Valve's head honcho Gabe Newell claims that "zero percent of people get motion sick" when tooling about with the new HTC Vive VR headset.
Complaints of motion sickness have plagued the Oculus Rift in all its iterations to date. But this device, which has been built in association with Valve but made by HTC, uses bespoke tech called Lighthouse to recreate your real-world movements within the virtual reality of the headset using a laser-tracking system.
Valve reckons this is what will stop its headset from being one of the "world's best motion sickness inducers" and create the smooth VR experience we've all be hankering for.
Our experience of the Vive VR set had reviewer Tom Parsons grinning from ear to ear. "I’ve experienced the future of gaming," he said. "And it makes the present of gaming look rather dull and flat by comparison."
