Now, new details at CES 2019 about a pair of upcoming Vive headsets make me even more confident that this is the VR hardware to get behind. Foveated rendering uses eye tracking to increase the quality of the image where you're looking.

Both the HTC Vive Pro Eye and the HTC Vive Cosmos will be available later in 2019. According to the original release information posted on the official HTC Vive blog, Vive Pro Eye is targeted at the enterprise market, where eye tracking has proven to have a considerable number of benefits, including accessibility, performance and overall improvement potential for training applications. The world will flock to VR when you make the headsets easy to use, cheaper and less cumbersome, we have no doubt about that - but we need to believe that future is still on the way. The Cosmos, like the Vive Pro, has been created to be upgraded over time and may even eventually be able to pair and work with a smartphone and gain wireless functionality.

The Vive Pro Eye, a revised version of the Vive Pro, is equipped with eye-tracking hardware.

This teaser video is brief, and HTC hasn't put out that many more details, but the Vive Cosmos seems to be a much more streamlined VR headset. And using its Mozilla partnership, it hopes to bring more web content to VR customers, including plans to launch the first Vive-dedicated VR browser.

Despite the heavy focus on enterprise, though, the technology was showcased at CES 2019 using MLB Home Run Derby VR, a video game now available on Steam VR. However, HTC Vive Pro Eye VR is the next step in virtual reality since it's boasting built-in eye-tracking, along with the functions of the already released Vive Pro.

The Vive Cosmos is a different story. It would be nice to see the Vive Pro Eye follow suit with higher resolution displays of their own.

With Vive Infinity you'll have access to more than 500 games AND apps rather than the usual five to 60 you get with Viveport Subscription.

The Vive Cosmos will be the first Vive headset to feature the Vive Reality System. This will become available on April 5. HTC also announced an unlimited Viveport subscription for VR content, called Viveport Infinity, apart from the new Vive Reality System.

HTC claims that the new Vive VR headset, meant for professional VR use cases, will drastically enhance the user experience by eliminating the need for controllers and using the eye movements for executing commands, which can prove to be particularly useful when it comes to VR gaming. They started their presentation by unveiling the Vive Pro Eye.
