During the Intel Developer Forum this week, Intel made a cool announcement and that is with the introduction of a new VR headset.

The headset has been named Project Alloy and has been developed from the ground up by Intel.

Intel said that it has been built to provide everything that you need for VR into one all-in-one package. Not on that, but the device is also completely wireless.

Intel explains more about it with the following:

During his opening keynote at the 2016 Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco on Tuesday, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich unveiled Project Alloy, an all-in-one virtual reality solution made from the ground up. A clear example of the future of merged reality today, the Alloy platform completely redefines what is possible in an all-in-one VR platform.

Go untethered:  Operate without pesky cords dangling from your VR headset connecting to the computer. The computing power is located in the Alloy Head-Mounted Device (HMD), which allows the user to experience VR untethered. That means you can “cut the VR cord,” allowing a free range of motion with 6 degrees-of-freedom across a large space.  This, combined with collision detection and avoidance, enables the user to utilize physical movement to explore a virtual space.

It will be made available for developers and hardware manufacturers to build upon the platform in 2017.
