You've probably seen plenty of gameplay videos of people crawling around, shooting things and just generally exploring the virtual world through the HTC Vive, but what about its interface? HTC and Valve have crafted an incredibly intuitive user interface that's both easy to use and looks great, but what about those extra hidden features that you might not have been aware of? We take you through both the SteamVR interface as well as the HTC Vive home portal and show you how everything works. We also go over how to set chaperone bounds, adjust the volume in-headset and a handful of other features as well.
Don't forget to check out all our HTC Vive coverage as we build up to the final review in the coming days. We've got some first impressions after the first weekend of use and have been absolutely blown away with the results. This is the real deal VR headset and it really shows in games and real world usage, and it's really something that you need to experience for yourself to truly understand. If you want your own you can order one right now for $799, although it's only shipping on waves at this point trying to keep up with demand. Stay peeled for the full review coming soon!
