HTC has just announced the Vive, a virtual reality headset developed in collaboration with Valve. It will be available to consumers later this year, with a developer edition coming out this spring. The company has promised to have a significant presence at the Game Developers Conference next week, where devs will have a chance to play with Valve's VR technology.
The Vive Developer Edition uses two 1200 x 1080 displays that refresh at 90 frames per second, eliminating jitter and achieving photorealistic imagery according to HTC. The displays are said to envelope your entire field of vision with 360-degree views. The company says in a press release that it's the first device to offer a full room-scale experience.
