Pico 4

On 22 September, the leading VR brand announced the launch of Pico 4, a lightweight, all-in-one VR headset that aims to bring the ultimate VR  experience without comprising comfort and performance. With this VR headset, users can enjoy interactive content across gaming, fitness, and video on the device. 

Usual VR headsets can be quite heavy on the wearer, but the Pico 4 weighs in at just 295g, making this the lightest VR headset yet. This is due to what is dubbed Pancake optics, a technology that closes the distance between the lens and the display. In addition, the VR gear brings functionality to a new level with its anti-slip PU that ensures more control, SuperSkin fabric to keep users cool and dry, and an ergonomic design that allows users who wear glasses space to immerse themselves in their VR worlds without sacrificing comfort or clarity. 

With four well-placed SLAM cameras around the thin frame of the head-mounted display, the Pico 4 comes with high-precision tracking and motion mapping of your surrounding environment, so don’t worry about knocking it into a wall during your gameplay. Visual quality is also unmatched as the Pico 4 boasts a 90Hz refresh rate, 4K+ screen, and 1,200 PPI. 

The Pico 4 also comes complete with a huge and diverse library of content. This includes the Pico Fitness programme that streamlines your fitness progress, interactive gaming experiences of popular titles such as Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom and The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners, and even an immersive live music experience in partnership with Wave.  

Price: To be announced 

Availability: Launches on 12 October 2022 in Malaysia
