With so many VR headsets launching this year, this is a very good time to be a virtual reality enthusiast. But, there are two VR headsets that are more anticipated than all the others; HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. Both VR headsets are on the brink of launching, and HTC has recently given us a sneak peek inside the HTC Vive’s box.
HTC hasn’t been in a financially stable position in the recent years, it has been gradually free falling in the financial department. With the HTC M10 flagship phone coming out, and also, the HTC Vive virtual reality headset the company is hoping to change that. The VR headset has put HTC back into the spotlight at just the right time.
Unboxings are usually not that interesting, and there are very few surprises & unique items. A device like a smartphone or a tablet’s box, usually includes the device itself, a wall charger, headphones, sync cable, and a manual. The HTC Vive’s unboxing, though, is another story entirely. HTC has thrown in enough cables and peripherals to get you confused and flustered. We are used to not even glancing at the manual, and jumping right into operating the device. But for the VR headset, the documentation is going to be crucial.
