We heard in the last update that Pimax was having issues finding a one fits all algorithm for their lens distortion.
“With large FOV, it is hard to find the “one fits all” algorithm.”
“The distortion would be the result of several possible factors, including different FOV options, IPD, myopia/hyperopia, and the different distances between eyes and lenses. This is not an issue with small FOV headsets, but an issue with big FOV headsets.”
“Whatsmore, we plan to offer several settings for users to find their best fit. More information will be shared later.”
They mentioned they’d have profiles that you can choose from to find what best suits you. I’m wondering if the eye tracking could be used to automatically select the correct distortion algorithm for your eyes. Have you guys experimented with using the eye tracking module for distortion correction/distortion profile selection? @xunshu
If this is possible, it’s another reason they should integrate eye tracking instead of a making a module!
AdHawk’s eye tracker would be a good fit for the 8k, as it has very low power consumption and is also very low priced. Reportedly 10$ per eye.
