Check out the HTC Vive now at select Microsoft Stores
Virtual Reality is taking HTC's mind away from actual reality. And as seen with the release of its March revenue numbers, HTC's actual reality has not been too pleasant for the one time smartphone giant. That might change with the launch of the HTC 10, but as we've seen in the past, the company has a tendency to see things through rose-colored glasses.

HTC has started shipping out its Vive VR headset, and those interested in testing it out can find the device at certain Microsoft Stores. Currently, three locations have the VR headset out on the floor for you to demo. Those stores are the Fifth Avenue Microsoft Store in New York, the Microsoft Store at the Bellevue Square Mall in Washington, and the Microsoft Store in Salt Lake City, Utah inside the City Creek Center.

Later this month, 12 more Microsoft Stores will have the HTC Vive on display for consumers to try out. These locations include:

• Sydney, Westfield Sydney in Pitt Street Mall
• Scottsdale, Scottsdale Fashion Square
• Mission Viejo, The Shop at Mission Viejo
• Lone Tree, Park Meadows Mall
• Austin, The Domain
• Huntington Station, Walt Whitman Shops
• Cincinnati, Kenwood Towne Centre
• Orlando, Mall at Millenia
• Troy, The Somerset Collection
• Dallas, North Park Center
• Tampa, International Plaza
• King of Prussia, King of Prussia Mall

Microsoft says that you have to be 18 or older to test out the VR system. And at the participating stores, HTC will be accepting Vive orders for June delivery.
