HTC Glimpses The Future Of Virtual Reality With 2 Pared-Down Prototypes

As any focus group agency will tell you, real-world customer feedback is invaluable to the development of any project And it’s seemingly for this reason that HTC has just unveiled prototype images from its new “Project Proton” VR range, which it hopes the public will help critique as part of the company’s efforts to iron out the kinks.

Thus far, HTC has revealed two proto-VR rigs which are referred to as the “All-In-One” device and the “All-In-Two” — the latter of which is a VR headset powered by an outside processing module like a smartphone, while the former piece of proto-tech appears to have its processing module housed in the head strap, allowing for a smaller and lighter visor. According to the company’s CEO, the two prototypes were designed with the goal of looking as close to standard, non-VR glasses as possible. HTC has yet to reveal any hard specs or plans for production for either model, though the announcement nonetheless gives us a sneak peek at what the tech powerhouse has coming down the pipe.
