HTC Announces Vive Cosmos, A VR Headset That Can Seemingly be Powered by Your Phone

In conjunction with a ton of other VR announcements, HTC today revealed a new eye-tracking variant of its $799 Vive Pro virtual reality headset.

"Vive Pro Eye is targeted at the enterprise market where eye tracking has a number of immediate benefits-from performance, to accessibility, to improvements in training applications", HTC wrote in an official press release.

Announced earlier today (or last night for those of you in the UK), the Vive Cosmos is the latest headset from HTC, and it's been designed with top quality comfort and ease of use in mind. Either way, this is likely to be a pretty popular virtual reality headset for VIVE, but that will depend on pricing as it always does. The Taiwanese company has introduced a new variant of the Vive Pro known as the Vive Pro Eye.

However, what we do know is that it will be a step up from the Viveport VR games subscription. If HTC can give VR a much-needed push with the Vive Cosmos in 2019 remains to be seen. HTC adds that users no longer have to point with the controllers, making manoeuvres faster and more intuitive. There's still a whole lot of questions to be asked about the VIVE Cosmos, and it's unclear when those questions will get answered. Cosmos will be the first Vive headset to feature the "Vive Reality System", an entirely new design experience for VR.

The best I can say is the Vive Cosmos has potential.

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.

In a video released by HTC, we can see the Cosmos with a phone.

"At Fidelity, we're committed to helping people live better financial lives, so we were excited to explore the capabilities of these new technologies", said Adam Schouela, vice president of Product Management at Fidelity's Center for Applied Technology.

When looked at from a gameplay perspective eye-tracking is great for player engagement, whether that's with another human player or an NPC (non-player character). On top of that, HTC has outlined software updates to its content subscription service and something called the "Vive Reality System". The result of this partnership is Firefox Reality, a native VR browsing experience.
