    What exactly is the HTC Vive? I know it has to do with VR, how is it different from Google Cardboard?

    The HTC Vive is a full fledge VR headset, it's MUCH more than Google cardboard or even the GearVR (GearVR being a step up from Cardboard thou). The HTC Vive is on par with the Oculus Rift, if you have heard of that. The Vive has both a headset as well as hand controllers for a more immersive experience. The Vive also, like the Oculus, requires a PC with some pretty beefy specs. (your basic home PC, or business class PC will not do, although most gaming systems will work, or might just need a small upgrade). Anyways here's a good blog about it......\

    YES, but unfortunately I am an iMac owner so I have a problem there.
