The HTC Vive and Vive Pro are cutting the cord for wireless freedom with the upcoming launch of the $299 HTC Vive Wireless Adapter. The Vive Pro needs an additional Vive Pro compatibility pack which costs $60 as it requires a different attachment device and foam padding. The device can be run for hours from a simple HTC QC 3.0 PowerBank smartphone battery pack. Pre-orders go live on September 5th and you can buy them from your local retailer on September 24th. Installation of the Vive Wireless Adapter occurs in minutes by installing a PCI-e card and attaching a sensor from the PC that broadcasts to and from the newly wireless Vive headset. The adapter has a broadcast range of 6 meters with a 150 degree field of view from the sensor and runs in the interference-free 60Ghz band using Intel's WiGig specification, which, combined with DisplayLink's XR codec, means low latency and high performance with hours of battery life.
