Intel announced its Project Alloy VR concept back in August, but no one's been able to try it since. That all changed this week at CES, where Intel showed off a developer kit to select media. Gizmodo was lucky enough to be invited into the private demonstration -- and we're happy to report that it was well worth the wait.
Intel just announced its own virtual reality headset called Project Alloy, a VR competitor to the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and the forthcoming PlayStation VR headsets. But what separates the Alloy from the pack is that it's completely wireless (the wire above is for capturing video for the demo) and it should give you complete spatial awareness without all the dongles the Rift and Vive currently require.
