The HTC Vive now has a $220 wireless add-on, making the room scale VR headset untethered with no "noticeable difference" in latency. This Wireless HTC Vive add-on is set to release in Q1 2107 and is built by TPCAST, who are part of the Vive X Accelerator program. 
 
Below is a video showcasing a prototype of this VR Wireless add-on being used by HTC's Alvin W. Graylin, who is running the HTC Vive using battery power and is connected to a gaming PC wirelessly. 

This product will greatly improve the HTC Vive's user experience, with the company planning on releasing a variant with a larger battery in the future. Right now the battery capacity is unknown, though the change will be worth it for those who don't wish top worry about tangled wires or cable clutter. 

 

  

According to HTC pre-orders TPCAST HTC Vive wireless add-on will go live at 7 am PST today in China and will ship in Q1 2017. Right now it is unknown when this product will release in the US and EU.
