Bulgarian company called Quark VR just announced that it is working with Valve to create the HTC Vive, which streams through Wi-Fi. Given that wireless connections are often unreliable and slow, Quark is based on a special handheld Wi-Fi transmitter that will broadcast the VR images.
The transmitter communicates between the headset and the computer, and not entirely without cable; It will continue to lead runs from the pocket in the handset. However, there will not be any cables around your feet or your computer.
Quark says it struggled to keep strong enough to prevent the delay, but it’s “still very close” to be able to demonstrate a prototype. One wire is not so bad, right?
