HP Zvr goes for blended realityThis new virtual reality system, built around a 24-inch 3D display, might save more than a few frogs.
[MUSIC] [UNKNOWN] You're taking a look at one of the more interesting PC accessories at CES. That is the HP Zvr. Of course, the vr stands for virtual reality. This is a 24 inch monitor. And it sits on a big stand. You can tilt it back at different angles, and it's got this kind of arch over the top. That arch contains four cameras that track your head position. You put on a pair of passive 3D glasses, and then all of a sudden, you're in this virtual reality world. HP calls it blended reality. And you use an included stylus to manipulate objects in 3-D, in real time. Having used a lot of virtual reality devices I did like that the, the pen control really felt very real time. This thing you don't always get with these systems. This is intended for educational use. They want you to be able to take the pen for example and. Dissect a frog or examine a molecule or set of gears. I like that you can pick things up and flip them around completely backward to get a 360 degree view of an object. Again, something you don't see with a lot of virtual reality. Headsets out there. The Zvr will be out in the second quarter of 2015 but we do not have a price yet, but I bet it will not be inexpensive, however. I'm Dan Ackerman, the man with the HP Zvr. [MUSIC]
