Although we love the HTC Vive, there’s nothing more annoying than having the tethered connection wrap around our ankles and calves when we’re deep in VR action.

It’s one remaining drawback to high-resolution, PC-based virtual reality, but those immersive experiences are about to get a lot “safer” thanks to TPCast.

The company said on Wednesday, November 8 that its $299 TPCast adapter for the HTC Vive is now available to pre-purchase in the United States and Canada.

TPCast cuts the cord by establishing a wireless connection between the HTC Vive and the parent PC.

The Link Box plugs directly into an electrical outlet to send power to the Vive headset.

The kit includes an HMD Receiver that mounts on the HTC’s top strap, and plugs into the HDMI and USB ports on the back of the headset.
