HTC unveils new VR headset with eye-tracking, unlimited content subscription

Tuesday 8 January 2019 | 09:50 CET | News
The Vive Pro Eye is an update of HTC's Vive Pro headset announced a year ago at CES and is expected to be available in Q2. The integrated eye tracking on the Vive Pro Eye gives users new levels of accessibility, including gaze-oriented menu navigation and removing the need for controllers. With the inclusion of eye tracking, the headset will allow businesses and developers to gather more data about their training environments, help optimize computer and VR performance, and offer product design and research groups increased feedback, HTC said.
