HTC Vive, Amazon & Mozilla Take VR Web Integration to the Next Level

No Caption Provided

This year, at CES 2019, HTC has just announced an all-new PC HMD called the Vive Cosmos, as well as a precision eye-tracking enabled version of the Vive Pro called the Vive Pro Eye. The feature allows graphics to be optimized where the viewer is looking directly to boost graphics quality while reducing fidelity at the periphery of vision.

The Vive Pro Eye is a brand new headset coming from HTC that looks nearly identical to the Pro. For now, the league is using it in stadiums that have Home Run Derby VR set up for fans to play at the park.

In a surprise announcement, HTC also announced the Vive Cosmos, the company's next-generation VR headset. In a press release, HTC said Cosmos will have "the capability to be powered by more than a traditional gaming PC". "There's so much more to Vive Cosmos", HTC said in a tweet, "[and] we'll be sharing more details soon on this exciting new VR kit". There's also no external tracking required.

Should Fabregas move to Monaco, he will be reunited with former Arsenal teammate Thierry Henry, who is now their manager. We are wishing him all the best, because he deserves it.

If you've ever used a virtual reality headset, you know that it tracks a lot of things including your head and hands to ensure a seamless, immersive experience. As the name suggests, this new headset is bringing eye integration into the mix, improving performance for both the company and consumers. The Vive Cosmos employs the new Vive tracking system with support for gesture controls and 6 degrees of freedom (6 DoF). The new hardware enables experiences that aren't possible without tracking the user's eyes, including gaze-oriented menu navigation and the ability to control the VR experience without using controllers.

HTC General Manager, Americas, Dan O'Brien, positioned the Eye hardware as a great move for enterprise users.

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 incredible product we could buy right now). HTC also hinted Cosmos might one day hook up to a phone. It announced a new VivePort Infinity plan, which it says is the world's first "infinite VR subscription".
