One of the most talked about products that came out of MWC back in March was the HTC Vive. It’s not quite a Samsung Gear VR since it doesn’t use a smartphone for graphics. The Vive is PC-powered and runs on a gaming platform called SteamVR.
A post on HTC’s official blog states that HTC plans to distribute 7,000 more developer kits in in 2016 followed by a commercial release in April. These are new second-generation developer kits that will be launched at CES in January.
HTC has been hard at work refining, tweaking, and improving the hardware and user experience of the HTC Vive. It has been working with companies in various industries to develop new content for entertainment, medical, educational and retail applications.
We are curious to see how far HTC can get with the Vive and whether it’ll be a change in the VR and/or gaming industry.
