Enhance mental health and well-being
HTC says the new HTC VIVE Flow will help provide more efficacious ways to focus, relax, and escape. There will be games and other immersive activities to assist with meditation and relaxing. Virtual walks through nature and intriguing destinations, for example, offer opportunities to reset. According to HTC, the device can even help you sleep better by allowing you to wind down more easily.
Vibe Sync virtual workspaces
Using a feature called Vibe Sync you’ll be able to enter virtual lo-fi workspaces; distraction-free environments where you can work more productively or simply relax. This is a pretty cool feature for those who can’t find an effective place to focus or get a few minutes of “me” time. Goodbye, noisy neighbors, I’m going to my private beach office for the day!
