The TPCAST Wireless Adapter for Vive has been available in China since December 2016, with pre-orders only opening up in Europe two months ago. Now the wireless transmitter, a battery-powered device that lets you go cable free, is available for pre-oder in the US and Canada starting today. Shipping is slated as early as November 24th.
The company suffered somewhat of a false start when they first announced pre-order availability in North America back in September. Originally slated for its US release on 9/25/2017 through the Microsoft Store, pre-orders were quickly refunded for no discernible reason.
The company has since launched their wireless transmitter for Vive in several European countries for around €350.
TPCast is also gearing up for the release of its Oculus Rift-compatible trasmitter, with a pre-order page spotted on Overclockers.co.uk. No information on North American availability has been made public yet.
