HTC Vive wireless adapter officially unveiled
Along with the HTC Vive Pro announcement today, HTC’s Vive team also unveiled a wireless adapter for the original and new Vive Pro. The Vive wireless adapter uses Intel’s WiGig standard to deliver wireless videos and control feeds form the Vive to your computer, eliminating the massive bundle of wires which are currently needed when using the Vive.
HTC has yet to share pricing information for the Vive wireless adapter, but they did share that it will not ship until the summer of 2018. What was also missing from the announcement was HTC’s battery life estimate. With TPCast’s wireless adapter for the Vive lasting a little more than 2 hours, we expect HTC’s offering to match or exceed the 2-hour mark.
