Backers will soon be able to test the’ M2 test units ‘ of the Pimax 8K and give their impressions publicly, without being restricted by any confidentiality agreement.
Next week the exclusive meetings for Pimax 8K and 5K backers begin. The first of them will be in Berlin, specifically from August 31 to September 2. The rest are still to be decided by a vote of the backers.
Part of the testers (also backers) will also attend to broadcast the event by streaming through their youtube channels to the backers who can not attend:
Thomas Poersch | Youtube channel VoodooDE| (in English or perhaps only in German)
Marcin Lammi | Youtube channel SweViver | (in English)
Sebastian Ang | Youtube Channel Mixed Reality TV | (in English)
Which is especially interesting, as it will be the first time that everyone, backer or not, will have access to the impressions of the last M2 test units of the pimax 8K, the M2, without restrictions by non-disclosure agreements (NDAs), since backers will be able to openly talk about their impressions and anything they like (or don’t like) and publish it wherever they want, as long as they put their name and backer number. The point is that, at a minimum, those impressions will be publicly streamed through testers ‘ youtube channels.
The demonstrations to the backers would begin on September 1st from four in the afternoon until ten in the evening, after the demonstrations to the testers themselves and answering their questions. The day 2 of September would be dedicated entirely to the backers from ten in the morning until seven in the afternoon.
For now, there are already 100 people registered for demonstrations that will take place, in which they will use three test units: two Pimax 8K M2 and a Pimax 5K M2?. All teams would have nVidia GTX 1080 Ti graphics, although this last data is not yet confirmed.
The purpose of the meeting, according to the company:
- Show the potential of 8K with recommended graphics cards and games.
- That you can compare the 8K with other VR headsets (probably Vive Pro).
- Show how to adjust settings for the best experience.
- Collect requirements and suggestions.
- Have the Pimax team answer backers ‘ questions face-to-face.
The downside is that each of these demonstrations will only last between 5 and 10 minutes, very little time to analyze prototypes in depth after initial printing, or to test them with different experiences.
Will problems come to light? It will certainly be interesting to see the reactions to the new M2 test unit, not yet evaluated by the testers; especially with the Pimax team present, answering the questions, and all broadcast live via streaming on youtube.
