This year’s CES fair showed an explosion of interest in virtual, expanded and mixed reality. HTC Vive Cosmos will certainly increase the reach of the broader VR and AR technology base.
One of the products that attracted attention is the modular VR headset HTC Vive Cosmos. No external sensors are needed for work, because it uses tracked motion controllers that allow it to easily set up and maintain a high level of comfort.
Designed for relatively mainstream users and home or mobile. Cosmos will initially be connected to PCs but it is not expected to spread services on other platforms. Judging by the teaser video focus will be on those mobile.
‘Great adjustment has been made on the look of the device itself. Novelty is a flip-up screen that makes it easy to get back to the real world without removing the headset. Tracking will perform two cameras, on the left and right sides.
Controllers will be more similar to the recently introduced Oculus Quest headset, rather than its predecessors. They hope to get closer to a gaming audience that is turning more and more into VR and AR technologies.
The Culex office can barely wait for one to get to the test.
