Content from Google Daydream and Samsung Gear VR is also said to arrive on Vive Wave soon.

With China's VR market booming, the number of companies selling VR headsets, particularly for mobile, is also growing.

Iran says does not interfere in Lebanese state affairs
Joanne Hamza, a physical education teacher who wore a cap with a picture of Hariri on it, said he was missed at the race. He added that Hariri says he is free to move and "we don't have any reason not to believe him".

The platform is created to simplify development and enable support for multiple, cross-platform VR devices.

HTC is striving to prevent this scenario by offering a unified solution that supports a wide range of hardware. Therefore it seems likely that those companies intent to integrate Vive Wave into their hardware.

The Bachelorette's Emily Maynard Johnson Gives Birth to Her Fourth Child
On Monday morning, Johnson posted on Instagram that the birth of their to-be-named son has filled him with "so many emotions". Johnson took to Instagram on Monday to reveal the news with a slideshow of joyful pics and videos taken at the hospital.

While the USA has been a slow struggle platform-wise for Vive, China has been a different story where the company has already grown its smartphone-based mobile VR brand thanks to a software launcher tied to its Viveport content store. Developers who are already using Unity will enjoy the added benefit of the new one-click process to publish to Viveport, along with in-app payment support starting with China. Also announced today is the Vive Wave VR open platform, which is basically Daydream for China with 12 hardware partners already signed up, including Quanta, Pimax, Nubia, iQIYI and more. "As the VR industry leader in China, it is our duty to help reduce market fragmentation and provide content developers with more ways to make money". One such example is a VR game called Spark of Light which, according to its developer, only took three hours to port the original Vive version to Vive Wave.

Along with the Vive Wave announcement, HTC discussed a few more details about its upcoming standalone VR headset for the China market.

Civilians killed in air strike on rebel-held Syrian town
Russia, a key ally of Syria s President Bashar al-Assad, began a bombing campaign in support of his government in 2015. Elsewhere, the bodies of at least three children were laid out on the ground, partly covered by thick bolts of fabric.

The Vive Focus is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 SoC, and features a high-resolution AMOLED display. While Oculus executives have outright noted that they are not particularly interested in making money off of hardware sales, there aren't many other options for HTC which has done a poor job of becoming a platform company in the United States despite being first-to-market. The representative that we spoke with declined to discuss the full specifications of the hardware and would not say how much the Vive Focus would cost or when it would be available. Dubbed the Vive Focus, this all-in-one device features inside-out 6-degree-of-freedom (6DoF) "world-scale" tracking, meaning it doesn't require external base stations nor sensors, so you can get positional tracking anywhere at any time - even on a train or plane, should you wish to.
