HTC Vive Pro has been available in the market for past few months, however, only as a standalone product without any base stations and controllers. Users either need to recycle from an older version or buy new ones but, that is not the case anymore as HTC Vive Complete Kit is now available.
The HTC Vive Complete Kit comes with the upgraded base station and controller along with HTC Vive Pro. The base stations included are actually upgraded SteamVR 2.0 models which provide 10m x 10m play area.
However, if the play area is still not enough for you then you can increase it, double it actually, as HTC Vive Pro supports up to 4 base stations.
The kit also includes controllers along with a mounting kit, link box, USB 3.0 and DisplayPort cables and other stuff that you will need with HTC Vive Pro.
However, while the Kit includes everything that you will need with HTC Vive Pro but, it comes at a hefty price of $1,399 which is almost three times the price of the HTC Vive. If you already have the controllers and base stations from an older version of HTC vive then you only need to upgrade to HTC Vive Pro.
The difference between the HTC Vive and Vive Pro is that the Vive Pro provides higher resolution and a higher pixel count of 2880×1600 pixels. The original on the other hand, provides 2160×1200 pixels which is 78% of HTC Vive Pro.
Speaking of Virtual Reality, with the rise of VR many developers have brought incredible games to VR headsets. Many of the games we play have a message to convey and environmental awareness has come to VR thanks to SeaLegacy’s Turning the Tide Exhibition.
The exhibition focuses on reminding people that they need to take care of the environment as we are a part of it and it well being is our responsibility.
