About HTC VIVE
The HTC Vive is a VR headset developed by HTC and Valve Corporation. The headset uses a "room scale" tracking technology which allows users to move in 3D space and use motion-tracked handheld controllers to interact with the environment. On March 2015, at the HTC Mobile World Congress, The HTC Vive was unveiled. The kits were sent out in August and September 2015, and the first Consumer version of the device was released on April 5th, 2016.
It has a soft foam inserted and can be adjustable straps to get the fit right. You can also wear it comfortably with different shaped heads which is a good feature added to virtual headset because it will be more comfortable using it that way. You can even wear your glasses thanks to the slotted spaces for specs. The weight of the headset, with the straps and faceplate, is also not noticeable after two hours of using it. The Vive has two features the 1080 x 1200 screens with 90fps refresh rates and a taller than usual 9:5 ratio which expands how far up and down you can look without moving your head. The headset of Vive is a comfortable experience that you will ever have once you use it.
The resolution really is superb. Stepping into Vive world is breathtaking. You might even forget that you are inside a virtual world. If you look far away from objects the image looks crisp and clean but as you lean in closer or pick things up to observe them better, it becomes less life-like as the pixels are smoothed out. There have been complaints on Virtual headsets, where you can see the lines separating pixels on HMDs, but not on HTC Vive though you might notice slight stuttering here and there through fast movements.
It has solid controller sticks that are quite large when compared to other controllers. There's no finger tracking that lets you do a thumbs up or get really grabby. It is can be wireless and it can also be battery operated, the controls include a dual stage trigger button under each forefinger, a home button and a similar, textured circular touchpad as before. If you have small hands you may have a hard time using the apps which require you to swipe across the touchpad. It has surprisingly had a long life out. Even after using it for two to four hours over three days, that is the only time it needs to be recharged. The battery lasted six to seven hours, which is a little longer than the four hours promised. Although there's no indicator of low battery life while playing, the controller will simply stop working.
