HTC unveils its standalone VR headset the Vive Focus

HTC has finally unveiled its upcoming standalone VR headset at today’s Vive Developer Conference in Beijing. Dubbed the Vive Focus, this all-in-one device features inside-out 6-degree-of-freedom (6DoF) “world-scale” tracking, meaning it doesn’t require external base stations nor sensors, so you can get positional tracking anywhere at any time…

Everyone has one now. Oculus, Microsoft’s OEM partnered “Mixed Reality” (MR) sets and now HTC/Valve.

The Valve Focus is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and will have an AMOLED screen along with Valve’s Deluxe Audio Strap. Pricing and availability were not announced but to compete with Oculus’ “Go” headset of the same ilk expect it to arrive in the first half of the new year.
