Starbreeze in collaboration with Tobii to integrate its world-leading eye tracking technology into the unique 210-degree, 5K resolution StarVR HMD.
5K! Pants got smaller, wallet feeling lighter....
Holy hollow this is awesome and wallet feeling smaller!
I feel like this might be tooo ambitious.
I'm really glad VR is getting a lot of interesting tech, but I want to see some better applications for it before I shell out money.
Applications! Looks so cool, I'm going to be wearing this thing on my way to work!
Definitely not the Starbreeze I expected.
Anyone else think this is going to cost a fortune?
Regular 1080p vr headsets cost upwards of $400. And 5K is seven times the amount of pixels as 1080p, so I expect the price to be seven times the price of a 1080p headset.
The price will not be seven times more than 1080p sets, that's a business model for failure. Double the price? Maybe, close to $1200 at the most IMO. If it's more than that they can kiss VR goodbye, not many people will fork over that kind of money.
Supes, it was a joke and a bad one at that. Isn't that weird to be real only be for really small percentage of the community before ending up like Google glass an expensive failure
Integrating Eye-tracking really makes sense. Great product spec wise. Question is: who will program for it? The broad consumer market will level off at the lowest common denominator ... as allways.
5K is overkill since you need a high end machine for 1080p VR.
You could just display it in 1080p. Like people do with intense games with monitors they pc can't handle. It's nothing new. This is trying to get rid of the screen door effect. I buy the of vr if I find out if all vr devices are compatible with whatever interface they will be using. Like can I play games that's designed around OR or vive this or vice versa. I'm sure it could being how pc is an open market and can patch stuff. I only want the best vr and this looks like the one to buy. No need to halfass. Pc market is the only market this will work in being so open an a fan base that don't mind paying for innovation and progress
