It’s not that easy really. It’s much more difficult in terms of power consumption and weight of the batteries if the hardware isn’t integrated in the headset. It adds considerable cost and weight and the higher the resolution gets the more extreme this becomes.

The weight of the battery is about 1/10 of an HDMI cable. I don't see how you get heavier headsets and higher power consumption if there is LESS hardware in it.

Have you seen the cost, the weight and the size of the Vive wireless pack?

Wireless data transmission costs huge amounts of power, especially at high res 90 fps stereoscopic with ultra low latency.

I’m sure you’ve experienced how fast your cell phone drains from looking at a few websites.

It also needs a very high bandwidth data transmission, all this is not cheap.
