HTC Vive reveals standalone VR headset
Google’s Daydream platform has expanded to support standalone VR headsets, and HTC Vive will build one of the first devices compatible with the platform. The VR headset will not require a connected phone or PC to be used, as all the necessary hardware is built into the unit. Users will also be able to use the headset without connecting any cables, unlike the current HTC Vive headset – which requires multiple tethered connections to a PC.
The company said the standalone Vive VR headset will launch later this year.
