HTC'svirtual reality division, Vive, has announced new high-end tethered and self-contained virtual reality devices, the Vive Pro Eye and Vive Cosmos respectively, along with new software offerings including an all-you-can-eat software subscription. This renders sharp images for wherever the human eye is looking in a virtual scene and reduces the image in the periphery. Instead we're at CES seeing the launch of anotherVR headset from HTC, the new Vive Cosmos - or, at least, we think we are.
Changing the way you look at virtual reality. The new device is aimed at bringing a PC-driven VR experience to the mainstream. In its press release, HTC provides further hints that the HMD has "the capability to be powered by more than a traditional gaming PC".
The new headset builds integrated eye tracking into the Vive Pro, making foveated rendering a built-in experience rather than a pricey add-on. Cosmos will require no external tracking when compared to other Vive headsets as the unit has cameras on the outside to track movement.
Eye tracking can also be used in place of handheld controllers.
Additionally, enterprise customers can use eye tracking to better train and evaluate users. The Vive Cosmos employs the new Vive tracking system with support for gesture controls and 6 degrees of freedom (6 DoF).
According to HTC, the number of Viveport subscriptions went up three times since last CES, and it also has three times the amount of content as before.
That's ranged from a belief that this brand could take on the iPhone with the HTC Desire (which it did) to charting new territory into virtual worlds with the Vive headset (which offered a possible, exciting view of the future rather than an wonderful product we could buy right now).
The Cosmos, which will run a new platform called "Vive Reality System", is meant to be a more approachable type of headset than what HTC has typically offered.
"We found that over 85 percent of VR intenders believe that ease of use and set up is the most important factor to consider while purchasing a headset", said Daniel O'Brien, general manager of HTC Vive in the Americas.
