Details

Operation:

Unlike other VR devices, the Fove understands that the human eyes can't take in all the details at once. If you look at objects in the foreground, the background objects are blurry, and vice versa. This eye tracking makes the Fove one of the best for gamers who want as real-to-life an experience as possible.

Instead of rendering an entire screen at high quality and sucking up processor power, Fove's eye-tracking software ensures that the objects you're looking at are rendered in high quality. The rest of the objects are allowed to blur, just as in real life. This means it won't use up so much processing power, making the device compatible with more PCs.

Features:

The Fove has a 2560 x 1440 2K display, ensuring crystal clear images and quality graphics. There is minimal pixelation ("screen door effect"), and you'll love how sharp the picture looks. With its 100-degree field of view, you are fully immersed in the world of your game/movie/TV show.

On the downside, the unit is bulky, protrudes a lot, and pinches/presses on your nose. It's not the most comfortable, so you may not be able to use it for long without a break. It is also only compatible with PC and must be connected via USB (meaning you can't stand or move around too much). Content is limited, but what there is is excellent.

Price:

The Fove will run you a whopping $500, making it one of the priciest kits. However, for PC gamers who plan to spend a lot of time playing, it is definitely a worthy option.
