the retail sale.
