Details about hardware virtual reality headset HTC Vive

The company has carried created in collaboration with Valve virtual reality headset to a series of devices RE Vive , which are not related to smartphones and tablets – for example, the same series of concerns and is protected camera RE, which is shaped like the top part of the periscope. Colleagues from the site Fudzilla managed to learn from representatives HTC additional details about this device, which made its debut in the consumer market will be held not earlier than the end of the year, as well as his samples will only be used by developers.

First of all, to work with a headset need a desktop computer with a video card is not lower than GeForce GTX 960, and in the future and supports graphics solutions Series AMD Radeon R9 390X (Fiji). To a computer headset will connect with standard interface cables, so that the user will be put on the kind of leash. But an optical sensor to its 70 sensors will determine the position of the user’s head and his hands will be structurally separated from the headset. For design, two sensors with their own batteries will need to be installed in two corners of the room, which will be conducted experiments on immersion in virtual reality. Accordingly, the battery life of these sensors will determine the maximum duration of working with HTC RE Vive – provided that the user does not “seasick” before, although this effect engineers promise to be minimized.

Since the samples HTC RE Vive get to game developers already this semester, the impressions they probably will share immediately. Consumers will have to wait until the end of this year to become personally acquainted with this product.
