Pimax announced the launch of their campaign today for their new 200 degree FOV 8K VR headset, designed for VR futurists. Pimax 8K allows users to experience VR with peripheral vision while solving the problem of screen door effect and motion sickness.
After blowing everyone’s minds with the release of the first 4K VR headset, Pimax is set to stun the tech world yet again by doubling the field of view to 200 degrees, almost matching the human view of 220 degrees, and offering six time to the resolution provided by most VR headsets. Providing an absolute sensory experience, the Pimax 8K VR headset combines stunning graphics and motion with high-end audio.
The new and improved VR headset is augmented with better transitions while presenting no lag in viewing panoramic images and videos. This means users will be able to use Pimax 8K to experience up to two hours worth of movies and games without experiencing the motion sickness that many people suffer from when using VR technology.
Pimax 8K also reduces the ‘screen door effect’, where users begin to see fine lines between pixels, so that a more natural environment can be enjoyed. With positional tracking and hand motion sensitivity, the Pimax 8K VR headset moves with you, creating a completely immersive rotating audiovisual experience and providing a more realistic feel when interacting with virtual environments.
The headset has a very lightweight design and soft padding which allows for a comfortable fit. To combat eye fatigue, the Pimax 8K features IPD (Interpupillary distance) adjustment and an auto de-misting system in the headset design.
Pimax is aiming to reach $200,000 in funding on Kickstarter, with prices starting at $399.
