Default HTC readies up the Vive Standalone headset in China

Here at TR, we love the HTC Vive and what it offers. The thing is, a VR headset of the Vive's caliber has a whole bunch of barriers to entry. You need a fast PC, a relatively large empty space for room-scale VR, and have to spool out several meters of cables and set up tracking lighthouses. You also have to buy the headset itself, of course, and then you'll need a Steam account to make use of the majority of the software for it. If nothing else, the up-front cost is a major barrier to entry for folks outside economies where disposable income doesn't abound. That might be the biggest reason why HTC just announced its Vive Standalone VR headset.
