Boy Were We Right: HTC Vive Focus

HTC Vive Focus

We are not exaggerating when we say that this could be the biggest and most influential development in virtual reality - heck, immersive technology - in a very long time.  First, let's get the general stuff out of the way!

The Vive Focus is a mobile VR device put out by HTC.  Their new 2.0 software update adds:

  • 6-DoF (AKA positional tracking) to their VR controller controller
  • HTC smartphone integration
  • Gesture recognition
  • A unique mode for when using VR in a moving vehicle
  • Surroundings mode that lets you see the world through the pass-through cameras
  • Improved storage options

However, this is just piecemeal stuff.  The real story is that through a 5K wifi connection, the HTC Vive Focus will be able to stream SteamVR and HTC Viveport content from your PC to your headset.

Leia in Red Hydrogen One

Red Hydrogen One Holographic Phone
Do you remember Leia?  Not Princess Leia!  Leia Inc. who was developing new holographic (what they call holographic) technology for smartphone displays?  In short, this is a phone that is going to be able to show stereoscopic 3D or true 3D content; not just the volumetric stuff.  It has additional views, so there is some added flexibility there too as far as where the viewing sweet spot is (i.e. the physical point where the 3D comes together).

Looks like their hard work is coming to fruition via the new Red Hydrogen One Holographic Phone!  While it will be deeply discounted with a qualified Verizon or AT&T plan, this baby is going to retail for $1,200 to $1,600 USD depending on the model.

Separate from running the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, the specs list is short.  However, it is being promoted as having support for augmented and virtual reality content, so there is a great deal of potential with this.  Looking forward to more news around this phone!
