CES 2019: HTC Vive Pro Eye, Vive Cosmos VR headsets unveiled

But with VR still in its early stages, it can be tough to know what to take a chance on with your money. They started their presentation by unveiling the Vive Pro Eye. The Vive Cosmos will not feature eye tracking and will rely on handheld controllers. The VR subscription platform will be essentially the "Netflix" for VR games. This approach assumes that your eye can view the entire scene at one time. HTC has revealed that the Vive Pro Eye VR headset will be launched in the second quarter of 2019, however, details about its pricing are yet to be revealed. The newest feature is the use of foveated rendering to give you a better visual quality inside of your VR headset. However, the down point here is that HTC intends to market the Pro Eye headset towards the enterprise segment as they refer it as "an evolution in the enterprise VR space". Firstly, it allows this headset to implement Foveated rendering. It'll use Nvidia's latest RTX cards to do so.

Native eye tracking has a couple of potential benefits. It's also possible that HTC will include other enhancements.

The Vive Cosmos is the other new VR headset unveiled by HTC which has a more mass-market appeal to it and is designed easily of use and module-based customization in mind.

Again, HTC stayed tight-lipped on the headset's full specifications, but it's promising that the Pro Eye will deliver boosted VR interaction speeds and more efficient CPU and GPU usage compared to its last-gen professional-grade VR headset. This headset is a different sort of thing altogether. Interestingly, the headset can be powered by a PC or "other methods".

The Cosmos uses an advanced camera array instead of traditional Lighthouse sensors.

Because, if we haven't made it clear enough yet, VR is still a really cool experience.

In a video released by HTC, we can see the Cosmos with a phone. The company created this as a headset that can be used anywhere. It's going to be very comfortable to wear and simple to set up.

Through the collaboration, Firefox Reality will be pre-installed as the default browser on HTC Vive devices.

The motion controllers have been redesigned and now resemble the Oculus Touch more than the previous generation Vive wands. The controllers look similar to the redesigned Vive Focus wands (albeit with Tron-esque light channels around the outside), which isn't the Oculus Touch competitor people have been hoping for. Soon as more information is released about exactly what will be collected will keep you updated as always.
