Pico, a Chinese company that was bought by ByteDance (the conglomerate behind the platform TikTok) today announced Pico 4, a new viewer that will be released in the coming months in Japan, South Korea but also Europaat a price from 429 euros.
Pico 4, the VR viewer that wants to compete with Quest 2
Pico 4 is a viewer of wireless virtual reality with a light and elegant design, very ergonomic controls (and similar to those of PS VR2) and a screen with a wide range of vision, 105º, which will contribute to immersion.
Pico launched earlier this year the Pico Neo 3 Linkthe first to arrive in Europe, but it was just a prototype of Pico 4, which improves everything (and in fact owners of Pico Neo 3 Link will receive a 35% discount on Pico 4).
Its great advantage is pancake style lenses They allow it to be much more comfortable and offer better visibility than the Quest 2, which uses the more traditional fresnel lenses (just like the future PS VR2). This will allow the lenses to be lighter, 295 grams.
With the head strap, order 586 gramosaccording to Pico’s figures, but by accommodating the battery in the back of the headbetter distributes weight for more comfort, and the closeness of the lenses to the eyes thanks to pancake lenses can help make your range of vision (105º) appear greater than it is.
These are the most successful external hard drives in Amazon Spain in different storage capacities.
The Pico 4’s processor is the same as the Quest 2 and most VR headsets, a Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2, and they offer a resolution of 2160×2160 per eye.
