The new HTC Vive Pro Eye headset comes with integrated eye tracking

Mozilla promotes various VR sites and activities available with its Firefox Reality browser

The HTC Vive Pro VR headset was unveiled today at CES 2019 and comes with built-in eye tracking. The newest feature is the use of foveated rendering to give you a better visual quality inside of your VR headset. In other words, if the user is looking straight ahead, there's no reason to have the periphery in focus and rendering at full speed.

While the Vive Pro Eye is aimed at the enterprise segment, the Cosmos will target enthusiasts.

Even the flip up cover of the HTC Vive Cosmos feels like a nod to the movie Ready Player One, similar to the movie poster that shows the protagonist flipping in and out of the virtual worlds. Additionally, it offers the Vive experience without the use of any external tracking devices. That's right. This headset tracks your eye movements.

HTC has a new PC HMD on the way in the shape of the Vive Cosmos. The Cosmos should apparently work with more than just high-end gaming PCs, but no more details were shared about that. I got to try out the game myself and the eye tracking worked pretty much as expected, though it was only available with the in-game menus - the gameplay itself still required a controller, which in this case was mounted on a plastic bat.

The most notable product announcement is the HTC Vive Pro Eye (shown above), an upgraded version of its popular Vive Pro. The gamer-friendly, versatile design is useful in all sorts of VR content.

Cathay Pacific Will Honor $16K Tickets Sold for $675
In a tweet the company admitted the mistake and said they "look forward to seeing you on board with your ticket issued". Air Canada is now involved in a class action lawsuit at home for refusing to honor a similar price mistake in 2015.

Last but not least, HTC is working with both Firefox and Amazon AWS to reinvent the web for VR.

"We found that over 85 percent 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, general manager of HTC Vive in the Americas.

The Vive Cosmos will run the Vive Reality System, a redesign of the Vive software that will make moving between VR experiences more seamless than before.

That's ranged from a belief that this brand could take on the iPhone with the HTC Desire (which it did) to charting new territory into virtual worlds with the Vive headset (which offered a possible, exciting view of the future rather than an awesome product we could buy right now).
