Today on Tech Check, a thoughtful new VR headset, a novel way to navigate the metaverse, and a 5K display on its way to the U.S.A.

Lenovo is staking a claim on the metaverse with its latest VR headset, the ThinkReality VRX. Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon XR chipset and offering 6 degrees-of-freedom, the VRX aims to be an all-in-one solution for enterprise VR and MR. Use cases include simulation and design, skills training, retail, and beyond.

Anyone who’s donned a VR headset knows that the experience isn’t usually comfortable for very long, but the ThinkReality VRX heads off the head strain with a slim form factor, a balanced weight distribution, and a venting system that keeps hot air away from the user’s face.

The ThinkReality VRX is not yet in wide release but Lenovo has set its starting price at thirteen hundred dollars. It will also be available as part of Lenovo’s Device-as-a-Service offering. 

Hand tracking company Ultraleap has launched the next generation of its Leap Motion Controller, a sensor that allows users to interact with 3D content using hand gestures alone.

The new controller improves upon the original with higher resolution cameras, an increased field of view, and 25 percent less power consumption. It’s also 30 percent smaller than the original, so it takes up less space when mounted to a VR headset.

The Leap Motion Controller 2 is available now from distributors such as Mouser and Arrow. It an MSRP of $139 dollars.

Samsung has revealed that its new 27-inch 5K monitor, the ViewFinity S9, will be available in the U.S. this August. The company claims the display will provide the best experience for professionals in creative and visual industries.

The ViewFinity S9 packs 218 pixels per square inch and offers a typical brightness of 600 nits. It covers 99 percent of the DCI-P3 color gamut and has a highly rated color accuracy. Plus users will be able to calibrate the display using their phones with Samsung’s SmartThings app.

The new monitor made its debut earlier this year at CES 2023, and it will finally hit shelves this August for an MSRP of sixteen hundred dollars.
