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 referred to as the Vive Movement and is meant to be a media consumption gadget “with entry to some informal gaming,” Protocol says. Nevertheless, it gained’t ship with controllers and will likely be much less highly effective than the Oculus Quest 2, Protocol stories. The Vive Movement will reportedly be introduced at HTC’s October 14th event, which might make sense, as HTC is promoting the event with the “Go along with the Movement” tagline.
The brand new metaverse area is seemingly referred to 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 can even have an “NFT Showroom” and user-generated content material “accessible quickly.” You seemingly gained’t want a VR gadget to go to Vivepoint Verse, although; the web site says it is going to 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 might be extra of a sequence of digital worlds of many sorts, maybe much like Facebook’s Horizon Worlds, versus Sync’s digital assembly areas meant for work.
