HTC's Project Proton is a preview of its next-gen VR headsets
HTC Project Proton concept VR headset is a preview of its next-gen VR headsets While HTC is betting its VR future on the modular Vive Cosmos, for now, it’s also been working on next-gen lightweight headsets, under the title “Project Proton,” that CEO Yves Maitre said will resemble “really, really close to normal glasses.”
Well, judging by the renders we received, this is debatable, but these wearables certainly seem more compact than the current crop of VR devices.
In a statement sent to Engadget, a company rep said: “Project Proton is a prototype of a future XR glasses-style device from HTC Vive that we hope to hear feedback on from the community as we continue to work on the product.”
We have absolutely no info on specs, but Project Proton does confirm HTC’s intention to shift focus to mixed reality use cases, as well as adding 5G connectivity be it internal or external to its future headsets.
The HTC Project Proton concept VR headset is being designed to be powered by an “external processing module” such as a smartphone or similar.
As you would expect for a concept very little information is available and no specifications, pricing or availability dates have been discussed as yet by HTC, but the Sooners more information is released for the next generation of VR headsets from HTC we will keep you up to speed as always.
