HTC Vive was developed in cooperation with game developers at Valve, merging two major players in their respective fields, hardware and software. The headset includes two display panels with a resolution of 1080 × 1200 pixels, while the 90 Hz refresh rate makes sure that everything looks naturally.
The package includes two base stations to be placed in the corners of the room. The stations emit laser beams towards 32 sensors on the headset and 48 sensors on the controllers and so determine the player’s exact position in space.
The minimum game space for movement is 1.5 m x 1.5 m, while the maximum is 4.5 m x 4.5 m. The larger the area the better experience.
