HTC has announced an upgrade feature and functionality to their current existing marketplace called Viveport VR during CES 2018. Microsoft's Windows Mixed Reality HMDs, which can run on integrated graphics, boast at least 1440 x 1440 pixels per eye.

The highlight of the new system is the improved combined 2880 by 1600 resolution from its dual-OLED displays, which the company boasts is a 78 percent increase over the original Vive.

The headset comes with revamped ergonomics designed for comfort of use and wear, high-resolution headphones with a built-in amplifier, and better optics.

At the same time, HTC unveiled the Vive Wireless Adaptor, which they say will be the first wireless VR adapter to market. HTC did not say what thier function is.

Ms Bishop has previously left the door open to relocating Australia's embassy from Tel Aviv, should its major allies do likewise. The delay could be purely symbolic, since the US has a few more weeks before it must make the payment.

What's noteworthy is how the tweeted image has "new year's" blurred out, with the word "resolution" in complete focus and decidedly sharper - all of which hint towards the possibility of the outgoing HTC Vive model being upgraded with a pair of higher resolution panels. This option will be available in Q1 and a full package will be available later this year that will include new Vive controllers.
