HTC sold 15,000 $800 Vive virtual reality headsets in 10 minutes
Virtual reality is still in its early days, but it’s amazing how capable it is of making your bank account look a lot less impressive. HTC revealed today that is has sold more than 15,000 HTC Vive VR kits in the first 10 minutes after it went on sale for preorder. That’s not bad for an unproven technology that costs $800 and requires a $1,000 PC. This comes as companies like Facebook, Google, and Samsung are all moving into this sector.
