HTC is planning to launch a brand new VR headset this week and can be working by itself metaverse-like digital world, according to a report from Protocol.
Let’s begin first with that new headset. It’s reportedly a standalone VR headset known as the Vive Move and is meant to be a media consumption system “with entry to some informal gaming,” Protocol says. Nonetheless, it received’t ship with controllers and can be much less highly effective than the Oculus Quest 2, Protocol reviews. The Vive Move will reportedly be introduced at HTC’s October 14th event, which might make sense, as HTC is promoting the event with the “Go together with the Move” tagline.
The brand new metaverse area is seemingly known as Viveport Verse. In response to a site about the service (which was dwell as of publishing this text), you’ll be capable of make your individual 3D avatar and discover “quite a lot of occasions,” however the area may even have an “NFT Showroom” and user-generated content material “accessible quickly.” You seemingly received’t want a VR system to go to Vivepoint Verse, although; the web site says will probably be suitable with desktop units, laptops, cellular units, tablets, and VR headsets.
We’ve collected screenshots of the Viveport Verse web site within the gallery beneath, within the occasion that HTC closes entry to it.
It’s unclear how this new Viveport Verse area would differ from the enterprise-focused Vive Sync expertise. It looks like Viveport Verse could possibly be extra of a collection of digital worlds of many sorts, maybe just like Facebook’s Horizon Worlds, versus Sync’s digital assembly areas supposed for work.
