With still 39 days remaining on its Kickstarter campaign the world’s first 8K virtual reality headset created by Pimax has already passed $1 million in funding thanks to over 1642 backers.
Originally requiring just $200,000 the Pimax team of developers and engineers now have five times more than the required to take the 8K VR headset into production, with more funds from backing expected.
Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the Pimax 8K which enables users to experience VR with Peripheral vision while solving the problem of screen door effect and motion sickness, says its developers.
Pimax 8K is a cutting edge virtual reality device designed for VR futurists. Our goal is to create an intuitive VR without the shade of the headset, and sharp enough that you won’t be disturbed by pixels. We doubled FOV to 200 degrees, with an increased resolution to 2*3840×2160. Meanwhile, we have eliminated motion sickness, which is often associated with longer exposure to a virtual environment.
Pimax 8K VR has been built to support the mainstream content currently available in the market, including Steam VR, while offering the largest field-of-view (FOV) of 200° and the highest resolution (2*3840×2160) on any VR headset on the market with less than 15ms latency.
Pimax 8K is now available to back via Kickstarter with early bird pledges starting from $499 and delivery expected to take place during January 2018. For full specifications and more information jump over to the official Kickstarter campaign page via the link below.
