The Refresh: Wireless VR is coming to the HTC Vive

This week on the Refresh: A wireless virtual reality could be just around the corner; we review the new 13-inch Macbook Pro AND the PS4 Pro and Gaming editor Brett gets all nostalgic when he unboxes the new Nintendo Classic Mini NES.

This week’s top story:

Wireless HTC Vive: HTC has revealed a new accessory that will allow its Vive VR headset to be used wirelessly. TPCast, a startup that’s part of the firm’s Vive X accelerator programme, has developed the device, which clips on to the Vive headset which means you no longer need to be physically tethered to your computer.

It’s not currently available outside China, but if you want to navigate to their site and place an order it’ll cost you around £175 before tax or shipping
