HTC is one of the world's leading companies when it comes to VR (virtual reality) technology and therefore, no one should be shocked to find out that HTC's panel at CES 2019 was used to show off the company's latest VR innovations. Whether you're new to VR or familiar, a fantastic voyage awaits.

Alienware has made more than 30 updates to its proprietary Alienware Command Center, a central hub that allows gamers to customise all aspects of their experience. In addition, VIVEPORT, HTC's global app store for VR content, announced unlimited subscription access with Viveport Infinity so all the best content is available at any time. Eye-tracking is a big deal for VR.

Vive Pro, built to meet the needs of the professional VR user, just got even better with integrated eye tracking on the new Vive Pro Eye-giving users new levels of accessibility, including gaze-oriented menu navigation and removing the need for controllers. Members will be able access Viveport Infinity across all current and future Vive devices as well as the Oculus Rift and other devices in the Wave Eco-system.

Cincinnati Bengals target Zac Taylor as head coach
ESPN reported Taylor also wants to be in Cincinnati, where he coached as the Cincinnati Bearcats' offensive coordinator in 2016. Prior to coaching the quarterbacks this season, the 35-year-old Taylor was the Rams' assistant wide receivers coach in 2017.

HTC showed off a new eye-tracking tech in its Vive VR headset line. It's tentatively called the Vive Cosmos, which the company says won't require any external tracking solutions and could be powered by different systems, including desktops, laptops, and perhaps smartphones. Though the first developer kits will be available in early 2019, general availability and price will come later in the year.

As well as the launches above, VIVE has also announced the Vive Cosmos, the newst VR headset, and the Vive Reality System, created to improve the overall user experience.

In the framework of the worldwide exhibition of electronics CES 2019 HTC told about prospects of development of the own device and the ecosystem of virtual reality. Also Vive Cosmos will have new controllers. The implication of this is that HTC may offer tools that will allow developers to take this feature into account, but this has yet to be confirmed. These user interface improvements make Alienware Command Center easier to use.
