When virtual reality first debuted, few people thought this technology had the potential to transform medical treatment and improve the human condition. Yet this is exactly how VR technology has evolved over the past couple of decades. Sure, VR is primarily used as a form of video game entertainment yet it is also boosting well-being.
When a company like HTC makes a virtual reality related release, it’s widely expected to be attached to the Vive brand. It makes marketing sense. It makes market share sense. It makes product awareness sense. But, it’s not how it’s happening on HTC’s newest headset called Link. Not branding it under the very recongnizable Vive umbrella is actually more perplexing that just marketing and consumer awareness.
Big news coming out of the Computex Taipei 2017 show in Taiwan from industry giant HTC and Intel. The two companies have announced a partnership to bring Intel’s WiGig wireless VR solution to the HTC Vive!
HTC is planning on manufacturing the WiGig wireless VR accessory, which is based on the 802.11ad standard.
