The Pico Neo 3 VR headset is apparently out now in China.
- Snapdragon XR2 (same as Quest 2)
- 1832 x 1920 per eye (same as Quest 2)
- 4 camera inside out tracking
- optical tracking 6DOF controllers (the Pico Neo 2 used magnetic tracking)
- Wifi 6
- 90Hz curved screen
- 5300mAh battery (Quest 2 is 3640mAh)
- display port for native PC vr (THIS is how to do a hybrid!)
- Nvidia CloudXR for wifi streaming of OpenXR apps.
- Pico Link for wifi streaming of SteamVR apps.
- Hand tracking
In fact most of it (specs, look, etc) seem extremely similar to a Quest 2.
In China (where Facebook is banned so the Quest 2 isn't much use), the Pico Neo 3 is a consumer headset. Models range from $390us to $470us.
In the rest of the world, the Pico Neo 3 will be an enterprise headset. The Pico Neo 3 Pro at $699us and Pico Neo 3 Pro Eye (with Tobii eye tracking) at $899us will be available soon for businesses.
The camera tracking coverage is 238 x 195 degrees.
Very interesting interview (translated from Chinese) with Pico's CEO about how the tracking system (head and controllers) has evolved. Lots of interesting details in there. https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&u=https://pu6wskf3ezpag6pcq2gan44ioa-ac4c6men2g...
Pico Neo 3 hand tracking:
28 degrees of freedom tracked.
One thing to remember: while the Pico Neo 3 Pro is $699us, comparing it to the $399us Quest 2 isn't really fair. It's actually competing with the $799us (plus $180us per year to renew support) Quest 2 Business.
