HTC VIVE Launches New Tools For VR-Friendly Businesses

SimforHealthSimforHealth Sleep Endoscopy Simulator

The images were first discovered in an imgur album by reddit user "2flock". Besides, we have to ask why Valve would want to present a challenger to the Vive and Vive Pro, after they have been partners with HTC for more than 2 years? Back in 2016, code in Valve's Dota 2 included the phrase "HLVR", and an update on the Steam VR app Destinations made mention of it around the same time.

And while it's yet to be confirmed how much, if at all, Vive has been involved in this headset, it appears to have many similarities with that company's own hardware, from built in headphones, room-tracking cameras and sensors on the outside, to the same high-resolution displays as the Pro. According to Valve News Network, Valve's own VR headset is deep in development at this point and when it eventually launches, it will be bundled with a game. It already has its Knuckles VR controllers out for developers to make work with their VR games and software, so it's arguably no surprise that the company has likely ended up making its own headset to go alongside the controllers.

Despite the continued losses, HTC said its gross margin, - which reflects the difference between revenue and cost of goods sold - rose to 4.7 percent in the July-September period from 2.7 percent a quarter earlier because of better controls on costs and stable sales of its virtual reality products. UploadVR doesn't state when we might see more about this project, or whether Valve is even still in the process of deciding if it'll come to market. Valve has created and released hardware in the past, like the Steam Link or Steam Controller.

Nevertheless, the information is not official yet and the photos might be of an internal prototype that will never see the light of day.

But if these leaked images are legit, Valve seems keen to develop a VR headset completely in-house. Would you buy a Valve VR headset, if one was available?
