It’s a big day for HTC as the company has not only announced its latest smartphone, the HTC One M9, but also its hugely surprising new virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD). The company took to the stage at its press conference for the 2015 Mobile World Congress event in Barceolna, Spain today to confirm that it was working with Steam platform owner Valve on the kit. For those that missed it, the first video of the kit can now be seen below.
The video below is a very early glimpse at the HMD, which will be launching a developer kit this spring and a consumer version by the end of 2015. It features mainly conceptual content but does provide the first look at the kit itself right at the end of the video.
Valve will be showcasing the Vive HMD itself at next week’s Game Developer Conference (GDC). VRFocus will be at the event to bring you all of the latest from the technology.
