A new standalone MR headset that is equipped with “4K” OLED displays was one of the products that Sony presented today at CES. The headset has not yet been given a name, but the business has stated that it would be released this year and is intended for creatives who are working on 3D content.
According to reports, Sony’s unannounced standalone MR headset is powered by Qualcomm’s XR2+ Gen 2 engine and is rumored to include “4K” OLED microdisplays measuring 1.3 inches in depth. It is still unclear whether Sony is referring about 16 megapixels (4,000 × 4,000) each eye or something else.
However, taking into consideration that the XR2+ Gen 2 is able to allegedly power two screens with a resolution of up to 18.5 megapixels (4,100 × 4,100) apiece, it is possible that this is really the case. In order to obtain clarification, we have contacted the company.
Passthrough video, a visor that can be flipped up, and a pair of controllers that are completely unique are all included in the Sony MR headset. It’s possible that “pair” is not the appropriate word to use because the two are significantly distinct from one another.
The first is a controller that resembles a pointer and is operated with the index finger, while the second is a little gadget that resembles a ring and is operated with the thumb.Three-dimensional creatives are the target audience for Sony’s headset, which is being marketed as an enhanced method of interacting with and producing three-dimensional content such as models, architecture, and design reviews.
Siemens and Sony are working together in close partnership to ensure that the NX CAD software developed by Siemens is compatible with the headset.
