Virtual reality is set to make a splash this year, and one of the headsets at the forefront of this charge is the HTC Vive.
The Vive, developed by HTC and Valve, lets the wearer walk around their room to move around a virtual reality space, and uses motion tracked handheld controllers to interact with objects.
Aside from video games, of which there are known to be more than 100 coming to the platform, the HTC Vive will also include practical applications for healthcare, education, and even space applications used by NASA. But for most of us, being immersed in entertainment media will be enough and you can’t but say that the HTC Vive offers that in spades.
Watching someone use the HTC Vive only gives you so much insight into what the experience is like. But luckily, you can try it out for yourself ahead of its arrival on shelves at Harvey Norman in July.
The HTC Vive will be demoed in Harvey Norman Carrickmines on Friday and Saturday this week, allowing you to get up close to the headset and experience it for yourself. This is a great opportunity to try out a device that is sure to shake up how we enjoy some of our hobbies and potentially how we learn or work too.
Drop into Harvey Norman Carrickmines on Friday or Saturday to see what all the fuss is about for yourself.
