HTC Vive Cosmos up close: Pre-active, not quite turned on just yet

Today we're getting up close and personal with the HTC Vive Cosmos, a VR headset made for the masses. The device itself doesn't power on - not for the press at the moment, anyway. Instead we're forced to only look at the most basic elements at play - the industrial design, and the details we've been given by HTC on its near future.

HTC VIVE Pro Eye hands-on: More than just eye-tracking

HTC VIVE Pro Eye hands-on: More than just eye-tracking

This week we got the opportunity to try out the newest in innovative VR tech from HTC, the HTC VIVE Pro Eye. This device looks a whole lot like the standard Vive Pro on the outside. In fact you might mistake one for the other, except for the bright blue outline around one element at the front of the headset. From the inside, it's a whole new world.

HTC VIVE Pro Eye, Cosmos dev kit, Infinity subscription expand VR ecosystem

Consumer electronics encompasses a wide variety of products, from smartphones to appliances to, of course, computers. One new face in recent years has been virtual reality and while the hype around what was believed to be the next wave of computing, its biggest proponents haven’t given up hope. In fact, HTC VIVE just made a couple of new announcements, including two new headsets. And it is so confident in its VR ecosystem that it’s opening up an unlimited subscription tier for all the VR experiences you can get.

HTC smartphone lines to be rebooted again next year

HTC smartphone lines to be rebooted again next year

If at first you don’t succeed, try and try until you go bankrupt. That might be the adaptation of the age-old aphorism that HTC is trying to adopt as the Taiwanese company struggles to leave a mark in the smartphone market. HTC Taiwan’s president Darren Chen has been quoted saying that the company plans to reboot its smartphones for the first half of 2019. Ironically, that apparently means stretching its HTC U12+ flagship as far as it can go.

New HTC Desire 12s is not OCD-friendly

New HTC Desire 12s is not OCD-friendly

There's a new smartphone on the market from HTC, and it has a back-facing camera setup that's a little off-center. Instead of planting the entire camera array in the middle of the phone, they've decided to place the one lens in the center, making the whole backside rather uncommon. We've certainly seen our fair share of off-center camera setups before, but never one quite like this.

HTC: news of our demise has been greatly exaggerated

HTC: news of our demise has been greatly exaggerated

Like the stereotypical hero, HTC refuses to admit defeat despite the almost insurmountable hurdles it faces. Few smartphone makers are perhaps as embattled as the Taiwanese company, both economically and even politically. But despite continuing losses in the smartphone market, despite scandals that rocked its hierarchy, and despite whispers that say otherwise, HTC says it still believes in smartphones and will continue making and launching such products. At least as far as 2018 and 2019 are concerned.

HTC U13 might never happen, “something else” coming later

HTC U13 might never happen, “something else” coming later

With all that’s happening in the smartphone market these days, it’s almost too easy to forget that HTC still makes smartphones. Even Sony hits headlines more than the Taiwanese company, at least in mobile news (HTC’s name always comes up in VR, though). Aside from the very niche HTC Exodus blockchain phone, the last notable smartphone the company put out was the HTC U12+ back in May. And if rumors are true, that might actually be the last premium HTC U phone we’ll see.

HTC VIVE Wireless Adapter Review

HTC VIVE Wireless Adapter Review

The HTC VIVE Wireless Adapter is a bit of technology that changes the overall feeling of reality in a room-scale VR experience. This is an add-on to the original HTC VIVE and the HTC VIVE Pro. This adapter isn't required to enter virtual reality, but it'll make the process a lot less painful if you're not particularly sure-footed. Less painful, that is, if you didn't have a rough time setting up the VIVE in the first place.
