Experience HTC Vive virtual reality in new Pax Prime promo video

HTC Vive VR at IFA 2015The launch of the new Valve HTC Vive virtual reality headset is creeping closer and closer with limited numbers expected to be made available before the end of the year and, after seeing it in action at IFA, I cannot wait.

The HTC marketing team are gearing up for the launch of the Vive and are promoting a new video that shows reactions to their virtual reality headset from Pax Prime.

I enjoyed seeing the HTC VR kit being used at IFA a couple of weeks ago (see photos) and the video below definitely shows what fun there is to be had when using their VR headset and controllers.

The video gives you snippets of the kind of gameplay you can expect to enjoy in the immersive virtual reality world once the Valve HTC headset becomes a commercial reality.

I cannot wait for HTV Vive to be available, although you might not see me for months after that… so it’s a win/win situation then, right? 😉
