HTC Vive Focus is a new stand-alone VR headset, this means there are no wires what so ever.
Some of the initial partners are companies including Quanta, Pimax, and Nubia. The headset is designed with visual elements taken from the PlayStation VR and HTC's Vive Deluxe Audio Strap and has a bright blue colour profile.
"You can essentially do most of the things that you could do on a high-end machine on a standalone", said HTC Vive's China President Alvin Wang Graylin (汪叢青).
What is HTC Vive Wave? "It's also a marker where fragmentation has occurred due to the lack of a leader open platform".
However, both of these are very interesting, especially if you're into the VR movement and haven't yet worked whether you want to put down for the massive investment that virtual reality can be.
The Vive Wave VR has been described as "Daydream for China", in reference to Google's VR platform Daydream.
In a press release accompanying the announcement, HTC revealed that it had already signed up 12 hardware partners which will all integrate the Vive Wave platform into their future products.
The Vive Wave VR SDK offers an open interface that enables interoperability between numerous mobile VR headsets and accessories, with Viveport as the content platform for compatible devices. As UploadVR points out, right now, the Vive Focus is only getting a release in China, but it could spread to the rest of the world at some point.
Going back to the Focus, one potential use case that intrigued me the most is that it can be hooked up to other HTC headsets - be it the Focus or even the original Vive - for social interaction. As such the Vive Focus is firmly cemented between mobile-powered VR and higher-end PC-powered headsets like its older sibling the HTC Vive VR. "China is a huge potential market and we have no plans to take Vive Wave outside of it at this time", Pao added.
In addition to providing 6DoF, the Vive Focus is not tethered to a computer, as a result, wearers will have increased mobility with the headset on.
