Last year, Pico Interactive announced its readiness to release two new devices in the field of VR. Namely Pico Neo 2 and Neo 2 Eye. And if analogues on the market from Playstation and Sony bring new opportunities in the gaming industry, then Pico focused on the corporate component of the device's capabilities. And they did this by simplifying the microcircuits, relying on relative cheapness and great attention to the Western market, where the introduction of VR technologies is gaining quite a lot of momentum.

Pico Neo 2 and Neo 2 Eye

What's going on in the market?

In principle, if we discard the gaming industry, then the main giants are Oculus Quest and HTC Vive Focus Plus, and the aforementioned Pico. And if the former are pioneers in the development of the intellectual level of the device, then a significant disadvantage is that Oculus has not received certification in the CIS markets, and getting these glasses, and even on a corporate scale, is not an easy task. Either we use the services of the "black market" and overpay, or we move on. HTC, in turn, received all the necessary permissions for the sale, but set such a price that "data updates" can cost the company a big penny. This is where Pico Neo comes to the rescue. I will write about the advantages of this choice later, but first I will talk about the company itself, and why in 2021 you can start trust Chinese counterparts.

Pico company

Company logo from 2015

A rather young company on the market (since 2015) has already begun to position itself as a competitor to Western giants. Headquartered in the United States, Europe, China, Japan, it specializes in developing innovative virtual reality solutions that enable their users to make the best use of interactive computer graphics. At the beginning of its journey, with the release of the Pico G2 headset, the company did not have much success and was considered a rather failed project. Then their shares fell by more than 40%. But Chinese companies differ from their Western counterparts precisely in their determination, and already in 2018, after the announcement of Pico Neo technologies, they got more than $25 million from Chinese investment funds at their disposal.

What's unique about Pico Neo 2

6DOF Technology

This technology presumes that the user of the device will receive complete autonomy from the computer, sensors and other connections. This will save the time of any employee and give him the opportunity not to be tied to a specific location, and in a pandemic, it is just what you need.


Thanks to the use of carbon fiber and a simplified design, the owner of the headset will be able to spend much more time in it, because the load on the cervical spine will be minimal. This was done deliberately and wisely, because the purpose of our product was to be used in commercial projects, which often take a long time.

Unique image

  • no mosquito net;
  • 4K displays at 75 frames per second;
  • FOV (Field of View) - 101 degrees.

Fatty filling

  • 128 GB internal storage with microSD up to 1 TB;
  • 3.5mm EC / NR stereo speaker and dual microphone;
  • Bluetooth 5.0 technology and 6DoF technology;
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and 802.11ac Wi-Fi.

Legal goodies

This model, if taken from certified suppliers, will have a warranty and round-the-clock online support. For corporations, where the number of devices often exceeds a hundred, this is extremely important.

Other benefits

  1. The presence of batteries in the controllers, which overshadows the problem of constantly changing batteries.
  2. Option to purchase an enhanced version of the Pico Neo 2 Eye headset with eye tracking technology for an additional fee. It has already received positive reviews from users, and forced competitors to start implementing the same filling.
  3. The presence of a cooling system that will "cool" even the hottest users.

What's the catch?

We must understand that there are no flawless VR technologies on the market right now. And even the described model has them.

Blur the image at the edge of the lenses

The image quality of the device depends on two factors: the screen itself and less significant lenses. And just about the lenses will be discussed. They can hardly be called good, and in the opinion of our editors, they need to be improved. Indeed, due to their imperfection, one can notice chromatic aberration (“decomposition” of colors due to light dispersion).

Main menu optimization

She also wants the best, even at the beginning of using it, you can notice a drop in FPS, which, in principle, will not create problems, but the eye will not be so happy.


This is the detail you need to pay attention to first. As we mentioned above, VRs are pretty cheap and have carbon fiber in their composition. Which, in addition to lightness, also provides for fragility. So you need to put glasses on the table very carefully.


Medical applications of Pico VR Neo 2 Eye

Okay, all the minuses and pluses are considered. What to decide?
If you want to introduce technology into production, Pico VR glasses will be a good choice for you, because the disadvantages of analogues are quite significant, and Pico hardware is not far behind. So as they say in the West - make your choice.
