This week, the HTC Vive tour, bringing the SteamVR based VR headset to people around the world, makes a stop in Taipei, Taiwan with the expected suite of VR experiences in tow. Just one thing was different, seems the Vive picked up some new branding.
Whilst we (and many others judging by your comments) were disappointed to learn of HTC’s decision to push their launch date to April 2016, with pre-orders in February, it seems that evidence of the headsets proximity to release is on show in Taipei, Taiwan. Specifically, a new set of branding for the SteamVR powered Vive VR Headset – as evidenced in the images below, seen here courtesy of Saydigi.com.

HTC have apparently now shown the Vive to 8,000 people in 20 cities and on 19 campuses, according to a recent blog post. HTC will also bring their ‘Vive Unbound’ event to Beijing next week, followed by CES in the new year.
