November 30, 2018

Taiwanese HTC recently announced that it plans to separately cooperate with McLaren Racing and Taipei Medical University by providing them dedicated VR solutions for use in motor racing and medical areas, respectively, the Economic Daily News reported on November 29. On November 23, HTC released a limited edition of VIVE Pro McLaren, VIVESudio, and McLaren Garage VR solutions, with an aim to tap over 500 million Grand Prix motor racing enthusiasts. The VIVE Pro McLaren limited edition consolidates VIVE Pro’s ultra-high quality image processing ability, high-resolution sound field, and the ergonomic design to give users a full McLaren car-racing experience. In addition, DeepQ - a healthcare subsidiary of HTC - also partnered with Taipei Medical University on November 29 to develop the world's largest VR virtual dissection classroom. In addition, it has also applied for the medical device license for clinical medicine applications in the future. The HTC VR is also building a 3D dissecting environment that makes the study of anatomy more realistic and efficient. Taipei Medical University has already implemented such medical VR system for its students. HTC is set to obtain the medical device license from Taiwan Food and Drug Administration sometime in 2019 in the hope of seizing the medical center market opportunity in advance.
