HTC launches Vive development and training for accessories and peripherals

HTC (TWSE: 2498) has begun working with third party developers and hardware makers to expand the accessories and peripherals ecosystem for the HTC Vive, the company said.

HTC said it plans to hold in-person training courses in Asia to complement the courses being provided in the US by Valve and Synapse. These training courses will provide development resources, software for developing tracked accessories and peripherals, technical support for integration, and go-to-market resources when their products are ready. The program is expected to facilitate rapid development of innovative hardware solutions to create new ways for people to interact with their virtual world.

HTC offers smart mobile devices and technology and is the creator of the HTC Vive, an advanced virtual reality system.
