Pico Interactive, a Chinese manufacturer of VR products, has just shared an image of its upcoming Neo 3 virtual reality headset, the company’s next-generation flagship 6DoF consumer headset in Asia.
The image shoes a sleek white and gray headset with a rigid strap and a sturdy read head-mount mechanism for keeping the device firmly in place. The headset doesn’t have any visible headphones, telling us that sound outputted through the arm.
As far as the headset’s specifications go, there’s a lot to look forward to. At the heart of the headset is the Snapdragon XR2 platform, the world’s first purpose-built VR platform that leverages AI for massive power savings and optimized performance in order to enable unrivaled extended reality experiences.
Thanks to four wide-angle cameras, the Pico Neo 3 headset will be able to offer true millimeter-level positioning and tracking, as well as physical IPD adjustment with three settings. The headset’s cutting-edge curved screen can deliver a refresh rate of up to 90 Hz, and it’s made from a special material that should make it easy to clean.
Connectivity with the outside world is provided by WiFi 6, so there will be more than enough bandwidth even for the most immersive content out there.
“These innovative product developments follow our B and B+ funding rounds earlier this year,” said Henry Zhou, CEO of Pico Interactive in a statement. “From our new optical controller-tracking solution to complex environment positioning, the Neo 3 is building off of the Neo 2 to offer the latest technology to give users an amazing, immersive experience.”
Unfortunately, the Pico Neo 3 headset is intended exclusively for the Asian market. Its exact release date and price are yet to be specified.
