If you're interested in the HTC Vive Focus VR headset but you don't live in China, you've basically been out of luck. That is, until now. Today, HTC announced that the Vive Focus would be available in international markets later this year. It's the first 6DOF (six degrees of freedom) headset that's commercially available.

If you're interested in developing software for the Vive Focus, HTC has made international developer kits available starting today. You must be registered with HTC through its developer portal to access them.

We tested the HTC Vive Focus back in November and were impressed by the results, though our short time with it meant we didn't quite get the chance to figure all of it out. The bottom line, however, was that this piece of tech has a lot of potential, though the full experience will heavily depend on the quality of the apps. We confirmed that suspicion with another test earlier this year.
