Sony has shared a pair of teardown videos for its forthcoming PlayStation VR2 and its Sense controllers – you can watch them below.
The clips see PS VR2 hardware engineers Takamasa Araki and Takeshi Igarashi offer an in depth preview of the internal structure and design philosophy behind the new virtual reality products.
In the first 12-minute video, Araki explains how he and his team created the PS VR2’s “well-balanced and symmetrical internal structure, enhanced cooling system for comfortable gameplay, optics for amazing graphic fidelity, and the ergonomic headband designed to maximise comfort”, per an official description.
The Sense controller takedown, meanwhile, sees Igarashi delve into the product’s “tracking technology that amplifies the feeling of immersion, with finger touch detection that enables players to make more natural hand gestures during gameplay, as well as the haptic feedback and adaptive triggers that build upon the innovation of the DualSense wireless controller”.
