Don’t expect this in PSVR though.
Sony has disclosed a prototype for an 8K VR headset.
The prototype claims enhanced visual fidelity, diminished latency and OLED microdisplays.
Will not get far too energized about PSVR although: this headset is most likely supposed for reasons over and above gaming.
The prototype was developed by Sony R&D (not PlayStation) and was unveiled in a video as section of ‘Sony Engineering Day’.
Engineers Yasuko Ishihara and Kei Kimura show the improved visuals which use OLED microdisplays for every single eye. Individually they present 4K visuals jointly 8K.
In the demonstration, that implies looking at the high-quality depth of leather automobile seats and other textures shut to actuality. The use of microdisplays also indicates a scaled-down, lighter headset.
Lessened latency also usually means smoother and more practical motion.
The movie implies the headset would be utilised for engineering reasons, professional medical coaching, and producing guidance, as properly as dwell entertainment.
It appears this prototype possible will not likely be for general customers, at the very least not for a whilst, so really don’t expect this tech in PSVR. Nevertheless, it can be exciting to see how significantly VR technological innovation has occur.
Sony showed off its new PSVR controllers back again in March. With any luck , we will not have to hold out extensive for a lot more info.
