HTC Shows Eye-Tracking Tech in Vive VR Headsets

Play Slideshow

Very few details have been for the HTC Vive Pro Eye.

Also announced is an upgrade to the Viveport subscription service, an unlimited subscription for VR allowing members to discover and explore hundreds of virtual destinations anytime with unrestricted access. Commercially seen for the first time in conjunction with Windows Mixed Reality (WMR) headsets, at CES 2019 this week VRFocus came across the prototype pair of controllers for HTC's standalone headset, Vive Focus. It is created to facilitate the experience of interaction with the VR helmet since the beginning of its use.

Equipped with the eye tracking ability, the headset will help enterprise users and developers gather more data to improve training simulation scenarios, and optimize VR performance and other applications, while reducing the need of computing resources for the processing of high-end VR content, O'Brien added.

On the downside of things, we are going to have to wait a little longer until we can get our hands on the Vive Pro Eye since HTC said that it plans to release it in Q-2 2019. With no external base stations required, Vive Cosmos maximizes flexibility of usage space, whether at home or on the go, and has the capability to be powered by more than a traditional gaming PC.

If this already has you sold on the headset, it's worth noting that even though no price point was announced, it'll likely be more expensive than the established Vive Pro headset at $799. Currently, there is no word on the pricing and availability of the new HTC VR headsets, however, we will keep you updated on the same. "The tools and environments that make up Vive Reality System aim to make spatial computing accessible to everyone, wherever their journey into immersive worlds takes them". Also Vive Cosmos will have new controllers. "We want VR to feel less like launching apps and instead like stepping between worlds".

As we jumped into our first demo, the Vive Pro Eye walked us through a brief setup where you adjust your IPD (interpupillary distance or the distance between your pupils) and then use your eyes to follow a small red dot that appears sporadically in different locations on the screen.
