HTC Vive

Nearly exactly a year after it was launched in 24 countries last April, the HTC Vive Consumer Edition virtual reality headset has finally been officially launched in India by the Taiwanese tech company. Eventually Vive will also be available for an in-store experience across select locations in India with interactive Vive demonstration station.

Along with the Vive headsets, you get the wireless VR controllers, room scale movement, and Head Mounted Display featuring a built in camera.

As a promotional offer, HTC will be offering two VR ready apps namely Everest VR and Richie Plank Experience for free when you purchase the Vive headset in India. The Everest VR experience uses a sequence of immersive first person locations to lets users feel what it is like to climb Mount Everest. The HTC VIVE is claimed to be the first complete VR system to be made available in India. "Now consumers and developers can experience immersive virtual reality in a way that reshapes human imagination beyond boundaries". While the device was launched with a $799 price-tag in the USA last year, HTC is charging nearly twice as much for its first-generation VR headset in India, having announced a staggering price-tag of Rs. 92,990 ($1,437).

Apart from VR supported apps, the Viveport also has tailor-made VR contents across multiple genres ranging from education to sports.
