HTC is one of the world's leading companies when it comes to VR (virtual reality) technology and therefore, no one should be shocked to find out that HTC's panel at CES 2019 was used to show off the company's latest VR innovations.

HTC reported that its Cosmos VR headset would have "the capability to be powered by more than a traditional gaming PC", although that's a vague statement and the company did not offer further details. Eye-tracking is a big deal for VR.

That gives way to even more possibilities, such as no longer being required to use additional controllers for menu navigation - users can just look at an option and the headset will automatically detect it. While this isn't necessarily new to the HTC Vive, eye tracking is now a core feature with full, official support.

With the introduction of Cosmos, HTC aims to redefine how VR is accessed by offering a headset that is quick to setup and use and can be taken on the go to new play environments.

The HTC Vive Pro Eye will be launching this April, according to HTC.

The headset will allow to abandon the use of base stations, thanks to six built-in cameras. Currently, there is no word on the pricing and availability of the new HTC VR headsets, however, we will keep you updated on the same.

Probably the most interesting hardware announcement came in the form of the HTC Vive Cosmos which is being described as a "consumer-friendly" headset which will be easier to set up for the average consumer.

Price, launch date, and more information will be announced later this year.

"Our philosophy has always been focused on developing great products and experiences that create a natural and effortless bridge from the real world to the virtual world and with Vive Reality System we set out to reimagine Vive's core software experience to meet these needs", said Drew Bamford, VP, Creative Labs, HTC Vive.

If you own an all-in-one headset using Vive Wave, you can install Firefox Reality by searching for it in the Viveport store. Check out everything announced during the HTC Vive press conference. Vive owners will also get access to Firefox Reality's "immersive web experiences" - games and other activities that are available through the browser's homepage.
