The final version of the system will include new base stations that are quieter and smaller than in previous versions. The base stations just need a power source, and can wirelessly connect, eliminating the need for a wire attached to the PC.
The wireless controller includes a touch sensor on the top for navigation, as well as a trigger to "grip" things in the virtual reality world or fire a virtual gun.
The Vive system comes with a front-facing camera to detect what's in front of you, as well as a microphone to let you make and receive calls.
Changes include a more polished finish and changes to the strap for better comfort.
Unlike the Oculus Rift, the Vive will come with two wireless controllers. HTC and Valve say they're critical to the consumer experience and for developers building consistent games.
After years of development and preproduction units, HTC and Valve finally unveiled the consumer version of their Vive virtual reality system. The whole shebang will cost $799 (£689).
The Vive will have serious competition with the Oculus Rift, which starts to ship on March 28.
