I don't get how it can be completely untethered unless they've made the external cameras for Oculus / Vive wireless ? (last I checked, they are not wireless)

And if they haven't, won't that introduce latency in order to implement?

The Vive's don't need to be connected to a PC, just powered on.


The Oculus, on the other hand, needs USB connections, so it wouldn't truly be wireless. I guess this was made with the Vive in mind.
