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

VIVE CosmosUnveiled for the first time today, Vive Cosmos is the newest VR headset from Vive, offering absolute comfort, and ease of set-up and use-ensuring consumers can access their virtual world whenever their life may call for it.

While Facebook and Oculus are out there going after regular folk with the Oculus Go and the upcoming Oculus Quest, HTC Vive seems to be headed the opposite direction by attempting to push VR experiences even further with new Vive Pro Eye.

HTC is expanding its Virtual Reality portfolio with new smart VRgears featuring eye-tracking technology and support for third-party apps. The new Vive Pro Eye will launch in the second quarter of 2019. From a user standpoint, games and apps could use your vision to make menus more intuitive.

HTC will bring gaze-oriented navigation with the new Vive Pro Eye.

HTC also debuted the Vive Pro Eye on Monday, a VR headset that uses built-in eye tracking.

The Vive Cosmos on the other hand has inside-out tracking from four cameras and a flip-up display, requiring absolutely no external tracking.

The Vive Cosmos is created to make VR more accessible to the masses. Firstly, it allows this headset to implement Foveated rendering.

As for motion controllers, gone are the traditional Vive wands, and in are some newly-designed pieces that resemble something a lot closer to Oculus Touch, complete with tracking ring and joystick.

And finally, HTC announced that it's partnering with Mozilla to make Firefox Reality the default browser on Vive headsets.

At the same time as the hardware announcements, HTC confirmed that it was expanding its Viveport software subscription service to include the all-you-can-eat Netflix-style option which was missing at launch.

Once again, HTC also didn't disclose the cost of the new service, saying only that it would be available in April.
