HTC Teases Additional Vive Flow Images
It is just a casing but it is a hint of what to expect later in the month.
HTC is revealing additional Vive Flow teaser images in the run-up to the full announcement later in the month.
These images are from the announcement event’s website. The event is scheduled for October 14th. All the images feature the cylindrical casing that was shown in the first image earlier in the week with the casing sometimes turned on its side, sometimes having its lid on and sometimes with the lid off.
From the images, it looks like the device could be some sort of container. All the images show the cylinder hollow and the only image where someone’s head is shown is where the cylindrical container has its lid closed off, presumably showing that the device is stored inside the cylindrical container and not on the user’s head.
Just like in the laptop image shown last week, the popcorn image shown in the teaser image could also indicate that the user can see the real world or that they are probably using the device from the container to watch some movie or TV show. Popcorns go with the movies, right?
It is highly likely that the Vive Flow device fits inside the container teased in multiple images. Should that be the case, the Vive Flow will be an AR device with a relatively small form factor, not too different from the recently released Facebook Ray-Ban Stories, Nreal Light or the just unveiled Nreal Air augmented reality glasses. It is going to be a lightweight wearable. It is also unlikely that the HTC’s concept lightweight virtual reality headset, Project Proton, would fit in a container of this size. We are likely going to see HTC’s unique take on the smartglasses or it could be an augmented reality device that is tethered to a smartphone like the Nreal Light.
A Vive Flow trademark appeared after the earlier teaser images so we are on the right track. The teaser images show a consumer angle to the device but it could also have potential enterprise use-cases. Keep it here. We will be informing you as more leaks and details emerge on HTC’s upcoming Vive Flow device.
