A new version that raises the total resolution of the standalone device to 3840×2160 resolution (1920×2160 per eye).
Pico Interactive he has presented on the occasion of the CES a new version of its autonomous G2 viewer designed for companies, which in this case jumps from the 1440×1600 resolution per eye to the 1920×2160, which gives a combined resolution of 3840×2160. With the exception of the new screens (we do not know if they are LCD like those of the G2), the G2 4K it has the same design and the same features as the previous model: Snapdragon 835, 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage, Bluetooth 4.2, WiFi b/g/n/ac and support of the Pico and Vive Wave platforms, all with a weight of 278 grams.
“VR and AR continue to grow at the consumer level, but we believe there is much more untapped potential in using these cutting-edge technologies to elevate business. VR and AR use cases are limitless and our goal is to help businesses realize that with our products, including Pico G2 and Pico G2 4K viewers,” says Henry Zhou, CEO of Pico Interactive. “We are forging our own identity as a leading manufacturer of enterprise VR and AR hardware, while expanding the global market by offering bespoke products and options that few of our competitors offer at the moment.”
The device also has some new features such as the kiosk mode to use a single application and the option to control it only with the eye (without a controller of one hand), as well as a design with replaceable and easy to clean facial interfaces.
The company has recently been collaborating with other companies to include its viewer in different applications, such as the cases of NuEyes for the visually impaired, FlixBus to offer VR on certain bus trips and VRtuoso to create and view VR presentations (PowerPoint style) synchronously in multiple viewers.
Pico G2 4K will arrive in the United States in the first half of this year. At the moment there is no date for the rest of regions or details about their price.
