HTC unveils compact USD 499 Vive Flow VR headset

Friday 15 October 2021 | 10:08 CET | News
HTC has announced the upcoming launch of its latest immersive glasses device, the lightweight Vive Flow. Rather than its recent business-oriented headsets, the Flow is designed with comfort and portability in mind for entertainment-based use. It weighs just 189 grams, compared to 500 grams or so for the Oculus Quest 2, and is above all intended to help people "nurture their minds, relax, and have fun on a daily basis," said the company.
