CES 2017: FOVE To Start Shipping Its Eye-Tracking VR Headset
FOVE, the creators of the world’s first eye tracking virtual reality headset, announced at the Consumer Electronics Show 2017 (CES) that they will begin shipping their cutting edge HMD around the world. After a successful pre-order campaign launched last fall, FOVE will begin shipping thousands of headsets to customers around the world beginning January 2017.
“This is the culmination of a two and half year adventure,” said Yuka Kojima, co-founder and CEO at FOVE. “We started FOVE as a small team back in 2014, and now we’re finally realizing an entirely new way for humans to interact with a virtual world." Kojima also announced that FOVE will focus exclusively on white headsets, another unique aspect to the FOVE 0. The black headsets were part of a limited edition launch wave of headsets, and Kojima mentioned that FOVE will stop selling them by the end of January.
FOVE fully supports SteamVR, the open-source platform championed by Valve. Users would be able to play over 250 titles that are currently available on the Steam distribution service. FOVE does not currently support VIVE’s Lighthouse tracking system. The headset will ship with its own position tracking camera and an extra foam faceplate for comfort.
