I recently had the pleasure of visiting TPCAST, the first VR wireless adapter maker.
In their office, for the first time ever I had the chance to experience the intense battles of Eternity Warriors VR in a completely wireless environment. And I got to say, I was impressed.
Here are some of my thoughts:
- First of all, making the VR headsets wireless is really a huge technological achievement. What TPCAST have managed to do, can not be understated.
- Without any cable interference on my neck, ears and shoulders, there is now less that can take you out of the experience. This just makes the VR world so much more immersive.
- The weight of the whole equipment is good, and it doesn’t bring any noticeable physical strain to my head. In fact, it actually feels a little lighter without the thick cable.
- The complexity of the hardware installation and configuration process is completely acceptable.
- The battery lasts for about 5+ hours, which is longer than I expected.
I only had the chance to try the Vive version of the wireless adapter, but I was told that there was also a version for Oculus. I am looking forward to the day when they will be able to support all headsets, like the new Windows MR, or even the PlayStation VR.
I think Wireless headsets are the next evolution of desktop VR devices. This can only mean that VR games are going to improve further and become more immersive. I can’t wait to play more Action, Shooter, and puzzle-simulation VR games with this incredible wireless technology.
