Do we know anything about how Pimax intend to implement this feature on a technical level?
Is Pimax intending to implement this like Varjo where any sw that wants to use this functionality has to be developed using the proprietary SDK?
If so, IRL usability will be close to 0 for gaming purposes.
What’s the current plan, given an intended release in less than 14 months?
Edit: I need to clarify that yes, it is possible to turn on the focus screens on a Varjo within any SteamVR title via software but that simply projects that part of the perceived image onto the FOV of the focus screens. Imagine a 55 inch 1080p screen and now you place a 16inch 8K screen onto the middle of that bigger screen, displaying exactly the content it would occlude, but at the same resolution as that otherwise occluded content.
Yes it looks different and now it is physically impossible to discern any sort of pixel structure but it isn’t any clearer; in fact it’s actually a more softened image that feels less sharp.
I do hope this isn’t what Pimax will resort to as a fall-back solution as it‘s not a meaningful improvement.
Specific rendering for the 70ppd screen at its native res or higher is the only way.
