HTC Announces a Wide Range of Premium VR Hardware at CES 2019

The HTC Vive Pro Eye will be launching this April, according to HTC.
Also announced is an upgrade to the Viveport subscription service, an unlimited subscription for VR allowing members to discover and explore hundreds of virtual destinations anytime with unrestricted access.
Probably the most interesting hardware announcement came in the form of the HTC Vive Cosmos which is being described as a "consumer-friendly" headset which will be easier to set up for the average consumer. Not only that, but eye-tracking also makes way for foveated rendering, which is just a fancy terms that means VR is about to get more gorgeous graphics.
So let's kick off with the HTC Vive Pro Eye.
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. The idea is simply that the headset can track your eye movements, which can then be used to activate menu and navigation controls. This will range from popular games like Torn to creative applications like Tilt Brush and even meditative experiences.
The Vive Pro Eye will be made available for purchase during the second quarter of 2019. "When we first launched our Subscription service, we gave consumers the ability to try 5 titles a month".
The Vive Cosmos requires no base station allowing owners to use it wherever and whenever they want to, redefining how VR is accessed.
"We found that over 85% of VR intenders believe that ease of use and set up is the most important factor to consider while purchasing a headset", said Daniel O'Brien, GM, Americas, HTC Vive.
The Command Center now offers GPU overclocking (and underclocking), allowing changes to take effect at the system level and work in conjunction with CPU and RAM overclocking as well as thermals. The Cosmos will be the first headset to use the new interface.
But HTC Vive has been working on a 6DoF version, which AMD had on demonstration with an HTC Vive Focus to showcase its ReLive livestreaming technology. In addition, the Cosmos update will also be released later this year.
