Today’s Immersive VR Buzz: HP’s ‘Copper’ VR headset will boast extra-sharp displays

This was a very interesting BUZZ that I found today and wanted to share with you.

HP is working on a new virtual reality headset, which will be a part of Microsoft’s Mixed Reality program, according to a report from Road to VR.

The headset, codenamed Copper, is still being developed but promises a high-resolution display and a more comfortable, ergonomic design than the company’s previous models.

Copper will reportedly boast a pixel-dense display with a resolution of 2,160 x 2,160 per eye. That’s nearly double the pixel count of Samsung’s Odyessy+ headset, which had a 1,440 x 1,600 resolution display, and nearly three times as many pixels as the first generation Oculus Rift.

Copper’s display is also sharp enough that it won’t need to use a diffuser to obscure the “screen door effect” that occurs when there are visible gaps between pixels.

In addition to producing a better window into the world of VR, HP is also working on improving the wearability of its headset. Copper will reportedly feature a slimmer build and more ergonomic display.

Copper is designed to be lighter-weight than previous VR headsets and will use a top-strap rather than a halo-style headband for improved comfort.

HP is planning on marketing Copper as both a consumer and professional, enterprise product. The company hasn’t revealed any details as to when the device will be available or how much it will cost.

What is 360 VR Video?

360 video is a video that is recorded in all directions at the same time with multiple cameras. The videos are stitched together either internally in the camera or externally using special software.

It then forms one spherical video that is controlled by the viewer, enabling them to look up, down, right or left at their discretion.

Is 360 Video Virtual Reality?
