Innoactive® VR Suitcase for HTC VIVE: Take your VR content wherever you go
The VR Suitcase for HTC Vive is your all-in-one solution for showing your VR content everywhere. The independent system works without power outlet, is set up in only 3 minutes and doesn't require any tech skills.
Imagine if you could build up a room scale VR installation in seconds anywhere – in a coffee shop, in the park or at your customers place. Less wires, simple to use, not dependent on power outlets. We took the challenge to build a convenient mobile solution for everyone who wants to bring his VR content anywhere: the Innoactive® VR Suitcase for HTC Vive.
With a set-up time of 3 minutes, the easily assembled VR suitcase comes with everything needed from a high-performance, VR-ready laptop to the HTC Vive, rechargeable batteries and two carbon monopods. Everything is already pre-wired and securely protected against impacts and splash water. Base stations are battery-powered with all-day battery life. Controllers can be charged whilst on the go.
UPDATE Sept 23rd: As you are a professional: It ships with HTC Vive Business Edition with international warranty and fast replacements. You can buy it with or without Vive BE. Many of you asked to have a faster graphics card or buy it without notebook. You can now do so in our online store. Send us your feedback, we are listening to you: email@example.com
The all-in-one solution for showing your VR content anywhere.
Blazingly fast set-up time
Setup everything in just 3 minutes! The pre-wired notebook docking station is ready to use. Everything is fool proof: Plug in the Vive, place base stations, do a room setup and you are done.
100% battery powered
The integrated rechargeable batteries for base stations and Vive headset allow you to set-up your HTC Vive literally everywhere.
Room-scale or seated experience mode
Monopods can be mounted either on base plates for room-scale VR – or just use one of them and mount it directly on the notebook docking station for a seated-only experience.
Premium hand-crafted design
Laser cut foam and carbon fiber body of monopod plates and notebook docking station. Made in Germany with love.
Robust high quality suitcase
Protected transportation with waterproof case (IP6). Offers TSA-conform combination lock.
All batteries and notebook can be removed for secure baggage check. Total weight is below 23 kg / 50 lbs.
Charge your controllers on-the-go
With the integrated power bank, your HTC Vive controllers are charged when stored in the suitcase.
