Pimax Frontier October 25th, 10am PDT

I’ll just leave here 2 links as I don’t see any discussion about this event.
My blind guess: Pimax will announce new HMD called (caugh) “Frontier” :thinking:

or they have exclusive VR support with Elite Dangerous Odyssey, by partnerning with Frontier. :rofl:

pretty cheeky scheduling it a day before oculus connect.

I can’t really discuss the event (due to NDA), but I did record a Q and A video for it.

You know what would be cool?

If they had new lenses and a curved display to keep that trademark FOV but have a form factor no bigger than an Index.

You know what wouldn’t be cool if this new headset is another kickstarter 5 year campaign. Forget that.

Lets go wild with speculation. What do we realistically
think it is, considering Pimax’ history?

I don’t know or have heard of anyone who has clocked in as many hours in Elite Dangerous ad Neal has, so given that fact and that he has recorded a Q & A video about the event… :sunglasses:

ohh and this, when you have registered on their page…

It’s beyond the speculative power of mere carbon units. :P.

Considering the comments made, I think a new, high fidelity HMD is very likely. Probably with aspheric lenses too. Past that… Hrm, hard to say on the hardware front. I’m expecting we’ll also get some kind of “roadmap” for the future.

This I can share: The video had nothing to do with ED.

The space theme is pointing to OLED. Imagine offering the first HDR headset :love_you_gesture:

I would not call it a “space theme”. I think it’s more about the frontiers of VR.

No products called Frontier or partnerships with Frontier development, theme is a mini homage to Trek.

Cap’t Kirk would be proud, but he’s currently busy preparing himself for a launch to the final frontier (Vulcan) as a tribute to his life long friend Mr Spock.

So I guess it is a “space theme” after all. :laughing:

If this is an announcement for a new pimax hmd i wonder when such a device would materialize i.e. be on sale? i suppose (hope) the event will talk about such things.

Looks like everybody are opting to throw their events around the same time as Facebook Connect…

I guess we may soon be in waiting state for several upcoming devices, each with their own wildly disparate strengths and weaknesses, making the choice all but obvious. :stuck_out_tongue:
