VR, or virtual reality, has all but become a buzzword in the homes of millions since the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive PC headsets landed in 2016.
For one, it’s the novelty of a term that’s been in the public consciousness for decades now finally coming to fruition.
However, if it weren’t for the high-power VR experiences made possible by these first tethered, PC-bound headsets, we wouldn’t be here talking about the VR craze.
Now, thanks to companies like DisplayLink, headset makers like HTC are catching up to the graphically-inferior (but mass appeal), wireless products with full-power wireless VR.
The HTC Vive Pro elevates this concept with even sharper screens and digital surround sound audio in addition to wireless signal transmission from a PC through DisplayLink.
“The endgame for us has always been to have wireless premium VR,” HTC Vive General Manager Daniel O’Brien says.
