The resolution is an improvement, but I doubt it's significant enough to warrant a buy if you already own a headset. Everything else looks like quality of life stuff that the Rift always did better anyway.

The wireless adapter is probably more important. You can buy a third party one for either the Rift or Vive, but initial impressions are that it's a little clunky. I figure the second generation headsets will probably have wireless capability built-in, but it's nice to see it as an option.

It’s such a pity the rifts sensor system is so sucky when they do the headset so right.

Is it not coming with the knuckle controllers? That's a bit odd.

Built by a different company.
HTC do the headset. They buy in the tech for the lighthouses (sensors) and the knuckles, from Valve (I think)

Well yeah I know that, the wands themselves are valves design. I'm just surprised they haven't waited on the knuckles being finalised. Maybe they're still too far out from being ready.
