SAN FRANCISCO – Pico Interactive, Inc. (www.pico-interactive.com) will show a new, all-in-one VR headset at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), set to take place from June 13th through 15th. The Pico Goblin was created with the consumer in mind. Its design gives users instant access to VR games, apps and videos, and is completely untethered, making it ultra-portable.
The Goblin takes advantage of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor to deliver a lightweight, fully immersive VR experience for gamers. The two high-resolution 70Hz VR displays combine to give users a resolution of 2.5K, making the Goblin well suited for casual gaming, as well as for watching VR videos and engaging with interactive CGI experiences. Equipped with three-degrees-of-freedom (3DoF) head tracking technology, the Goblin provides total freedom of head movement for users, and comes with a 3DoF tracking controller to navigate within virtual environments.
“We created the Pico Goblin to liberate people from clunky VR technology,” explains Ennin Huang, vice president of design, Pico Interactive Inc. “There’s no complex technical set-ups, attached wires or need for a Phone. As a consumer first company, we want to make the barriers to entry for completely stand alone VR headsets as low as possible, while offering flexible options for users. The Pico Goblin will do just that, and at an affordable price.”
E3 attendees will get the first-look opportunity with the Pico Goblin hardware along with a selection of gaming and entertainment applications. The Pico Neo CV also will be available for demonstrations with a selection of games.
