Tips and Tricks For The HTC Vive:
Find the Right Room
When it comes to setting up your Vive, you want to make sure that you can find the right room. One of the biggest myths of this kind of VR technology (in particular the Vive) is that you need to devote a room to the setup permanently. The truth is, you do not need to dedicate a room solely to the VR experience.
All you need to do is dedicate a set amount of space where you will be able to have ample amounts of floor room when it is time for you to play a game on it. It is going to be easier if it’s set up in a place where you do not have to constantly move furniture all of the time. The good thing about the Vive is the fact that the room scale is adaptable in size. However, in order to get the highest quality and best experience possible, you will want to try to aim for a decent amount of space.
When it comes to setting up your VR, you are likely going to notice one of the downfalls to this newer technology very quickly throughout the setup process. Unfortunately, you are going to have a lot off cords dragging behind and around you as you are playing. Because of this, you will want to be sure that you get creative with your cable management. If your set up can accommodate, you should attempt to store your Vibe’s power cord stretched out flat when you are not using it. That way, you will be able to avoid getting any kind of kinks in it which can cause even more problems with overall management.
If you are going to want to experience VR at it’s best, you will want to fully immerse yourself with a pair headphones. Whereas the buds that ship with the Vive are decent, you are going to want to opt for much higher quality headphones to complete the immersive experience. Investing in a pair of the high-quality audiophile and noise canceling headphones will go long ways towards bettering your entire experience.
In the end, setting up your HTC Vive shouldn’t be too much of a hassle if you follow the tips above.
