Like the Oculus Rift, its rival HTC Vive is also in progress. CES 2016, HTC unveiled its VR glasses Vive Pre developer versions of Second Edition. Both glasses body and the handle controller, the new version brings new experiences for players. In addition to the changes in design, officials say Vive Pre performance and user-friendly than the previous version has a great deal of progress. Old, you want to know how it works, and get hands-on experience from the field:
Compared to the first version, HTC Vive Pre has improved in many ways, combined with a great deal of progress. Incipio iPhone 6 5.5 case
First thing to say is the base station. You can install it on the wall to paint a virtual 3D space, so that you can move around, can still maintain a precise position. Compared to the previous version, base station was smaller, and less noise.
Now with glasses ontology structure is more complex, in order to make the necessary tight regulation so that it can keep up with your head. Sponge near the eye and nose plugs can be replaced, you can find out what the most comfortable convenient long wear. All in all, wear glasses and have no difficulty.
But Vive Pre is not perfect in the comfort and wear, you may feel the weight on the nose. However, this is not a big problem.
Compared with the previous edition, Vive Pre handle the controller can be said to be “reborn”. Not to mention the complete change in my appearance, experience has been greatly improved. Touchpad is still there, but now it can be longer. Rear trigger button now has two-level changes can be more subtle operation.
Most people care about is the ring structure on the top of the handle. What it is, the official did not give an explanation. This may be prepared for mounting accessories, or help locating role. Handle volume is still very large, but the weight is well balanced.
What’s disappointing is, this HTC offers demo Demo is the same one: submarine navigation and simulation Office. Although these can still shock, but we all need to be able to play something new.
But there are still fresh, and is very eager to intergalactic air combat game. Position yourself in the Chair, right hands hold the throttle and flight joystick, driving like a real pilot spacecraft. As you roll over or hover when a sense of panic, but it feels great. With the Vive Pre sensor, you can observe in the cockpit for four weeks.
Officials say Vive Pre screen brightness higher than the first edition. If you have experienced previous Vive, see Upgrading very clearly. More intelligent image processing means that everything becomes clearer, even those more distant objects away from you. In General, Vive Pre feels more lively. But because there is no AB compare, it’s hard to say how much it really improves.
In addition to the outside shape, Vive Pre had the biggest improvement is a front-facing camera. This feature is known as a Chaperone, which uses the camera to let some realistic scenes appeared in the virtual world.
At first we might worry that this feature will affect the sense of immersion, but the actual use will find it difficult to detect its presence. In the previous version, Vive will use a grid to remind you that you are going to the wall. Grids are diluted now, when you are about to cross the border will appear fuzzy outlines of the real world, such as moving objects, people, etc.
You can use the new reality scenes more apparent around the handle, so you can see the chairs, beverages and what not. That way, even if immersed in the virtual world is not bound by real-world environments. This feeling is difficult to explain, but you can be sure that the new features the perfect balance between the virtual world and the real world. Incipio iPhone 6 Case
If there’s anything to say Vive on Pre “hateful” where is the line that way. Sometimes you forget that line might be to, what happened to it. But you can’t blame HTC, because under existing technology, to achieve low latency HD screen can only be achieved through a wire connection.
HTC Vive has been very good on the first edition, Vive Pre can still have that much progress. Is easy for you to feel that everything in the new version is better than the previous version too much.
Vive Pre immersion is quite good, thanks to its location, allowing you to walk around. Despite the Demo experience for a short period, but you would still be eager to try more game with it.
