The announcement of the VIVE Cosmos was the highlight of HTC VIVE's conference at CES 2019.

The company unveiled a new Vive Pro Eye headset, which has eye tracking features built directly in, eliminating the need for external controllers. That means that no matter what direction your eyes are looking on the screen, you will always be seeing a sharp image instead of having to turn your head and keep your eyes locked forward. Sporting the deep blue of the Vive Pro and Eye, the Cosmo looks familiar and foreign from anything HTC has previously released.

"This year, Vive has set out to bring everyday computing tasks into VR for the first time", said HTC Vive vice president Michael Almeraris in a statement.

Virtual reality is taking off in a big way. The Cosmos should apparently work with more than just high-end gaming PCs, but no more details were shared about that. Announced earlier today (or last night for those of you in the UK), the Vive Cosmos is the latest headset from HTC, and it's been designed with top quality comfort and ease of use in mind. With the all new materials are soft, light and also breathable, this is a VR headset created to fit you.

If you've ever used a virtual reality headset, you know that it tracks a lot of things including your head and hands to ensure a seamless, immersive experience.

HTC General Manager, Americas, Dan O'Brien, positioned the Eye hardware as a great move for enterprise users. The new hardware enables experiences that aren't possible without tracking the user's eyes, including gaze-oriented menu navigation and the ability to control the VR experience without using controllers.

HTC says it plans to make the Vive Pro Eye available to developers later this year, and it's already been working with a select group of partners on experiences for the new headset. The gamer-friendly, versatile design is useful in all sorts of VR content.

Announced by HTC stalwart Drew Bamford, who's now VP of Creative Labs within the brand, it promises to be the next step in virtual reality in terms of getting access to VR on the go - but right now, that's a mysterious promise.
