Today HTC Vive President China, Alvin Graylin Wang, had the honour to show the world its new VR headset at the HTC Developer Conference in Beijing. Even though the Taiwanese firm has officially introduced the Vive Focus VR headset, it has not disclosed its specifications. "Besides the introduction of the Vive Focus, also Vive Wave was introduced".
HTC has launched Vive Focus, its first standalone virtual reality headset for the Chinese market, at its Vive Developer Conference in Beijing. The trackpad available on it is similar to the one found on the bigger Vive devices.
The design of the Vive Focus is similar to Sony's PlayStation VR and HTC's Vive Deluxe Audio Strap. According to the official website, the Vive Focus is enabled with WorldSense feature which delivers six degrees of movement such as left, right, up, down, forwards and backwards.
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.
Also the game developer is satisfied with HTC's new developments.
Vive Wave allows developers to create content for a common platform and storefront across various hardware vendors, HTC said in a statement. However, availability of the Vive Focus is now unknown. However, as mentioned above, the company is silent on the release date and pricing. Spark of Light is available on the Vive Wave platform, and has been available on the Gear VR and on Google Daydream already. Google has confirmed that a standalone daydream headset by Lenovo will be heading towards the U.S.
