In China, VR Using HTC Vive Doesn't Need a PC Anymore

A partnership with Dalian Television and Beijing Cyber Cloud means consumers only need a Vive, not a PC to hook it up to. [Read More]

Summary… * Machine-Made


As Engadget reports, HTC China announced a new partnership with Dalian Television and Beijing Cyber Cloud.
What that allows is for the HTC Vive to be connected to a set top box and the #VR experience streamed over the Internet.
If you want to own the Vive, that will cost $1,055 and includes one year of access to streamed #VR.
By streaming #VR content, some latency is to be expected, but HTC's China President Alvin Wang Graylin says not enough to ruin the experience.
If streaming #VR proves popular, you can bet it will be experimented with in the US.

Opinion… * Man-Made


Will #VR headsets simply be connected to a set top box, while content is streamed? #Trend
