The new virtual reality glasses deliver a more immersive and comfortable experience than its predecessors. In addition, thanks to the joint work with Microsoft and Valve, HP also promises great content compatibility on the device. “It is a new standard in virtual reality”, defines the manufacturer.
The HP website also points out that the Reverb G2 will hit the market soon and brings a field for the user to enter information and receive news about the new device. Unfortunately, the company did not give details about the price or specifications of the virtual reality glasses.
According to Engadget, the trend is for HP to invest heavily in the specifications of the Reverb G2. The first generation of the product stood out for bringing a resolution of 2,160 x 2,160 pixels per eye and, on Twitter, the company defined the new device as the next reference for the VR market.
The presentation of the Reverb G2 was also made at an opportune moment: the first images of the device appeared just on the day of the launch of Half-Life: Alyx, Valve’s virtual reality game that was received with widely positive reviews. Considering that the owner of Steam offered the game as a gift when purchasing certain virtual reality glasses, it may be that the new VR device from HP also brings the production as a gift. So far, however, nothing has been confirmed by the companies.
