“It’s great to see HTC come forward, and the improvement of devices-specs,” said Brian Blau, an analyst at Gartner.

“It is something that is really needed to help users get over the mountain of things such as travel sickness [sometimes caused by blur in the VR headset shows].”

Mr Blue told the BBC that much had not meant by the hype surrounding virtual reality devices, the technique sometimes live up to the expectations of the population – something that he believes has caused a little sluggish sales of VR-hardware.

The next generation of headset, could accommodate even more advanced technologies such as eye tracking, which enables ultra-high resolution, rendering graphics at the exact same point on the screen where the user is looking.

“The only thing that will change, however, the situation of the quality of the content,” adds Mr Blau.

“You could argue and say, there are a lot of games, even companies are the adoption of VR… but it is not nearly enough.

“Technology ecosystems require a tremendous amount of content, so people come back, and it must be diverse.”
