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

New this year are the HTC Vive Pro Eye eye-tracking hardware, Viveport Infinity games pass subscription, Vive Reality experience and Cosmos VR headset. At its best, this allows scenes in a user's peripheral vision to be less sharp and detailed, and instead spend a system's resources on whatever object or seen the user is looking directly at. It seems like a ideal fit for HTC's new flagship, not an also-ran like the Vive Pro Eye. HTC did not disclose pricing for any of these new announcements.

And here's our first peek at the Vive Cosmos. Though it is designed for PCs, in the video teaser you see a smartphone in use for some goal. HTC refers to this technique as "foveated rendering". The Vive Pro Eye has a similar design as last year's Vive Pro, though it's gotten upgrades under the hood to incorporate eye tracking. According to the original release information posted on the official HTC Vive blog, Vive Pro Eye is targeted at the enterprise market, where eye tracking has proven to have a considerable number of benefits, including accessibility, performance and overall improvement potential for training applications. No, as Tobii eye tracking and many others have already begun to prove with their own ocular devices, eye tracking is a quick and easy way of interacting with software: such as navigating menus or interacting with games. Dubbed the Vive Cosmos, Vive said the Cosmos won't require any external tracking solutions like the lighthouses used on a regular Vive, and also added that it could be powered by a number systems including desktops and laptops, while also strongly hinting at mobile platforms like smartphones. Lockheed Martin is using the Vive Pro Eye to help train student pilots, for example. So it is very possible that HTC could announce the VIVE Cosmos at MWC next month. This will become available on April 5. Be sure to stay tuned in to Windows Central for more updates about all the news around HTC Vive! HTC keeps shouting, "Hey, did you know you can buy all your VR games through Viveport?"
