HTC adds eye tracking with Vive Pro Eye

HTC adds eye tracking with Vive Pro Eye

It's an interesting addition, and likely as time goes on developers will be able to add more interesting features using this eye-tracking tech, however, the headset itself remains largely unchanged from the HTC Vive Pro.

HTC has partnered with Mozilla to make Firefox Reality the default web browser for its whole line of VR headsets.

Dell also announced a PC hardware partnership with Riot Games and League of Legends Esports, saying it was ushering in a new generation of PCs that will enable League pros to compete at a higher level and also standardise operational logistics for their global operations. To further improve the content watching experience the device uses a "foveated rendering" technology which sharpens the images wherever the user is looking. This week at CES 2019, Major League Baseball (MLB) debuted the Vive Pro Eye by integrating the eye tracking into the "MLB Home Run Derby VR" video game experience. Fans can experience the new Vive Pro Eye starting in 2019. "The tools and environments that make up Vive Reality System aim to make spatial computing accessible to everyone, wherever their journey into immersive worlds takes them. Our fans simply operate menus by using their eyes". "When we first launched our Subscription service, we gave consumers the ability to try 5 titles a month". The headset does not require external sensors to track motion, allowing for it to be used in a wide variety of contexts.

Both populist governments have been embroiled in conflicts with Brussels over topics of national sovereignty. Poland's ruling party faced sharp comments from domestic critics for its apparent openness to Salvini.

Bernard Tomic baffles Nick Kyrgios with freakish match-winning serve
Bernard Tomic's clash with Nick Kyrgios was a drawcard at Kooyong, not least because of the polarising pair's unpredictability. On the women's side, Eugenie Bouchard of Westmount, Que., is scheduled to play wild card Shuai Peng of China.

"Through our exciting and innovative collaboration with Mozilla, we're closing the gap in XR computing, empowering Vive users to get more content in their headset, while enabling developers to quickly create content for consumers". "We want VR to feel less like launching apps and instead like stepping between worlds".

The Vive Reality System will power experiences across the entire Vive product portfolio and will be available first on the Vive Cosmos when they are released later this year.

If you own an all-in-one headset using Vive Wave, you can install Firefox Reality by searching for it in the Viveport store.
