CES 2017 is finally in full swing in Las Vegas and there are some awesome things on show.
Lenovo have announced a $300~ headset with some pretty nice screen specs (1,440 x 1,440 OLED per eye), but... they only showed a non-functional prototype. Hmm...
What do you think about it? It looks like it's being aimed at users who want to plug and play with their laptops or work PCs for general VR entertainment and business use.
HTC announced a new deluxe headstrap for the Vive with integrated headphones. Good for those who don't like wearing their cans alongside the headset!
Also announced was a Viveport subscription plan. This will allow developers to license their games for use in business and enterprise as well as VR arcades, but also allow players to try games out before fully committing to their price tag. You can sign up over here for a preview of the programme.
There's also the Vive Tracker, which you can bolt on to anything and have it tracked by the Lighthouses! This could be really cool for gun accessories, though I can't wait to see what else people come up with. These will be available to developers, with details about how to get hold of one for these purposes to come.
There's an official blog post about all of the Vive news over here.
While this is an AR product, I have to say that I'm going nuts for the cyberpunk design of ODG's new glasses. I'd wear them!
Lumus' work, too, looks amazing! I welcome our dystopian tech future, how long will it be until we have embedded comm-links and the government can hack our eyes?
Hoo boy, that was a long post! Anything else you've seen at CES that you're looking forward to? It's awesome to see the direction that the tech industry is going in.
