Forget other VR headsets, SIGGRAPH has finally been unveiled and it’s not your ordinary VR headset. Where other VR headsets are using Oculus and Vive, StarOne made a major leap by introducing eye-tracking.

With an expanded field of view to the game, let’s find out what more has this headset in store for you.

StarVR Headset

What is it?

StarOne is a Virtual Reality headset that just unveiled at the conference in Vancouver. will be available soon. The price has not been revealed as yet. The headset is a joint venture between PC manufacturer Acer and developer Starbreeze based in Taipei.

Features

Equipped with high-tech features, StarVR has already made an impression in the market. The headset has all the features than any VR headset would have except that they are up a notch.

The ocular

The headset has custom fresnel lenses with a pair of AMOLED panels. Each of the panels has dimensions of 1830×1464 pixels. This makes a total of 5.4 million pixels on the display. It has clearly taken a lead from Vive Pro with 4.6 million pixels.

Its field of view is 210 degrees horizontal and 130 degrees vertical. Sources tell it has more than 16 pixels per degree and which is significantly better than Vive Pro; previously the best in town.

Eye-tracking

StarVR has Tobii eye-tracking. This feature requires an additional step before it can be used. The additional step is a short calibration that also measures the distance between your eyes. The distance is different for everyone and the headset needs to be adjusted for a perfect view. So with this headset, the problem of rendering the image correctly won’t arise.

The headset is also equipped with foveated rendering which tracks the user’s eye movements allowing you to see every bit of details through the frame. This is a major level up as a good VR should be able to view details with the tiniest of intricacies.

Lightweight and Multi-user friendly

The headset weighs 450 grams without the head strap and 5.9-meter cable. StarVR One XT; its other version weighs even less. Its semi-rigid headband is equipped with one dial 3-way adjustment mechanism that allows you to put on the headset extremely easily.

StarOne vs. Vive Pro

If you ask anyone about the best VR Headset there is in the market, we’d definitely say Vive Pro until now. StarOne is a step ahead of Vive Pro in its game and commercial scale businesses have already set their eyes on it.

StarOne is better than Vive Pro because:

  • Higher dimension for the field of view
  • Lighter in weight
  • Fully integrated Tobii eye-tracking
