In this HTC event at this year MWC the HTC One M9 was the so waited device. But the company managed to surprises us with two more great gadgets.
Let’s start with a concept already very known by the users. This one is a bracelets that monitors your exercise and daily basis activities. And the name? HTC Grip!
The HTC Grip not only monitors your exercise but also shows your smartphone notifications, like calls, messages or emails. This is very useful nowadays with our always busy schedule.
This new band will have 5 sensors incorporated, including GPS. With a great design this promises to be another good bet from HTC. And because our friends are very important and training alone could be boring sometimes, with the HTC Grip you can invite up to 20 friends to training.
But HTC doesn’t stays here! The company wants to innovate and not only in the smartphones field. In this event HTC surprises every one by presenting their new bet and innovation. HTC presented the Vive, a partnership with Valve. This is the first step of HTC into the virtual reality world.
According to HTC, with the Vive the users will be able to play games, see photos or videos, shopping and even chat in 3D. The company strongly believes this will be the future of the human and machine interaction.
This device will have 70 sensors incorporated and along side with a 90 Hz refresh rate the users will have a room scale experience. And your movements are not forgotten. The Vive have a hand movement track.
You probably are thinking that you will have to wait a very long time until you can get your hands on this device but according to HTC informations you are wrong. It’s expected that the Vive will be available on the market before the end of this year!
This HTC event was truly like their slogan “HTC utopia in progress”.
