HTC announces its standalone Vive Focus headset but with light details and no release date. More soon. Can't wait for you to try it.
This would make sense as HTC had been planning on working with Google to make a VR headset based on the search giant's DaydreamVR platform, but it would appear that those plans have been cancelled and the Vive Focus happened instead. Until today, it was expected that HTC would have two different standalone headset, both powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835.
Separately, HTC has issued an invitation to VR and augmented-reality developers worldwide to participate in its Viveport Developer Awards, which are to recognize creativity and innovation in the field, as the company continues its efforts to build its own VR ecosystem.
The VR headset is also optimized by Vive Wave VR open platform where developers can add VR-ready content.
"Vive Wave is a clear step forward in bringing together the highly fragmented mobile VR market that has cropped up in China the last several years". Unfortunately, there isn't much else known about the headset right now.
But HTC's headset wasn't the only device in development: Lenovo is also building a standalone Daydream headset, and Bavor said he's "been using and loving" his Lenovo Daydream HMD.
The Vive Focus uses a somewhat simple-looking three-degrees-of-freedom controller with a similar trackpad to the larger Vive devices.
While the Vive Focus is a standalone device that is not connected to a computer or a smartphone, it has numerous same features as a high-tech machine, HTC said.
The headset will also benefit from access to a huge library of VR content through HTC's Viveport distribution portal. Additionally, the Taiwanese company has released its View Wave SDK to help third-party vendors integrate their accessories with the new hardware.
