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.
