HP has today confirmed that the company will bring another VR glasses on the market. The new model is marketed as HP Reverb and should score with a particularly high resolution. In addition, the design seems to be based on the Oculus Rift.
HP reverb presented with impressive resolution
HP Reverb is HP’s second Windows mixed-reality glasses. It controls inside-out tracking and will be delivered with trackable controllers. The special feature is the resolution: 2160 x 2160 are available for every eye. This is an impressive value, because the Oculus Rift, for example, only reaches 1080 x 1200 pixels per eye.
The new VR glasses from HP will use Fresnel lenses, but the manufacturer promises a larger field of view and a larger sweet spot than the predecessor. Unfortunately, HP will do without a mechanical IPD controller and set the glasses to 63 mm. The software should then be able to correct between 55 mm and 71 mm. The glasses are connected via DisplayPort 1.3 and USB 3.0 and Bluetooth is directly integrated so that the controllers can be connected.
Although HP is primarily aimed at companies with Reverb, consumers should also be able to order the glasses easily. As early as April, the new VR glasses will be offered for about $ 600. A special version for leather-covered companies, extra cables and extended support is offered for about $ 650.
