The characters can come alive by capturing and storing motion capture from off-the-shelf VR controllers like the Vive controllers or Oculus Touch controllers.
The launch for HTC's Vive Standalone VR headset comes just weeks after rumours surfaced that Oculus is also working on a wire-free VR device that'll cost just $200 (around £155). This means that more users will be able to afford virtual reality game play, which means that the technology can gain better popularity even among gamers who can't afford or aren't interested in high-end gameplay. We do know that the Chinese version lacks the Google WorldSense tech that the standalone coming to the USA will boast.
Army thrashes cops, ransacks police station
The army has said that the issue has been sorted out after intervention by senior officers of army as well as police. The armymen allegedly damaged desktops and laptops at the police station, besides tearing off the Daily Diary (DD).
One of the biggest advantages of a wireless VR experience provided by standalone VR headsets is that it makes the gameplay feel more real as the player is not constricted by wires nor restrained by a docked in device.
Back at Google I/O in May, Google announced that it would soon be introducing standalone VR headsets alongside the existing ones that are powered by your smartphone.
While it's clear that it's marketed only at the Chinese market and won't be coming to the United Kingdom anytime soon, it signals that progress is being made in that department. As is the case with all tethered headsets, it requires a powerful PC setup to function. Although all-in-one VR devices would be much lower-performance in comparison, they would presumably be more affordable and thus open up VR to a broader audience.
"China is the leading mobile market in the world today and has the momentum to lead the global VR market as well".
