VIVE Unveils New Accessories and Subscription Service at CES


Vive is kicking off CES 2017 by introducing two new accessories and new services that will lay the foundation of the VR ecosystem for years to come.



Available in Q2 2017, the Vive Tracker and Vive Deluxe Audio Strap are new accessories, and Vive is expecting wireless accessories to be available in 2017. In addition, Viveport will be launching a subscription service as well as app stores for arcade and enterprise customers in early 2017.

The Vive Tracker, available in Q2 this year, enables motion tracking for entirely new form factors within the VR world. It is the the foundation for building a new accessories ecosystem for Vive. Vive's partners in the company's space at CES are showing off their Vive Tracker integrations including multiple rifles built for VR shooters, a baseball bat, a firehose and haptic gloves. At its core, the Vive Tracker will integrate with any number of future VR accessories via a simple connection. The Tracker weighs under three ounces (90g) and is 99.65mm (Diameter) x 42.27mm (Height).


The Vive Deluxe Audio Strap is designed with adjustable headphones, allowing you to enjoy even more comfort. The headstrap features integrated headphones and a new customizable sizing dial for quickly adjusting the fit of theheadstrap. The Deluxe Audio Strap will also be available in Q2.

Vive also showcased a product many of you may have heard about recently from TPCast, a wireless adaptor which was incubated through the Vive X accelerator program. It includes a one and a half hour battery, and latency as low as 2ms. TPCast will be shipping in Q2 2017 and will retail for $249 USD.

In terms of content, in early 2017, Viveport will be launching a subscription service to help you navigate and find the VR apps, as well as introduce a new channel through which VR developers can monetize their content.

There are currently thousands of apps available on Vive globally. Viveport's subscription service will help people navigate this growing marketplace and discover new apps, providing access to a library of content for a low monthly fee.
