HTC Vive

If you’re a virtual reality enthusiast, then you’ve no doubt spent (or have wanted to spend) a great deal of time with HTC’s high-end VR rig, the Vive. Launched in 2016, the Vive instantly became the standard bearer for quality and features--at least until Facebook’s Oculus matched the Vive’s capabilities with the release of the Touch Controllers for Rift in December 2016. Either way, the Vive opens up rich, room-scale VR experiences that incorporate users’ hands, thanks to sophisticated controllers. To help spark more great content for the Vive, HTC created Vive X, an accelerator program that brings in talented developers and helps them build the next round of Vive experiences.

HTC was first founded in 1997, and went public in 2002. Cofounder Cher Wang is still CEO. She oversees 5,000 employees at the company, which is valued at $2.08 billion.
