One complaint for many reviewers of the HTC Vive was the excessive amount of cables that come with the package. It detracts from the immersion to have cords all over while in the middle of a game.
Luckily, there is good news for those who want a less cluttered headset (or desk, for that matter). Quark VR is reported to be unveiling a new, wireless version of the HTC Vive this fall.
The headset uses a transmitter that can be put in the user’s pocket, rather than connecting cables to the PC. The attachment works over wifi, sending information back and forth from the PC to the Vive. The creators said that minimizing the delay was one of the biggest challenges, but they’re proud to say that they’re “getting extremely close to being able to show it in action.”
Quark VR’s new wireless device has not been named yet, but will make a public debut sometime this fall.
