After successfully releasing the world’s first VR eye tracking add-on——“aGlass DK I” in Beijing in November 2016, the presale of “aGlass DK II” started in June 2017. And the first batch of products was sold out within one month.
Early this year, HTC released a new-generation VIVE Pro. Compared with VIVE, VIVE Pro is more advanced and appealing. So can aGlass DK II be compatible with VIVE Pro?
Tongbing Huang, the CEO & founder of 7Invensun said, though there are some structural modifications and performance promotions on the new VIVE helmet, it has been verified that aGlass DK II could still be easily used on VIVE Pro. The only difference between HTC VIVE and VIVE Pro is that the USB port on VIVE Pro is changed from Type A to Type C. The original aGlass DKⅡ connector won’t work on the new VIVE Pro. By simply using an USB adapter, the DK II could be connected to the new goggles without any impact on the user experience. Therefore, the consumers should have no concern on purchasing aGlass DK II.
Along with consumer edition, 7Invensun is also providing industrial edition aGlass DK II to the developers of VIVE Pro. In addition to the standard package of aGlass DK II in the market, Advanced Edition, Analytical Edition and Ultimate Edition are also available, with which more information and functions, such as pupil diameter, pupil location, eyelid distance, iris recognition and customizable calibration are accessible. 7Invensun could also develop customized solutions according to the demand of its partners.
As a member of HTC VIVE X accelerator and an accessories manufacturer in the eco-system, 7Invensun maintains intimate relationship with HTC. 7Invensun will continue releasing appealing eye-tracking accessories for HTC goggles.
