After first being unveiled back in CES 2018 in January HTC has now been showcasing their new HTC Vive Pro virtual reality headset complete with the new Vive Wireless adapter providing a wireless way for users to engage in VR applications and games. At MWC 2018 this week HTC has been demonstrating the new Vive Pro wireless headset by offering attendees to MWC 2018 a hot air balloon ride experience, complete with wind fan and hot air balloon basket to add to the immersive effect.
As yet no availability or pricing has been announced for the new Vive Pro VR headset which will provide a higher resolution than the currently available HTC Vive virtual reality headset, together with larger room scale support. Once the headset is officially launched the HTC Vive Pro will offer users a resolution of 1,600 × 1,440 per-eye.
When using the new Vive Wireless adapter, the Vive Pro VR headset requires just two cables to function in the form of a short HDMI cable from the headset and a USB cable for power attached to the battery pack worn around your belt or simply slipped into your pocket. If you are to use the new Vive Wireless VR adapter with the original Vive, then four connections will be required three from the headset and one USB connection from the power pack.
As soon as more information is announced regards availability, specifications or pricing for the new HTC Vive Pro virtual reality headset or the Vive Wireless transmitter will keep you up-to-date as always.
