Last year, HP launched a Windows MR Mixed Reality headset called Reverb. Now, the company is previewing the next generation of products on Steam. Although no more information has been disclosed, it is known to support the Microsoft-led Windows MR platform. Working with Valve and Microsoft, HP prides itself on setting new standards in VR to deliver an immersive, comfortable, and compatible VR experience.
In contrast, last year’s HP Reverb unit had a single-eye resolution and field of view of 2160 x 2160 pixels / 114 degrees, respectively, while weighing only 430 grams. There is also an integrated headset with space audio and a dual microphone for summoning the assistant.
HP Reverb supports out-of-the-box, pre-paired motion controllers, Windows MR and Steam VR platforms, supplemented by removable, cleanable masks.
