Earlier this month, Pimax held a meeting in Berlin exclusively for its investors with Kickstarter, where visitors had the opportunity to test the Pimax 8K headset. Also at the presentation, Pimax announced a new version of the headset called Pimax 5K +, which indicates that the company did not sit idly after the end of the campaign at Kickstarter.
Now Pimax has announced that he is working with Somnium Space to create a Pimax store in the virtual world. Recall that Somnium Space is a cross-platform virtual world where users can buy or rent space.
Pimax headsets were created as an attempt to push the boundaries of the possibilities of modern display technology and provide the user with a virtual experience with high resolution and wide field of view.
At one time at Kickstarter, many users financially supported the development of the device and they have the opportunity to attend presentations and test the novelty. But ordinary consumers also want to see firsthand how the device looks and feels in the hands before laying out for it their hard cash.
Somnium Space VR will allow people to carefully study the detailed VR model of the Pimax 8K and 5K + headsets. In the virtual store, they will be able to see the actual shape and size, as well as view the latest reviews and even chat with Pimax representatives.
“We believe that virtual reality should not only be an excellent visual experience but also should bring additional benefits and benefits to players and companies. If virtual reality provides users with the opportunity to directly test and then purchase products such as the VIM of the Pimax headset, or cars such as the Tesla Model 3, this will make their solutions more weighted. This is the same additional benefits for the consumer. ”
“Looking at the benefits for companies, they will be able to demonstrate their products to the consumer with such precision and detail that are unattainable in today’s simple web browser format. This will not only increase their income but also save money if they open more virtual stores, not real ones, “said Arthur Sychev, founder of Somnium Space.
“We are very pleased with this cooperation because Pimax will be the first VR hardware store in virtual reality. Players can take the device in their hands, inspect, buy a headset and accessories, view testers’ reviews, meet other VR enthusiasts and chat, “said Sunshu, global marketing manager at Pimax.
