Pico, the Chinese company that specialises in stand alone all-in-one virtual reality (VR) headsets, has today unveiled its latest model called the Goblin.
The head-mounted display (HMD) uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor – like those found in the US Smasung Galaxy S7, HTC 10, OnePlus 3, LG G5 and many more – to deliver an immersive experience on the two 70Hz displays which give a combined resolution of 2.5K. The headset also comes equipped with three-degrees-of-freedom (3DoF) head-tracking and a 3DoF tracking controller.
“We created the Pico Goblin to liberate people from clunky VR technology,” said Ennin Huang, vice president of design, Pico Interactive Inc. “There’s no complex technical set-ups, attached wires or need for a Phone. As a consumer first company, we want to make the barriers to entry for completely stand alone VR headsets as low as possible, while offering flexible options for users. The Pico Goblin will do just that, and at an affordable price.”
The company has’t released any other details at present, mainly due to it debuting the HMD at next months Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) event in Los Angeles. E3 attendees will get the first-look opportunity with the Pico Goblin hardware along with a selection of gaming and entertainment apps. The flagship Pico Neo CV will also be available for demonstrations with a selection of games.
The Pico Neo CV was showcased at CES 2017 in January. It also features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor alongside 6DoF tracking, two 1.5K at 90Hz displays and built in Hi-Fi speakers.
E3 takes place from 13th – 15th June, and VRFocus will be there to bring you all the latest news and announcements.
