HTC VIVE - VIRTUAL REALITY; BEYOND IMAGINATION

HTC Vive…These high end virtual reality glasses were developed by SteveVR, a subsidiary of Valve. HTC is one of the most important technology companies in the world and HTC Vive developed in partnership with Valve.

 

HTC Vive is among the high end virtual reality glasses today. Valve and HTC introduced the Vive at the Mobile World Congress in 2015. HTC Vive is the only brand which can compare with its rival Oculus Rift.

 

HTC Vive can detect body movements. The Vive offers a resolution of 2160 x 1200 pixels and also the possibility of a 90Hz upgrade, just like the Oculus Rift. Included in the box with the Vive are three cables. One of these is the power cable for the glass, the second connects your computer to the HDMI port, and the third connects your computer to the USB port.

 

HTC Vive provides base station data transfer over wireless networks. HTC Vive supports Android and iOS. HTC Vive Phone Services allows you to see notifications and messages on your phone when you are using the glasses with this special software. As you experience virtual reality, the HTC Vive Phone Services application offers that you do not have to leave your experience at every interruption.

HTC Vive is attached to your head with velcro straps that go around your head and across its top.

 

One of the biggest advantages of the glasses is that they integrate your body movements into the virtual world. With the base stations placed in the corners of the room, the game follows your actual movements - when you bend down you also bend down in the game, and when you turn on your side, the same thing happens in the game. With the controller in your hand, movement can be detected in real time on your hands.

 

In addition, the game gloves which are developed by Manus VR for HTC Vive, detect your hand and arm movements. The control gloves are still being developed but are expected to be available by the end of 2016.  

 

You will need a computer with a high-end graphics card to use the HTC Vive. To run the HTC Vive on your computer, it must have the minimum specifications listed below. Make sure your computer is ready for Vive.

*Graphics Card: Minimum: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 / AMD Radeon R9 290 or*higher models

*Processor: Minimum Intel i5-4590 / AMD FX 8350 higher models

*RAM: 4GB and over

*Video Output: HDMI 1.4

*USB Output: 1 USB 2.0 or USB 3.0

*Operating System: Windows 7 SP1 or higher Windows Version

 

You can find out here on YouTube if your computer is capable of running HTC Vive by downloading the test tool from http://store.steampowered.com/app/323910.

Companies like MSI, DELL and HP are starting to create computers that support HTC Vive.  

Inside the HTC Vive box there are glasses, control levers, base stations and booklets for installation, and connection cables. 

When you are technically ready to live the HTC Vive experience, you need to place the base stations in every corner of your room. HTC Vive base stations can detect all of your movements within 15 square meters.

One unique feature the HTC Vive offers is called "Chaperone", which uses a front-facing camera on the headset, combined with two external sensors and is perfect in preventing accidents.

A light blue screen appears when you're out of range. It combines the virtual world and the real world and so prevents accidents. At the same time HTC Vive becomes transparent and alerts you when you go out of range of its camera placed in front of the glasses. Check this out:

There are many possibilities for games, since HTC Vive is developed by Steam. When you buy the HTC Vive, you can get Job Simulator, Fantastic Contraption and Tilt Brush for free.
