While we still get the occasional HTC smartphone release from time to time, the Taiwanese company has long shifted its focus to the VR headset market. Earlier today an iF Product Design Award listing revealed the next Vive VR headset to the world and it’s targeted at fitness enthusiasts.
The HTC Vive Air is described as a virtual fitness VR headset inspired by sports shoes and made in mind with high-intensity training. The headset features quick-drying knitted fabrics on its upper and headband and a lightweight design ideal for home workouts. The Vive Air also comes with quick-release toggles for the casing which allows for easy washing and drying of the fabric overlays.
HTC issued an official statement to UploadVR where it confirmed that the Vive Air is still just a concept piece at this point in time though we also got a hint that the headset could arrive at Vivecon 2021 which will be held May 11-12.
