Quark VR may help HTC Vive go wireless
But we should get to know Intugame. The company is behind a communications interface tool of called Quark VR and it could be the bridge between the next Vive headset and the computer — no more wires.
The company announced that it has been working with Valve for several months in conjunction with a venture capital conference. The idea is to connect the Vive headset not with the PC directly, but with “a small gadget” — perhaps even pocketable — that will transfer signals to and from the PC over Wi-Fi instead.
“Getting the experience to feel seamless through Wi-Fi, keeping in mind the inevitable connection delay, was a huge challenge,” said Victoria Victorova, Community & Marketing Manager, “but we’re getting extremely close to being able to show it in action!”
A prototype should be ready for testing in the fall.
Having an HTC Vive be wire-free, but near a PC may keep its target audience distinct from those who want mobile VR everywhere.
