A complete Hardware and Software Solution

Training

Build apps that measure a user's cognitive load - giving businesses a better understanding of the trainee’s performance and ability to make decisions. Now, you can deliver experiences that better prepare teams to help deal with high-risk situations.

Wellbeing

Your applications can take advantage of real-time insights to improve wellbeing. Embrace VR technology and provide experiences that help reduce stress, improve comfort and assist breakthroughs.

Creation & Collaboration

Build experiences that maximize productivity and reduce development time. With integrated sensors, your app can track user engagement and assess user responses at any moment. And, with the face camera you can deliver avatars that display authentic facial expressions.

Cognitive Load

By monitoring heart rate, pupillometry and/or eye movement, your app can discern the level of brain power a user exerts in a VR session – an indicator of how well someone performs under stress and how effective decisions are made. Now you can uncover actionable insights to adapt each user's experience.

Expression - Coming in the future

Enables the accurate re-creation of facial expressions onto avatars for more natural collaborative experiences in VR.

HP VR Spatial Audio

Through innovative machine learning, HP VR Spatial Audio delivers dynamic Head-Related-Transfer-Functions (HRTFs), for more authentic audio immersion.

A word about VR ready Hardware

A regular office notebook will not do - but why? A personal note by Roger Graf - Product Manager Specialty Computing HP Switzerland

It is not big news. Virtual reality requires in average up to seven times the power of a normal game since the very "mainstream" adoption back in 2016. If we compare a regular PC Game with 1920 x 1080 Pixel resolution @ 30 Frames per second we reach 60 MP/S. The same content at 1680 x 1512 x 1512 (2 eyes) considering the different lense shapes and therefore aspect ratio we end up 3024 * 1680 @ 90 Frames per second = 450 MP/S. This comes along with a very thin latency tolerance. There is no room for lower performance as Frame Rate drops end up in motion sickness almost instantly, so the high requirements can be considered mandatory. The growing resolution, growing Field of View (FOW) - let's disregard any upcoming technology enhancements such as Foveated Rendering using Eye movement - are driving Graphic Performance Requirements even more. Some VR titles are already using Variable Rate Supersampling (VRSS) by NVIDIA performing selective supersampling handled by the driver itself.  If the VR game you play is in the list of 'VRSS supported by NVIDIA driver' it might make sense to switch it on in NVIDIA Control panel -> ‘Manage 3D Settings’ page -> ‘Program Settings’ tab.  There are a couple of options to choose from while turning ‘On’ VRSS. 

Adaptive – Applies supersampling to the central region of a frame. Size of the central region varies based on the GPU headroom available

Always On – Applies supersampling to the fixed size central region of a frame. This mode does not consider the GPU headroom availability and might result in frame drops

Nevertheless, you won't get around making sure especially your Graphics Power is sufficient. Below the minimum System Recommendations.
