That single cord going down to a pocket sure looks more appealing than the thick wire usually connecting the Vive to a PC tower.

As much as we love the HTC Vive, we're still annoyed by the long, thick wire required to connect the VR headset to a PC tower backpack laptops notwithstanding .

A Bulgarian VR startup is promising a fix to the problem, though, saying that an untethered, wireless solution for the HTC Vive will be ready for demonstration sometime this fall.

Quark VR says it realized the importance of taking the Vive wireless after a public demo in Sofia, Bulgaria left most players "quite disturbed by the cables in their feet or above their head."

From there, Quark met with Valve representatives during a recent stay at a Silicon Valley incubator, and the company says Valve was "more than happy to cooperate with us on the task... we re incredibly happy the guys from Valve are so open to cooperation and improving their amazing creation."

A Valve representative was not immediately available to comment .
