HTC Vive has had a fairly successful start to the year with CES 2017 showcasing new technology like the Vive Tracker and Vive Deluxe Audio Strap for example. The former has garnered significant interest since then, due to the fact that it can be attached to real world objects to bring them into a virtual world. For developers keen to get their hands on one of the devices today’s the day, as HTC has now opened applications.
Whether you’re a video game developer, accessory manufacturer, or a creative studio interested in virtual reality (VR), now’s your chance to get the newly announced Vive Tracker for free. HTC wants to kick-start development for the new device, so from now until 7th February 2017 all you need to do is apply in time to secure one of the 1000 units available. Apart from all the usual details HTC wants to know your project and how you plan on using the tracker, whether its for a piece of sporting equipment or tracking the cat.
The Vive tracker is just another one of HTC’s initiatives to spur VR development around the world. This month has seen the launch of ‘VR For Impact‘, a $10 million USD initiative created to support positive impact and change in collaboration with the United Nations (UN), helping the organisation achieve it Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
