Pico Interactive introduces stronger, lighter and more capable VR headset

Pico Interactive has launched the Pico G2, its second generation virtual reality (VR) headset that is stronger, lighter and sports more capabilities than its predecessor.

Pico G2 uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 XR platform with 4+64GB of memory with up to 256GB of micro-SD card expansion for stronger connectivity to deliver a smooth VR experience.

Two fast response LCD screens with 3K binocular resolution, a 75Hz refresh rate, and a 101-degree frame of view improve overall lens clarity while maintaining a large field of view.  A monocular RGB camera at the front allows for pass-through views into the space in front and hand gesture inputs for menu selections.

Compared with the Goblin 1, Pico G2 has a 25 percent clearer display, improved rear-mounted battery design, and is 40 percent lighter, weighing just 268g.

It utilises the VIVE WAVE VR Open Platform to bring a better experience and more VR content to Pico G2 users, Pico’s partnership with HTC Vive also provides Pico G2 users access to the VIVEPORT content platform.

The new device will be available from September.
