TPCAST HTC Vive wireless system now available for pre-order

If there is one major issue with the VR it’s the cables which are particularly annoying when using roomscale. One of the solutions is TPCAST, a small box you shove onto the Vive¬†which allows users to remove the annoying cable.

TPCAST is now available for pre-order but it’s not cheap, especially if you’re based in Europe. TPCAST is available through select retailers and it costs around ¬£320 which. It’s also now available in the US for pre-order for around $299.

The TPCAST comes with a transmitter to replace the cables and a receiver which fits onto the top of the Vive. The battery life is around five hours of play time.

Although the price of the Vive has dropped, adding another few hundred onto the setup makes wireless VR a little more expensive than some might have hoped.

The video below demonstrates how this works.
