Pimax’s predicted 8K VR headset will now not be shipping to Kickstarter backers this month or subsequent.

The tool, which raised over $4 million in crowd-funding closing yearchanged into at the beginning estimatedvia the organization to start transport in December, with a primary bundle including simply the headset arriving for backers in January and the entire applications consisting of controllers and base stations landingin February. without a news on delivery in December, however, backers had been concerned they wouldn’t get their units in this initial window.

that appears to be the case; in a thread on the Pimax boards detailing the corporation’s plans for CES nextweek a member of the group showed that the ‘cutting-edge ETA’ for the headset was Q2 2018. “We prefer tomake it right, so received’t rush,” the employer said. The predicted might also 2018 delivery of the 8K X unit, which is designed for subsequent-technology GPUs, will also be updated within the future.

Q2 appears to be the estimation for only the primary batch of devices proper now. Pimax also plans to “deliver a very small batch to the leaders in Pimax network and volunteers earlier than shipping largerextent.”

It’s a long way from uncommon for Kickstarter initiatives to miss their expected transport desires by somemonths, so this doesn’t always suggest backers need to be concerned, frustraiting as it can be. At CES, Pimax plans to showcase the modern day prototype for the 8K VR headset with its monitoring sensors now hidden, better IPD adjustment and higher warmness dissipation among different improvements. Tellingly, the crewstates it’s nonetheless looking into reaching a 85/90Hz refresh fee for the headset, which gained’t be finalized until March on the earliest.

Pimax’s headset is promising loads right now; the headset achieves 8K resolution the usage of two 4K displaysand the corporation claims it'll ship with full help for SteamVR. Will it live up to humans’s expectations?
