HTC is releasing its PC-powered Vive Cosmos VR headset next month. Originally unveiled earlier this year at CES, the Cosmos is HTC’s latest bid at a mainstream VR headset. The Cosmos does not require external sensors and uses six video sensors for motion tracking. HTC has also upgraded the LCD panels, with a combined 2,880 x 1,700 resolution, a 110-degree field-of-view, and even a 90 Hz refresh rate. HTC’s Vive Cosmos is also the company’s first VR headset to ship with the company’s new Vive Reality System, instead of SteamVR. HTC is opening up pre-orders immediately, and the Cosmos will ship on October 3rd priced at 699 USD (939 CAD).
