During its CES 2019 press conference focused on virtual reality, HTC made a series of announcements revealing what's next for the company. The headset will also enable what is known in the industry as foveated rendering, which means that it renders the areas of an experience where users now look in high-resolution, while rendering areas that are out of focus at lower resolutions. Pricepoint, release date (although 2019 is planned), and other vital information have yet to be given, although HTC says they'll share more down the road. Cosmos is usable both at home or on the go, according to HTC. Instead of your image being locked on the center of the screen, it'll follow wherever you look! The images in the user's peripheral vision are rendered at a lower quality, which doesn't impact the experience due to the way the human eye works. No more turning your head and keeping your eyes always forward - now you can simply adjust your gaze and maybe not move your head so much. With integrated eye tracking and foveated rendering, less powerful PC's would be needed to run the headset, helping drop costs.

Virtual reality is taking off in a big way. While it's really cool that the headset can track your eye movement, it will also be able to collect the information of what you're looking at.

Warren took questions from audience members at every event, using an unusual raffle system to determine who would get a question. He's most concerned about the cost of his prescription medication, which he has to pay almost $300 for out of pocket.

HTC's smartphone making arm may not be doing so well recently, but the Taiwanese company's Vive division is still one of the pioneers of the VR headset space. In the meantime, I'm going to continue being rather excited about a VR headset that uses eye-tracking. There haven't been any updates on pricing yet, but it will be supported with the Vive, Rift, and Focus.

On the services side, HTC announced Viveport Infinity, a long-term VR subscription service giving customers access to over 500 apps, including "top games" and educational apps, for a monthly fee.
