HP began its virtual reality headsets ambitions back in 2017. It started with HP Windows MR Headset, and this product was made to compete with some of the best VR headsets in the market like HTC VIVE and Oculus Rift. This headset operated on Microsoft mixed reality platform. With rapid developments in the Virtual Reality Industry, HP has not remained behind. It has just rolled out its new VR headset, HP Reverb. This new headset has outstanding features, and this is a clear indication HP is ready to outdo Samsung Odyssey and HTC VIVE pro. It’s a massive improvement from the earlier model. However, this new model is set to cost more as compared to the previous. It will retail at $599, and customers are expected to pay an extra $150 on landing around late April.
HP reverb has taken the lead in the market
on the resolution feature. Its resolution is sharp and more detailed when
compared to some of the best VR headsets in the market. It has a resolution of
2160*2160 on each eye panel. This display resolution is twice better when
compared to Samsung Odyssey+ and HTC VIVE. HP has also improved the field of
view of the headset providing a much broader and clearer picture. It has
achieved this by creating asymmetrical lenses which offer a large field of view
compared to the previous symmetrical lenses. Compared with the last HP Windows
Mixed Reality headset which is blocky, HP Reverb has a sleeker design. It has a
look similar to Oculus Go. Its greatly reduced the size of the frame and covers
a smaller area of the face significantly. In addition to that, it has a
three-point band that is more firm compared to the previous halo-style
headband. Other features include an inbuilt Bluetooth to connect it with the
controllers and inbuilt microphones.
