Viveport (PRNewsFoto/HTC)

It’s not just enough that your virtual reality platform runs on SteamVR with the backing of one of the biggest gaming companies in the world. With augmented reality headsets and smartphones addressing practical issues, the HTC Vive needs to be more than just about hit points and hitboxes.

So, the company is going to launch a beta version of its Viveport showcase for apps covering “edutainment, social media, 360° video, news, sports, health, travel and shopping.”

Developers will be able to crack in after a few weeks, submit content and, eventually, get monetization. The full Viveport experience will launch in 30 countries during the fall.
