HTC Vive Cosmos Headset Promises Lightweight, Portable VR

  • HTC teases standalone Vive Cosmos Vive Pro Eye VR headsets

Instead we're at CES seeing the launch of another VR headset from HTC, the new Vive Cosmos - or, at least, we think we are. Other than that, the Vive Pro Eye has all the same specs that the Vive Pro does.

The company also launched the HTC Vive Cosmos, a simpler and easier headset for people just entering the VR ecosystem.

HTC says it plans to make the Vive Pro Eye available to developers later this year, and it's already been working with a select group of partners on experiences for the new headset.

Changing the way you look at virtual reality.

In case you missed it: New Game of Thrones footage released
If you managed to miss it among all the Golden Globes news today, HBO did a sweet little sizzle reel for all of its 2019 releases. Fans also got to see Julia Louis-Dreyfus back from her battle with cancer as Selina Meyer for the final season of " Veep ".

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). The images in the user's peripheral vision are rendered at a lower quality, which doesn't impact the experience due to the way the human eye works. Why not explain why, when the brand has just told us that it's added 1,000 new games this year, we're only able to access 500 of them? It lacks all the indentations of previous headsets used by the Lighthouse sensors to track the headset. The vendor said this means businesses can build even better training programs. This isn't just going to help by removing the need for controllers. Its teaser trailer would imply it uses your smartphone to power its VR experience (see below), but HTC have also said it "has the capability to be powered by more than a traditional gaming PC".

Admittedly, we don't know much more about the Vive Cosmos than that at the moment.

Finally, HTC also announced an exciting update for members of the Viveport subscription service: starting on Vive Day, April 5, 2019, Viveport will move to an unlimited subscription model known as Viveport Infinity. While the Cosmos features inside-out tracking, the HTC Vive Pro Eye brings you "foveated rendering" to change the way you'll look at games and apps in virtual reality (VR) forever. HTC did not disclose pricing for any of these new announcements.
