According to Gizmodo, "the first benefit results from foveated rendering, which takes advantage of the headset's eye-tracker to adjust which parts of a virtual scene get priority when processing graphics".

HTC has once again used CES to announce a couple of updates to its Vive VR system.

HTC's virtual reality division, Vive, has announced new high-end tethered and self-contained virtual reality devices, the Vive Pro Eye and Vive Cosmos respectively, along with new software offerings including an all-you-can-eat software subscription. Being able to put what may be small insignificant gestures into a VR experience could make all the difference when trying to attain proper immersion. Just ask the Major League Baseball (MLB) that debuted the feature in their "MLB Home Run Derby VR" game.

Of course the most advanced headsets are nothing without quality content to experience with them.

HTC is claiming that it's added over 1,000 titles since the last CES but not all these games are available to all users - that's why Vive is introducing Viveport Infinity - described as "the Netflix of VR". Firefox will be the default internet browser for Vive, Vive Pro and the upcoming VIVE Cosmos. Sporting the deep blue of the Vive Pro and Eye, the Cosmo looks familiar and foreign from anything HTC has previously released. But with one simple change, the headset becomes even more useful, improving performance and accessibility to the point where you might not even need handheld controllers anymore.

This is huge, because with the current status of VR content, once you're done playing games like Superhot VR, Moss in VR, and Fallout 4 VR, it often feels like there's not much left to do. "We'll have more to share in the coming months". Once robust hand tracking is ready to go, we could be enjoying entirely controller free VR experiences.

This is most appropriate to the Vive Cosmos as it is designed keeping in mind a certain target of people who are enthusiastic in buying headsets but do not so owing to their complexity.

About HTC VIVEHTC Vive is the creator of the unprecedented PC-based virtual reality system, the Vive, which was built and optimized for room-scale VR and true-to-life interactions. Though HTC could also wait for something like E3, which is a gamers' trade-show and where VIVE might make a bigger impact.
