Some of the premier titles in the Viveport store include an updated Everest VR, a new edition of theBlu, Google Spotlight Stories’ Pearl, The Music Room, Stonehenge VR, Lifeliqe, and more.

To promote the store, HTC is holding a 48-hour sale during which several hit titles will be available for $1. The discounted titles include theBlu, Mars Odyssey, and Firebird – La Peri.

HTC wants to encourage consumers to explore, create, connect, and experience new VR titles. Viveport showcases VR experiences across art, creativity tools, design, education, fashion, music, sports, travel, video, and more. Viveport’s mission is to democratize access to the world’s most diverse selection of immersive experiences by empowering all content creators to reach and engage the fast-growing global VR audience.

“We believe Viveport is the place where customers will start their journey into new virtual reality experiences,” said Rikard Steiber, president of Viveport, in a statement. “Now, fans in over 30 countries will join us on a fantastic voyage, as they get to experience amazing VR Apps published by the best content creators in the industry. In addition to debuting new Viveport Premieres, we are also rewarding our community with a special 48-hour launch celebration, where several marquee titles will be available for a special price of $1.”

Viveport Premieres consist of content launching first on Viveport.

“Vive is a leader in VR and we’re excited about the Viveport release, as we bring a new version of theBlu to VR fans everywhere”, said Neville Spiteri, CEO of Wevr and maker of theBlu. “We can’t wait to see new and existing customers try out theBlu, Gnomes and Goblins, and some exciting upcoming titles on Viveport.”

The Viveport store also includes the Viveport Community, where you can join and connect with other VR fans, influencers, and enthusiasts. The store also includes Vive Home, where you can customize your personal space with the debut collection of objects, experience streaming media with the new web browser widget, and more.

“And one more thing,” said Steiber. “Any day now, we will relay a secret message that will reopen a path to unlimited Viveport content for worthy contenders. We hope you will follow us on social media, install the VIVE software, visit Viveport.com, and explore Vive Home over the next month, as we unveil more clues and keys to unlock the treasures.”

Autonomous delivery drone network set to take flight in Switzerland

Matternet has long used Switzerland as a testing ground for its delivery drone technology, and now it's ramping things up a notch. The company has revealed plans to launch the first permanent autonomous drone delivery network in Switzerland, where its flying robot couriers will shuttle blood and pathology samples between hospital facilities. The trick is the Matternet Station you see above: when a drone lands, the Station locks it into place and swaps out both the battery and the cargo (loaded into boxes by humans, who scan QR codes for access). Stations even have their own mechanisms to manage drone traffic if the skies are busy.

And the automation isn't just for the sake of cleverness -- it might be crucial to saving lives. Company chief Andreas Raptopoulos expects the drone network to transfer medical supplies within 30 minutes, and the reliability of a largely automated system means that hospitals don't have to worry about unpredictable delivery times (particularly on the ground).

Don't expect drones to blanket the skies. Matternet explains that there will only be one or two drones per network, and expansions to Germany and the UK will only happen once it's comfortable with Switzerland. The company got permission to fly over densely populated urban areas in March, if you want a sense of the time scales involved. Still, this is an honest-to-goodness example of a practical drone delivery network, and one performing crucial tasks at that -- this isn't just a nice-to-have luxury. If this network succeeds, it might persuade other countries to at least consider allowing drone networks..
