I was a declared defender of the Pimax 8K due to the SDE. But know… Is possible I will change my mind to the 5K+.
The reason is Gestalt. Gestalt psychology. In special, the “emergence”. The capacity of the brain to see a big numbers of “things” as a simple whole.
When I use PSVR or Go… I don’t see SDE in the way that I see individual pixels. Because I’m used to see horizontal and vertical lines in my life. Is more usual. But diagonal… for me is strange. Like a fly vision.
In diagonal, like Odyssey, Vive, 8K… I see individual pixels. In Go, PSVR, 5K+… I see lines. Like old CRT monitors. My mind is used to it.
Then… for me… that’s the reason that after weeks thinking about it… I notice that is possible that 8K will have “less SDE”. But for my mind, I could ignore the horizontal pattern of the 5K+ SDE.
I explain all of it, because it is possible that somebody thinks like me and has Gestalt inside his mind hahah.
Some pictures about all of this.
