HTC Vive Pro Eye and Vive Cosmos VR headsets showcased at CES 2019

08 January 2019 3

HTC is one of the leaders in the virtual reality (VR) hardware market as it has been selling Vive products in good numbers. Now, it has announced two new VR headsets named Vive Pro Eye and Vive Cosmos at CES 2019 in Las Vegas. Both these headsets are aimed at helping users consumer VR content but differ in terms of specific features that they bring to the table.

The HTC Vive Pro Eye is a VR headset with in-built eye-tracking functionality. It means it will allow users to navigate through menus/options and interact with VR objects using their eyes instead of relying on physical controllers. This technology will also ensure that the content always stays in the center regardless of where the user is seeing. This will help in offering a high-quality content consumption experience all the time.

The team is currently targetting working professionals with this VR headset. This makes sense considering that it costs a whopping $799 just for the headset itself. It is definitely an expensive release which is something casual consumers would not be interested in purchasing.

Next up, we have the Vivo Cosmos VR headset which is aimed at casual users. It is currently said to be relying on a connection with a PC to get powered and start working. The exact compatible PC specifications are unknown but it should work on a high-end gaming PC. It features four cameras for inside-out tracking and a flip-up display. It does not need any external sensors and has completely redesigned motion controllers. HTC has kept most of the details regarding the headset a secret for the moment but we can expect more information in the near future.

The eye-tracking functionality is one of the best features in terms of feature-improvements in new gen products. No manual controller needed now.

The way the mobile division was going tough for HTC for a few months in the recent past, it was only the VR division that literally kept them afloat.
