Tech firm HTC is planning a world tour to let consumers try its new VR headset, Vive.
HTC, who has teamed up with Valve on the project, plans to visit locations in the USA, Europe and the Asia Pacific regions.
According to HTC’s connected products global marketing boss Jeff Gattis, demonstrating VR will be crucial in its launch later this year.
We want to set up at popular events, showing up at game shows, developer conferences, universities and letting people try it,” he said. The challenge for all of us in the VR space is that there is no way to describe it. Nothing comes close to simulating what it’s actually like.
We’re going to make a big push to get this in front of people and let them experience it without having to buy it. That’s also going to help broaden the overall adoption.”
