If you own a premier VR headset for PC (like a HTC Vive or Oculus Rift) then you'll know that at this stage in VR the worst thing about those headsets is the cables. Well, for Vive owners at least, you'll soon be able to put $300 towards cable freedom with a new wireless adapter.
Preorders for the HTC Vive Wireless Adapter will begin on September 5 for $300 and will let you start using your Vive or Vive Pro headset without any cables. However, Pro versions of the wireless adapter will cost an extra $60, so be warned.
The adapter utilizes Intel WiGig technology and connects to the top of the Vive headset. It's supposed to have enough batteries for 2.5 hours of use.
Wireless VR headsets is currently the big goal for VR hardware developers. Oculus is reportedly working on a high-end VR set codenamed "Santa Cruz" while third-party hardware firms have released their own wireless adapters.
