HTC has debuted some new gear at CES 2019 that will appeal to VR gaming enthusiasts and enterprise customers. The Taiwanese company has introduced a new variant of the Vive Pro known as the Vive Pro Eye. The new high-end model will integrate eye-tracking out of the box, instead of having to purchase it is as an add-on feature as had been the case. The feature allows graphics to be optimized where the viewer is looking directly to boost graphics quality while reducing fidelity at the periphery of vision. It is coming in Q2.

HTC also debuted an all-new VR headset called the Cosmos. The new device is aimed at bringing a PC-driven VR experience to the mainstream. HTC says it has focused on making the device as comfortable as possible and ensuring that it is as easy as possible for the average user to set up. The Cosmos, like the Vive Pro, has been designed to be upgraded over time and may even eventually be able to pair and work with a smartphone and gain wireless functionality.

HTC has also announced that it has partnered with Mozilla to bring the Firefox Reality browser to Vive. The purpose-made VR browser was announced by Mozilla in April last year demoing it on a Vive Focus headset. Navigation is undertaken with the Vive controllers, which will be in their second-generation for the launch of the Cosmos. Pricing and availability of the new Vive Cosmos is yet to be made official.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN/Electronista, and now NotebookCheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to site and its readership.
