CES 2019: HTC announces Vive Pro Eye with built-in eye-tracking feature

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

Since the Vive Pro Eye will track eye movements, it can optimize the virtual world in reaction to a user's focus.

Aside from these new VR headset visors, HTC also announced that it has improved its Viveport Infinity subscription and introduced the Vive Reality System.

"Vive Pro, built to meet the needs of the professional VR user, just got even better with integrated eye tracking on the new Vive Pro Eye-giving users new levels of accessibility, including gaze-oriented menu navigation and removing the need for controllers".

'We found that over 85 percent of VR intenders believe that ease of use and set up is the most important factor to consider while purchasing a headset, ' claims HTC Vive's Daniel O'Brien, focusing on the confirmation that the Vice Cosmos won't require any external tracking base stations. "VR and AR need to be about experiences, not applications", he said. Until we have more information on how that data is going to be used and dispensed, I'm going to keep a hopeful mind about it.

White House says Rosenstein departure his choice
Rosenstein remained in the post after Trump named political loyalist Matt Whitaker as acting attorney general in November. But he also has been a target of President Donald Trump , who a year ago tweeted out a picture of Rosenstein behind bars.

In a video released by HTC, we can see the Cosmos with a phone. With Viveport Infinity, though, users will have access to more than 500 games right at launch. 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. These advances are so far only in the prosumer sphere with the HTC Vive Pro Eye, and it will take some time before this tech trickles down to mainstream gamers.

The Vive Cosmos certainly looks like an impressive headset, but its success will be dependent on pricing. Be sure to stay tuned in to Windows Central for more updates about all the news around HTC Vive! Instead, the Vive Pro Eye will blur those sections of the image, saving processing power.

This is huge, because with the current status of VR content, once you're done playing games like Superhot VR, Moss in VR, and Fallout 4 VR, it often feels like there's not much left to do. Once robust hand tracking is ready to go, we could be enjoying entirely controller free VR experiences.

The Vive Cosmos is the other new VR headset unveiled by HTC which has a more mass-market appeal to it and is designed easily of use and module-based customization in mind. And using its Mozilla partnership, it hopes to bring more web content to VR customers, including plans to launch the first Vive-dedicated VR browser.
