Meta Quest (2): Visit CES 2022 with Virtual Reality in 8K 3D
CES 2022 is over. Get a feel for the show and visit the most interesting booths with this VR tour.
Once again this year, the world's largest electronics show struggled with the aftermath of the pandemic. Many tech companies, including Amazon, Google, Meta, and Microsoft, canceled their presence at the show. VR vlogger Hugh Hou's 180-degree video shows that the halls were nevertheless well filled and that there was quite a bit of brand-new technology to see.
Massive VR goggles and LED walls
Since Hou is a VR enthusiast, the focus of his video tour is virtual reality. For example, you can see the Youtuber trying out the massive high-end XTAL 3 VR glasses with 180-degree field of view and various VR telepresence solutions (the Metaverse says hello).
Hou also visited Sony's booth, where the company revealed the tech specs of the Playstation VR 2. Unfortunately, the VR goggles themselves were not on display. At Panasonic, there were huge LED walls to marvel at, while Samsung presented a TV with NFT support and demonstrated an AR windshield.
It is striking that Meta Quest 2 dominates the exhibition halls. No matter which demo: If VR glasses are used, they are mostly Meta's devices.
Shot with Canon's new VR lens
The video was recorded with Canon's new VR camera system, which consists of a Canon EOS R5 and a special VR dual lens. Hou released the first footage shot with this combination shortly before Christmas.
You can watch the CES tour on Youtube VR or even better on Oculus TV. If you download the video from Oculus TV, the picture quality is much better. You can find out how to do that in my Quest 2 tips article.
