HTC has today announced that its latest VR headset the Vive Pro Eye created for enterprise and business applications is now available throughout Europe priced from €1,700. Following on from its availability in China, its arrival in Europe is another steppingstone in availability but as yet HTC has not confirmed when the new VR headset will be available throughout the United States.
Inside the box HTC have included a Vive Pro Eye headset, link box, two Vive controllers, two SteamVR 2.0 base stations, adapters and cables providing everything you need to get up and running if you have a capable computer. “The VIVE Pro Eye VR system is designed to meet the needs of the most discerning commercial clients. Improve simulations, insights, and processing with precision eye-tracking technology that enables you to see what your users see and act accordingly. Track and analyze eye movement, attention and focus. Create more immersive virtual simulations. Gain insights about user performance and interaction. Improve training scenarios. Open the door to deeper data analysis.”
For an in-depth review of the new Vive Pro Eye VR headset jump over to the Road To VR website by following the link below. “The Vive Pro brings nice improvements, but when you zoom out and look at the (current) difference in experience between the original Vive and the Vive Pro, it’s hard to make sense of the asking price—even for the enterprise/commercial demographic, since they can’t currently make use of the headset’s (eventual) larger tracking volume.”
