HTC Announces Vive Cosmos, A VR Headset That Can Seemingly be Powered by Your Phone
08 January, 2019, 11:42
The system is still in development, with HTC Vive saying that it "includes both operational and experiential elements" created to impact its entire portfolio. There's no pricing yet, but it's supposed to launch in the second quarter of 2019. Cosmos will require no external tracking when compared to other Vive headsets as the unit has cameras on the outside to track movement.
The company also launched the HTC Vive Cosmos, a simpler and easier headset for people just entering the VR ecosystem.
In addition to enabling eye control, eye tracking technology opens the door for foveated rendering, which involves only rendering the part of the experience where the user is looking.
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 unbelievable product we could buy right now). So no matter where you look you're always getting a sharp image.
Eye-tracking technology is exactly what it sounds like: hardware baked into the device that monitors where the user looks within the virtual environment. Instead, the Vive Pro Eye will blur those sections of the image, saving processing power.
Cosmos, which appears to be a middle-of-the range headset, will be HTC's third line of Vive-branded headsets, following the Vive (and Vive Pro and Vive Pro Eye) and Vive Focus.
The catch is that the headset will track what you're looking at, using those data points for analytics.
This is where the Vive Cosmo comes in. In the meantime, I'm going to continue being rather excited about a VR headset that uses eye-tracking.
HTC General Manager, Americas, Dan O'Brien, positioned the Eye hardware as a great move for enterprise users. Cosmos also boasts a design that sees the front of the headset lift upward from your eyes rather than slipping on and off.
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.
