The world’s first 8K VR headset is designed and will be executed by Pimax, the Chinese startup. Pimax 8K might be the first such Virtual Reality headset to get into record books. With the modular design that works with your current accessories allows easy implementation of new technologies. e.g. hand motion, inside-out tracking, wireless, eye tracking, etc., The Pimax 8k VR is based on that concept.
One of the reviews also said “The 200° FOV is something you won’t be able to go back from, using my Oculus now feels like I’m viewing the world through a scuba mask! The screen/lens combo is so far ahead of the current Oculus and Vive it’s ridiculous. No screen door, little to no rays or ghosting… no chromatic aberration or “ripples” from a Fresnel lens, no visible subpixels, no noticeable smearing Despite looking bulky.
Pimax 8K Features
The hand motion module, eye tracking, scent enabling module, a wireless transmission module, Customised VR Frame, Cooling Fan, Head Band, Head Strip are the main attributes of Pimax.
It also has the extendable interface along with the headphone the earphones. The interface is DP1.4, USB 3.0 with the refresh rate of 90 Hz per eye.
