Interestingly, HTC VIVE has also added dual front-facing cameras, something that developers could find creative uses for.

On Tuesday, shares of HTC outperformed the broader market, up 0.42 percent to close at NT$72.30 (US$2.45) after the debut of the Vive Pro, while the weighted index on the main board ended down 0.01 percent at 10,914.89 points. In addition to the potentially clunkier design of the included headphones, the headset has come with two new settings known as "Alert" and "Conversation" mode so that you can adapt to anything happening in-game and in the real world without ever taking off your headset. One thing to note is that for those who have already ordered a wired version, there is a wireless adaptor for the VR headset, meaning they will not have to purchase the model again. Following the first-to-market introductions of VIVE and Oculus wireless adapters, the Chinese company is expanding its portfolio to deliver a wireless solution for Windows Mixed Reality.

HTC is also looking to push the limits of VR technology since it will now be offering a wireless version of the Vive Pro VR headset.

TPCAST will present and demonstrate the TPCAST Plus products at CES 2018. And with it comes improvements that many VR users were hoping for in their next set of headsets!

Don't get me wrong, I'm very pleased HTC have improved the native res of the screens.

According to Metro, HTC Vive Pro VR Headset was designed in partnership with Steam creators Valve.

Facebook is testing a new section to emphasize local news
It's part of Facebook's Journalism Project Initiative, which includes creating local news partnerships as one of its objectives. The company plans to add the service to more cities, and let people choose to follow local news from other areas.

This will be called the Vive Wireless Adaptor and will provide a better movement range for the owners since it will no longer be attached.

The creators of the HTC Vive Pro carefully approached the issue of load distribution on the user's head.

He continued: "Like many people in the industry, we see VR complementing AR [augmented reality] in terms of being part of an expanded immersive technological revolution; innovations in VR complement AR in terms of development and reach". Some expectations go as far ahead as 2019, but in the meantime, the Wireless Adaptor is expected to launch sometime during the third quarter of 2018. The Vive Pro, when you look at it carefully, isn't a lot different from the original Vive.

Along with HTC Vive Pro debut and accessory Vive Wireless Adapter, whose task will be to ensure wireless connection with PC helmet and Vivo Vive Pro.

The reveal coincided with news that Facebook's Oculus VR division has teamed up with China's Xiaomi.
