Two areas of improvement for today’s virtual reality headsets are display resolution and field of view. Pimax, a VR company based out of Shanghai, are hoping to solve those with its 8K headset that it’s launching on Kickstarter. We go hands-on with their 8K prototype to see what game and text content look like under this display, and how immersion is improved with a 200-degree FOV. Here are our impressions and an interview with Pimax’s CEO.
