January 8, 2019

LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 8, 2019--Today, the most crowdfunded VR brand in the world, Pimax, will showcase its 8K series VR headsets with brand new Pimax controllers, designed to free your hand for an open-palm immersive experience. The headsets are embedded with Leap Motion and 7invensun technology and together the three brands open up the era for VR 2.0 and bring a truly immersive experience for VR enthusiasts.

Pimax is exhibiting the new tech with Leap Motion and 7invensun by demo-ing VR games including Contractor and Nvidia’s Funhouse at Tech East, LVCC, South Halls 1-2, Ground Level, Booth #21826, and co-exhibiting with Cybershoes at LVCC, South Hall, Booth #21631.

Kevin Henderson, Head of US Operations, said: “Science fiction stories like Minority Report and more recently Ready Player One gave us a glimpse into the future for immersive experiences and UI control. Today we’re ready to prove that era is closer than ever before by bringing VR 2.0 to the industry.”

“As a contributor to VR 2.0, we are closely working with our partners to bring innovation to the industry and finally give VR enthusiasts and gamers what they have been dreaming of,” he continued.

Intuitive hand-tracking for the ultimate immersive experience

Integrated hand motion tracking brings the industry into the era of 2.0. Pimax has partnered with Leap Motion to bring cutting edge hand-tracking technology to virtual reality. All the Pimax 5K Plus, 8K, and 5K BE headsets now have Leap Motion’s embedded modules, which feature a 180-degree FoV.

Eye-tracking technology for high viewing performance

Foveated rendering technology reduces GPU load power consumption and dizziness, which brings high viewing performance to VR. Pimax is now closely working with 7invensun, a strategic partner focusing on R&D and innovation in eye-tracking technologies to achieve this goal, as well as NVIDIA - the inventor of GPU.

Ergonomically comfortable hand-controllers with new industrial design

Pimax will showcase a prototype of the upcoming open-palm controllers, which are compatible with the 8K VR headset. The prototypes on the stand at CES include both the thumbstick and trackpad version, which boast a much more natural fit than previous models and are compatible with multiple devices including the Steam VR tracking 1.0 and 2.0.
