Pimax should have focused all this effort on bringing an improved Pimax4K to light in a similar way to the upgraded Vive Pro.
Pimax would still have had the highest resolution VR product on the market, would have been an improvement of their existing technology, within their capability to achieve quickly and still blown all others away.
That is what is disappointing to me. I would definitely have bought one.
I believe that Pimax will eventually get the 8K done, but it will be a similar process as the 4K and take some time.
As long as the hardware/electronics platform is capable, in time, the product can be made to work to spec, but it can't be rushed.
Also, from what I have read over the past months, I feel that Pimax rushed to CES to appease their backers, some of which have been putting pressure to attend all the tech shows.
I feel this is BIG mistake for a prototype level product.
Pimax needs an in-house quality control department, independent of engineering to really test the product before showing it to external reviewers.
Keep it secret until it works well enough to show to a very select few who have signed confidentiality agreements. And only then, if they report that the product is ready to display, show it to the public.
