HTC (Taiwan) develops new virtual reality headset with video game developer Valve

HTC continues its expansion from the smartphone market by teaming up with video game developer Valve, for a new virtual reality headset that will be the latest competitor to the Oculus Rift. The Vive features a 1,200 by 1,080 pixel screen for each eye and an astounding refresh rate of 90 frames per second, ensuring a crystal-clear, jitter-free image.

Powered by Valve’s upcoming StreamVR platform, the “Full Room Scale 360 Degree Solution” lets the user get up and walk around inside a virtual world for a fully immersive experience in spaces up to 15 by 15 feet.

Check out the video above for a better look at the visual experiences the headset has to offer, and expect the Vive VR headset to be available for purchase later on in the year.
