HTC and Google scrap plans for Daydream VR headset

It is noted, for the work of the new VR-helmet from the NTS do not need to have a computer, smartphone or other gadgets, as paired with the motion controller. It features a high-resolution AMOLED screen and it is fueled by Snapdragon 835 chipset.

HTC want to remove the impression of standalone headsets that do not offer the complete breadth of experiences that a fully integrated VR headset can offer. The trackpad available on it is similar to the one found on the bigger Vive devices. Vive is calling this "world-scale" tracking, essentially giving the Vive Focus the ability to roam around without a fixed boundary.

HTC on Tuesday formally introduced its new standalone Vive Focus VR headset at the Vive Developers Conference (VDC) in Beijing. It also seems that HTC are looking to focus on the education market, which is interesting. The ultimate goal is to get PC games running on a VR headset wirelessly, but as I mentioned previously, getting content and a headset to the masses is of critical importance.

Hot on the heels of Oculus' recent announcement splurge - in which we were shown an affordable, standalone headset called Oculus Go - comes HTC's cord-cutting Vive Focus. The standalone headset can be used as-is and the company claims that the device will be a first of its kind innovation when it hits the market.

There is also no word on the actual release date or the price.

Immediately after confirming the HTC headset was dead, Bavor teased a Lenovo standalone headset, which was also announced at Google IO.
