HTC has presented a VR-helmet with 6 levels of freedom

HTC cancelled its launch of wireless VR headset with google

In May, HTC unveiled some information about its wireless VR headsets which means there is a possibility of experiencing VR anywhere, even on a plane.

On Tuesday, HTC also unveiled Vive Wave, a VR open platform and toolset that is created to promote the development of mobile VR by reducing the time and effort needed to transform PC VR content into those suitable for mobile devices.

According to official representatives of the Taiwanese Corporation HTC Vive virtual reality helmet Focus is the first commercial standalone appliances, can track motion with 6 degrees of freedom.

There is no need to set up sensors when using the headset.

While acknowledging that sales of standalone VR devices in China have been lower than expected, Wang said that the weak demand was resulting from a lack of content and immerse experiences.

For some time, they said that the project will consistently happen, but now it seems like entire project has been cancelled.

The Vive Focus is created to appeal to a mass market audience as it does not need a PC or smartphone to function, according to Alvin Wang Graylin, president HTC Vive China.

Airbus wins biggest jet order from Indigo Partners
Emirates now relies exclusively on the Airbus 380 and the Boeing 777 for its flights, making it the largest operator of both. The Indigo Partners deal is the single largest order by number of aircraft that any individual plane maker has received.

The platform also features an open interface enabling interoperability among numerous mobile VR headsets and accessories, Pao added.

The new device came after Google said in September that it would buy part of HTC's smartphone team for $1.1 billion, which gives the latter abundant capital to up the ante in VR.

In November 2016, HTC was forced to drop the price of their Vive VR system from $799 to $599 after Oculus drastically cut down the price of its product having same capability VR system from $798 to $399.

There aren't many other options for HTC which has done a poor job of becoming a platform company in the USA instead of being first-to-market.

Taiwan-based HTC Corp unveiled a premium standalone virtual reality headset for the mainland market on Tuesday, as part of its broad efforts to target young consumers with a more affordable device.

HTC announced details of its Vive Wave platform at this week's developers conference, describing it as an open platform and toolset that will enable easy mobile VR content development and device optimisation for third party partners.
