HP Reverb is finally available and HTC Cosmos is nearly there

I wrote an article in june about the availability of the HP Reverb headset … in the US !
You can now buy the pro edition in Europe for less than 740€ tax included.

I was very impressed when I tested the prototype at Laval Virtual. The graphic quality is really good thanks to the 2160×2160 resolution per eye and it is really comfortable to wear.

Just to remind you which kind of headset it is :

  • it is a WMR headset easy to plug (only 2 wires : Display port 1.3 & USB 3).
  • with Bluetooth adapter integrated (to pair the controllers with the headset).
  • with 2 controllers (the same as first generation of WMR controllers, not so ergonomic but which do the job).

 

The Vive Cosmos which HTC announced a long time ago should be available soon (3rd of october 2019 but you can pre-order it right now for 799 € tax included). All specifications are not revealed but you will be able to replace inside-out tracking by a « lighthouse sensors face » to make it compatible with lighthouse tracking (I don’t know the price of such accessory).

No fresh news about the Acer ConceptD OJO (reverb-like VR headset by Acer)
