There are only two things most people don’t like about with the HTC VIVE. One is a lot of space is needed for the sensors. Two is the wire attachment to the computer. Now that the HTC VIVE goes wireless, one of those issues has been fixed.
The wireless add-on goes up for pre-order at 7am PT Friday (today), via Vive’s Chinese website, although quantities are said to be limited and priority will be given to existing customers with a valid Vive serial number (although there’s no restriction on international buyers beyond shipping cost).
It’s being priced at 1,499 RMB (~$220) plus shipping. Pre-orders will be fulfilled starting in Q1 2017.
