HTC Vive unveils two new VR headsets

No Caption Provided

VIVE CosmosUnveiled for the first time today, Vive Cosmos is the newest VR headset from Vive, offering absolute comfort, and ease of set-up and use-ensuring consumers can access their virtual world whenever their life may call for it.

HTC is expanding its Virtual Reality portfolio with new smart VRgears featuring eye-tracking technology and support for third-party apps.

While the Vive Pro Eye is aimed at the enterprise segment, the Cosmos will target enthusiasts.

This was the first of many announcements made during HTC's presentation.

HTC, a Taiwanese electronics manufacturer, is pushing its efforts in the virtual reality (VR) headset business. The biggest highlight of the Vive Pro Eye is the fact that it comes with precision eye control technology while the HTC Vive Cosmos is a VR headset which comes equipped with inbuilt motion sensors and can be connected with a smartphone or a PC. The Vive Cosmos will not feature eye tracking and will rely on handheld controllers. Though it is designed for PCs, in the video teaser you see a smartphone in use for some goal. Here's everything we know so far. Firstly, it allows this headset to implement Foveated rendering.

The Vive Pro Eye, a revised version of the Vive Pro, is equipped with eye-tracking hardware.

While there's now no information about how much the headset will cost, what its full capabilities are, or when it will be released, HTC said it would be "coming soon", with development kits to be offered sometime in early 2019. No, as Tobii eye tracking and many others have already begun to prove with their own ocular devices, eye tracking is a quick and easy way of interacting with software: such as navigating menus or interacting with games. The company's original HTC Vive garnered a lot of early excitement, but a series of aggressive price cuts from Facebook's Oculus forced the company into a rough spot trying to find hardware margins in the less price-sensitive enterprise market. Instead, the Vive Pro Eye will blur those sections of the image, saving processing power.

HTC unveiled the Vive Cosmos VR headset at the CES 2019. We'll keep an eye out for any more tidbits of info from CES, but failing that? A pre-existing service called Viveport VR subscriptions limited users to only five titles a month.

On the content front, HTC is upgrading its Viveport subscription service and will introduce Viveport Infiity on April 5.
