If you have a full PC VR setup, there’s a good chance you’ve al­ready found your­self wish­ing you could ditch the cum­ber­some ca­bles that at­tach the head­set to the com­puter. And alas, the ru­mored wire­less fol­low-ups to the Vive and Ocu­lus head­sets didn’t show up at CES for the start of 2017, so it seems that na­tive wire­less VR head­sets will have to wait a lit­tle longer. All’s not lost when it comes to rem­e­dy­ing this big­gest ob­sta­cle in VR’s sus­pen­sion of dis­be­lief, how­ever. Af­ter­mar­ket wire­less VR head­set don­gle KwikVR is aim­ing to cut the cord with a 5GHz Wi-Fi based con­nec­tion. On pa­per, the 4 hours play time, less than 12ms ‘guar­an­teed’ la­tency and uni­ver­sal com­pat­i­bil­ity sounds like a recipe for suc­cess. Whether or not KwickVR can achieve all this in the real world, how­ever, is yet to be seen. JB
