Los Angeles [United States], January 8 (ANI): HTC is pushing its efforts in the virtual reality (VR) headset business. The company introduced its all-new Vivo Pro Eye at the ongoing CES 2019.
The successor to the current Vive Pro, the Vive Pro Eye comes with a built-in eye-tracking mechanism which makes VR headset experience, a little more realistic.
One of the biggest advantages of sewing eye-tracking into VR headset means foveated rendering that adjusts which parts of a virtual scene get priority when processing graphics, Gizmodo reported. By making the headset prioritise graphics based on eye movements, the overall graphics requirements needed to run VR apps is reduced.
The technology also allows for an easier gaming experience. You no longer require additional controllers to navigate. Simply look at an option and the cursor will appear as if the headset knows exactly what you intend to do. (ANI)
