We now stock the TPCAST! An add-on for the HTC Vive that enables the user to roam free of cables while in VR.
One of the major problems facing high end VR right now is that you are tethered to a PC by a long cable. This cable shoots all the data from the PC to the headset and into your eyeballs delivering you the VR experience. In some cases this isn't a problem but for games and experiences that require the user to turn around such as Holopoint, The Brookhaven Experiment and most RPG's, you will get tangled up. Not only is this a health and safety issue, constant coiling of the wire causes it to degrade and ultimately shortens it's life span, meaning downtime of the whole HTC Vive headset while you replace the cable.
Above: Up until now this was our best option. Fishing anyone?

With the TPCAST you simply connect the cables provided into the Vive, replacing the original USB, power and HDMI cables, strap the receiver to the top and the receiver to a battery which fits in your pocket and you're on!
