HTC unveils Vive Cosmos PC VR headset - Peripherals

HTC reveals Vive Cosmos a new VR headset with inside-out tracking

During its CES 2019 press conference focused on virtual reality, HTC made a series of announcements revealing what's next for the company. The feature allows graphics to be optimized where the viewer is looking directly to boost graphics quality while reducing fidelity at the periphery of vision. The goal is to redefine ease of access, comfort and portability with the VIVE Cosmos; the first development kits will be available in "early 2019", and further details on pricing and release date are coming at a later moment.

The thing is, when something like the HTC Vive Cosmos is launched and it's not fully explained, it's incredibly frustrating because it doesn't give VR the platform it deserves.

Virtual reality is taking off in a big way. Some key benefits mentioned potential using the Eye include better product design and user research, better accessibility, increased speed of VR interactions and more efficient CPU and GPU usage. As the former's name suggests, the Vive Pro Eye is an evolution of the Vive Pro headset which adds integrated eye tracking capabilities - using the data from where the user is peering to boost perceived resolution, perform clever focusing tricks, and even operate menus or record training data for later analysis. HTC explains that the eye tracking takes place via LED sensors located around the lenses inside the HMD.

HTC also debuted an all-new VR headset called the Cosmos. The company created this as a headset that can be used anywhere. Additionally, HTC has partnered with Mozilla to make Firefox Reality the default web browser on all Vive VR headsets. Cosmos is usable both at home or on the go, according to HTC. The gamer-friendly, versatile design is useful in all sorts of VR content.

Finally, HTC also announced an exciting update for members of the Viveport subscription service: starting on Vive Day, April 5, 2019, Viveport will move to an unlimited subscription model known as Viveport Infinity.

So when a picture of the new Cosmos headset being shown on stage with a smartphone nestled inside, but the brand is only saying "it'll be powered by a gaming PC, and also be powered by more than that", it's annoying.
