Sony officially introduced the PlayStation VR2, the new virtual reality glasses designed to work together with the PlayStation 5the latest generation console from the Japanese company.
The announcement of this new product was made through a statement signed by Hideaki Nishino, one of the executives in charge of the platform’s experience segment.
In the text, which was accompanied by images of the new glasses, Nishino offered details about the design whose appearance is inspired by the forms present in the PS5.
“PS VR2 glasses design was inspired by the look of the PS5 family of products. When our design team created the PS5 console, they also had the next-generation VR headset in mind, so you’ll notice some similarities in appearance,” Nishino said.
He also indicated that during the design phase they took into account the comments of the users about the positive characteristics present in the first generation of virtual reality glasses. For this reason they decided to carefully balance the weight of the viewer, while maintaining the single strap style to secure the device to the wearer.
The PlayStation VR2 also incorporate new features such as the ability to adjust the glasses to the face to improve the quality of the experience of the user and avoid any type of blurred vision when playing.
A striking aspect of the device presented by Sony is the fact that it is capable of displaying images at a 4K HDR definition, which offers amazing video quality when playing.
“The PS VR2 system comes in a simple single-cable configuration so you can connect to your games right out of the box,” the company said.
Another innovative element that the lenses incorporate is the fact that are capable of eye tracking. This means that the simple movement of the user’s eye is translated into an action that is reflected in the game, which allows video games to be more immersive.
One aspect that is still unknown is whether the developers of Sony’s new virtual reality system made security adjustments to prevent potential attacks by hackers.
This arises as a result of an investigation carried out by scientists from Rutgers University-New Brunswick which discovered that most virtual reality glasses can be used by hackers to obtain personal information from their victims. Among the affected equipment was the previous generation of virtual reality glasses.
