One of the biggest issues that modern VR headsets need to tackle is the "tether" issue, where users need to be aware of where their cables are located to prevent themselves to tripping over or conduct more complex movements. 
 

What Wireless VR promised is full 3D freedom within the virtual world, allowing users to spin, jump or even do back flips within the VR world, things that are difficult to downright impossible to do with tethered VR headsets.   

Now the world's first Wireless VR solution is available to Pre-order in the UK, allowing users to upgrade existing VR headsets with wireless capability, promising a latency increase of less than 2ms to provide users with full room scale freedom of movement. 

This accessory is priced at £318.95 at Overclockers UK and at €349 in the EU, with the shipping date of this device being expected sometime in October.
