HTC's Creative Labs team also revealed Vive Reality System, a completely reimagined way for people to experience the virtual world-encompassing the total user experience from the moment a headset is put on to how content is interacted with.

Dell also announced a PC hardware partnership with Riot Games and League of Legends Esports, saying it was ushering in a new generation of PCs that will enable League pros to compete at a higher level and also standardise operational logistics for their global operations. Eye-tracking is a big deal for VR. Fans can experience the new Vive Pro Eye starting in 2019.

The Vive Pro Eye, which comes with built-in Tobii inside-out eye tracking technology and enhanced computing ability powered by chips from Nvidia, provide more intuitive interactions with visual control systems without controllers, O'Brien noted.

That gives way to even more possibilities, such as no longer being required to use additional controllers for menu navigation - users can just look at an option and the headset will automatically detect it.

Astronomers Detect Mysterious Radio Signals From Deep Space
The flashes only last for a milisecond but they are flung out with the same amount of energy the sun takes 12 months to produce. Instead it uses digital signal processing to "point" the telescope and reconstruct where the radio waves are coming from.

Adding eye-tracking to VR headsets is the next step towards improving the already impressive immersive experiences that VR headsets offer. Launching on April 5, VivePort Infinity will allow users to sign up and gain instant access to more than 500 titles in the store. With Viveport Infinity, members will be able to try hits from indie developers or shorter experiences they were reluctant to pay for while keeping their favorites like Seeking Dawn and Torn downloaded and ready to play. This service is available on any Vive device plus the Oculus Rift and other devices in the Wave Eco-system. For specifics, keep an eye on the HTC website and HTC Twitter account as the company plans to make the headset available sometime in the second quarter of 2019.

Price, launch date, and more information will be announced later this year.

In the framework of the global exhibition of electronics CES 2019 HTC told about prospects of development of the own device and the ecosystem of virtual reality. It will also be the first Vive headset to work with the Vive Reality System that will be a new design experience for VR.

As we jumped into our first demo, the Vive Pro Eye walked us through a brief setup where you adjust your IPD (interpupillary distance or the distance between your pupils) and then use your eyes to follow a small red dot that appears sporadically in different locations on the screen.
