HTC also teamed up with Holoride to bring VR entertainment to car passengers. It showed a demo of its Vive Flow immersive VR glasses using Holoride’s immersive technology platform.

During the ride, passengers will be able to experience Holoride’s ‘elastic content’ which is able to match car movement so that experiences like games actually adapt in real-time to route length and type, driving styles, and location.

Wang said Viverse is present with VR applications today and will be coming in the future as AR and VR hardware advance further to deliver a “future where the impossible becomes possible.”

In the Viverse, you will be able to work out at the gym from your living room, attend virtual concerts, and climb virtual glaciers. The technologies of the metaverse that will matter include VR, AR, AI, blockchain, and 5G, Wang said.

She said the tech should move to the background and experiences should come to the foreground.

“These are technologies that we should continue to innovate to carry us forward,” Wang said.

She said HTC supports Viverse as an open metaverse platform and will work with its partners to deliver the Viverse.
