    As you probably know, the HTC smartphone business has been booming for several years, and it has been about 7 months since the release of the latest HTC smartphone - the HTC Wildfire E3. But despite the decline of this business, HTC did its best not to miss the VR headset market. The Taiwanese company on Thursday, October 14, 2021 (October 22, 1400) unveiled its latest virtual reality headset called HTC Vive Flow. Unlike most headsets on the market, the Vive Flow is designed as a pair of glasses, which significantly reduces the weight of the device. According to some experts, Vive Flow can be considered a device between standalone virtual reality headsets and personal cinema glasses.

    The Vive Flow virtual reality headset weighs only 189 grams and, as mentioned, is designed as a pair of glasses ( Something like Magic Leap One). Due to the design - and especially the slim body - Vive Flow is more like a personal cinema glasses (than a virtual reality headset). Due to the spectacular appearance of this headset, the manufacturer must design it in such a way that it can be placed on the heads of different people. For this purpose, HTC has used a system consisting of 2 hinges in the design of this device.

Thanks to these lenses, users with myopia do not need to wear glasses when using this headset and instead have to adjust these lenses according to their eyes. </p> <p> </p> <img src=

    Among the most important features of this headset can be two screens 1.6K with 75Hz refresh rate and 100 field of view. Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi, Miracast and USB-C port are Vive Flow communication options. Two speakers and two microphones (equipped with echo and noise cancellation) are built into the headset, and according to the manufacturer, it also supports Bluetooth audio. The presence of 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory is another notable feature of Vive Flow.

    Unfortunately, due to the lack of battery, to use this device, you have to use an external power source. In order for the Vive Flow to be truly a portable device, HTC has set its power to 7.5 watts; This means you can connect the Vive Flow to a socket, power bank or even your smartphone using a USB cable and then get started. Of course, if we say that Vive Flow does not have a battery, we are technically wrong, because a very small battery is provided in this headset so that in case of power outage, the headset does not turn off at once and shut down safely. Another advantage of this small battery is that if you want to change the power supply of the headset, you will have up to 5 minutes.

    Finally, hot air escapes from the upper vents.

    Vive Flow is not a standalone headset and does not have a remote control. Therefore, you must first connect this device to your smartphone via Bluetooth or Miracast and then use the phone as a controller within the virtual reality content. This somewhat restricts the user when working with Vive Flow. Of course, you should not expect to be able to play games like Half Life: Alyx on this headset. However, the presence of two camera lenses on the front of the device makes it possible to track hands and figure out deeper virtual reality experiences (although this last feature will be added to Vive Flow in the future with an update).

    Vive Flow focuses on comfort, brain training, productivity, as well as light play, thanks to apps like Color Connect VR, Space Slurpies, and the Tripp Meditation app. It is interesting to know that if you use this headset for meditation at night, the device's blue light filter is activated and helps the user to sleep better. Not to mention, with the purchase of the Vive Flow headset, the user can access a special version of the Viveport Infinity service and can benefit from a wide range of content compatible with this headset for a monthly fee of $ 5.99.
