HTC's Viveport Infinity subscription offers unlimited access to VR

HTC's Viveport Infinity subscription offers unlimited access to VR

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.

In addition to the subscription, HTC opened the doors and announced its next VR headset, HTC Cosmos. So it is very possible that HTC could announce the VIVE Cosmos at MWC next month.

The interesting hook with the Vive Pro Eye is the inclusion of eye-tracking.

Changing the way you look at virtual reality.

In a report via GamesIndustry, the company has teased their Cosmos headset. HTC hasn't yet revealed full specifications of the headset, but the company says the Pro Eye will offer efficient CPU and GPU usage compared to previous-generation professional grade headset. Much as we love PCs, the Quest's slick wireless VR is impressive enough that we've already hypothesised it "could be the VR headset moving forward".

Meanwhile, the Vive Cosmos will run a new platform called "Vive Reality System". A few years ago when the original HTC Vive and Oculus Rift hit the market, they passed the proof of concept test in ways stuff like the Virtual Boy never did.

On the side, HTC has also revealed its Vive Cosmos headset for the first time in CES 2019.

HTC Vive Pro Eye VR is the next step in virtual reality as it represents the second phase of development of the VR headsets, thus, being a more performant VR solution for those planning to play VR games or enjoy virtual reality scenes at their maximum. Guess it going to take a while before we able to see the new VIVE Cosmos at retail stores then. If Vive can learn anything from Oculus, however, the controllers are the right place to start. Vive is delivering on the promise of VR with game-changing technology and best-in-class content, bringing VR to consumers, developers and enterprises alike.

Eye tracking capability within virtual reality headsets allows for a similar technique that follows the same principles as your eyes.

Through the collaboration, Firefox Reality will be pre-installed as the default browser on HTC Vive devices. Viveport Infinity is a new Netflix-style subscription service from HTC that gives users unrestricted access to hundreds games, experiences, 360 degree videos and other VR content without having to pay for them individually.
