HTC has unveiled a virtual reality headset Vive Focus

In the shelf VR headsets HTC arrived. Today in the event Vive Developer Conference in Beijing, the Taiwanese manufacturer has finally introduced the world to a new VR helmet on, rumors of which surfaced throughout 2017. Headset called the Vive and Focus is an independent device that is to run applications do not need a personal computer or smartphone.

A Nice advantage of the new device was the built-in system for tracking the user's head position in space with six degrees of freedom. The manufacturer proudly calls this "tracking the entire world". The user does not need any external sensors or cameras in order to read the slightest tilts and movements of the headset in space. You can use it even on the plane or train where space is extremely limited, and the vehicle is in motion.

As the official claim of the representatives of HTC, this device is unique to the market despite the fact that many other manufacturers not so long ago presented a similar device (including , ). Independent sets often suffer from a lack of apps and games, as well as the imbalance of iron, which strongly affects the quality of graphics and effects. HTC believe that they managed to defeat both problems thanks to the official store of software and a powerful Snapdragon processor 835.

The Device is equipped with AMOLED high-resolution display and comfortable soft straps to hold the headset on the user's head. Another surprise was the fact that the helmet will come with a motion controller having three degrees of freedom. Writing software for the new headsets already involved 12 partners of HTC. To simplify the development of software, the Taiwanese manufacturer introduced the Vive VR Wave, thanks to which anyone can write an app for the headset. The price of the new device have not yet been reported, however, as the date of its receipt in the retail sale.
