There could be a game-changing feature coming to PSVR 2 with the upcoming virtual reality headset.
Sony’s PSVR 2 headset is a VR headset that is uniquely designed for PS5. A few features of the new headset have already been revealed, such as its streamlined design. However, Sony’s latest official update (which opens in a new tab) has revealed even more details. An entirely new transparent mode is included in this update.
Using this feature, users of PSVR 2 will be able to see their surroundings without having to take off their headsets. Although some of the best VR headsets have similar features such as walkthroughs and augmented reality, Sony VR is the first to provide such a feature.
As well as customizing your game area completely, PSVR 2 will allow you to create your own. Using the headset’s controllers and camera, you can examine your immediate surroundings. By doing this, you will be able to adjust the size of your play area, which will come in handy if you need some more space or if you wish to block off different furniture pieces.
A breathtaking view
- Sony’s new blog post clearly highlights the new transparent mode as the most noteworthy PSVR 2 feature.
- In addition to being able to find controllers and be aware of your surroundings, it will make your life easier in general.
- It is stated that Sony’s transparent mode is only for viewing and will not be able to record.
- They probably don’t want to broadcast their earthly possessions online, so this is a good choice.
Several tricks up its sleeve
Nevertheless, I wonder what other tricks this transparent mode will have up its sleeve once PSVR 2 launches. An augmented reality experience could be facilitated by this technology. Displaying full 3D models on a display can be as simple as this. Perhaps something more interactive, such as AR games that are fully accessible. Creating a virtual fishing pool or a hidden object hunt might be interesting.
Each update improves the sound of PSVR2
With every update to Sony’s headset, PSVR 2 sounds better and better. In spite of the fact that I am not yet certain that augmented reality will progress to the next level, the mere idea of it is enough for me to be excited about the headset’s potential. There are also some great features with PSVR 2, including a new broadcast mode that lets you use your PS5’s HD camera to record yourself and support a full 360-degree viewPSVR 2 has yet to be given a release date, but Sony states in the blog post that more information will be released in the near future.
