Pimax Releasing New Technology to Enable “VR 3.0” Industry Adoption | News

SAN FRANCISCO, October 22, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Pimax Innovation, a technology company specializing in advanced virtual reality (VR) hardware, announces new hardware that they believe defines the technical concepts for VR 3.0 and entry into a fully immersive metaverse.

“Metaverse” represents the core of the next generation Internet. This concept has gradually developed into a consensus in the VR industry and is spurring the telecommunications, media and technology (TMT) industries to a rapid adoption as the “Metaverse” is only accessible via VR devices.

Pimax will host an online conference on October 25NS, 2021 at 10 a.m. PDT where the new technology is presented and how the VR 3.0 software can be implemented. The presentation will also be attended by a number of Pimax partners who will attend and discuss their plans for new technologies.

At the conference, Pimax Innovation will present the concept of VR3.0 for the first time together with the corresponding product roadmap. Pimax has always been known for groundbreaking high-end technology, often introduced years before similar hardware was launched. Many hardcore VR gamers from around the world use Pimax headsets as their primary drivers. VR 3.0-level products will create a new immersion standard that it is hoped will stimulate the market to innovate further.

*The following Excerpt is from the Pimax Frontier presentation Script that explains the three defining properties of VR 3.0


This means that you are so completely immersed in the VR environment that your brain is constantly pretending that you are present in another world. We didn’t have the technology until recently, and now we have it.

A VR 3.0 device must have specifications that achieve a highly consistent sense of presence as close as possible to natural human vision. Six degrees of freedom enable an essential sense of space that we have when we move naturally and see objects in reality.


In the short term, this means that you can feel more like yourself in VR thanks to various tracking technologies that can include your head, eyes, face, hands, fingers, and even your whole body. Now more of your actions can be captured and then seen in VR so that you recognize yourself better. You will get really confident with your VR headset.

And if you thought about it for a moment, you would be more like not only yourself but other people as well. All interactions suddenly involve eye contact, microexpressions, hand and body gestures, these are the non-verbal methods that make up 93% of our communication in the real world. Relationships between people in VR become closer and resemble real-life interactions.


Freedom in VR 3.0 means being able to choose how you want to enjoy VR, but without compromise. Regardless of whether you want to access VR wirelessly or wired, inside-out or outside-in, PC-VR or standalone. The experience should remain satisfactory and consistent.

Many functions that you would want in VR devices are now within reach in VR 3.0. To gain freedom means to have opportunities. It enables us to think the impossible, discover the undiscovered, and take action when we want to transform environments in VR. Freedom is essential for VR 3.0 because it opens the way to the future.
