A look at the final form of the consumer-ready version of HTC and Valve's Vive VR, coming this April.
The HTC Vive finally arrives in April, but preorders are starting on February 29. It's expensive: $799. But you get a lot for your money.
The Vive headset has its own built-in camera which can help see things for you while you're in VR.
The Vive $799 kit also includes two wireless game controllers and two room-sensor boxes; early preorders also include two free games.
Luke Westaway models the new Vive headset, which has better-feeling straps for more comfort.
There are 32 headset sensors, but the headset needs to be tethered to your PC (like all PC VR kits).
Improved visuals and a comfy but light-blocking seal makes for serious immersion.
A look at the new straps on the final Vive headset.
A small box to connect with headphones, USB peripherals and HDMI.
Two included base stations are put in the corners of your room, tracking your headset and the Vive controllers.
The Vive controllers are great, combining haptic feedback, a sensitive touchpad, motion controls and triggers.
A look at the strap design and how it now fits. You're going to want to spend some time playing games in this, ideally without any discomfort. More to come when we get one!
