HTC reveals Vive Focus, a VR headset that cuts the cables

HTC Vive Focus standalone VR headset eliminates wires

The Vive Focus hasn't been given any official launch date or pricing, but it's safe to assume it will be available in China before going global. According to Graylin, China's standalone VR market's revenue share grew from 5 percent to a whopping 24 percent in Q3 alone, while mobile VR still has 50 percent revenue share in the same region, so he believes that developers around the world will want to take advantage of Vive Wave to tackle both markets.

HTC is striving to prevent this scenario by offering a unified solution that supports a wide range of hardware. The other thing worth mentioning is the fact that it definitely looks quite bulk (due to the tech being inside). As previously announced, the Vive Focus runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip and uses inside-out positional tracking.

The objective of Vive Wave was to provide a unified interface and set of tools for developers to provide content for the HTC Vive Focus, as well as other mobile virtual reality (VR) devices. Choice is great, of course, but when each device has its own content platform, it's hard for developers to support all systems, paving the way for one platform to dominate. Oculus revealed last month something similar with its Oculus Go stand-alone VR headset, which is also powered by a Qualcomm processor. Therefore it seems likely that those companies intent to integrate Vive Wave into their hardware. HTC said that the no-hassle publishing system would support Viveport for PC VR and mobile VR content. Also announced today is the Vive Wave VR open platform, which is basically Daydream for China with 12 hardware partners already signed up, including Quanta, Pimax, Nubia, iQIYI and more. The company said that it handed out 500 priority vouchers to developers who were present at VDC 2017. At the time, the details were scarce, but now the company has revealed more details about the Vive Focus. It is the first standalone six-degrees-of-freedom VR headset to see the light of day. He managed to destroy a few more desktops and phones until he was sent to England for school.
