UploadVR went hands-on with the TPCAST accessory for the HTC Vive, which enables the headset to work wirelessly. The device sits on top of the head strap and connects to a battery pack kept in a pocket. It communicates with a PC via a wireless transmitter placed above the play space. UploadVR brought in a gymnast to perform flips and then threw him a controller, demonstrating the ability to do even acrobatic maneuvers in wireless VR. Overall they reported negligible impact on latency but occasional visual artifacts.
Unity Technologies launched its experimental Editor VR interface for working on projects within VR. There’s an extensive beginner’s guide available.
