Rendever, a company committed to overcoming the issues of social isolation with shared virtual experiences, recently announced a new development. The company’s VR platform for seniors is now transitioning its hardware solution of choice to Pico Interactive’s 4K headset.
Pico Interactive is another market leader in VR and AR solutions that support companies in creating the best possible XR experiences. Offering fantastic computer generated imagery and hardware built for user-first design, Pico Interactive has caught the attention of countless growing companies. Now, the Pico Interactive G2 4K headset will be the hardware of choice for Rendever.
Designed with the enterprise in mind, the G2 4K headset fits Rendever’s needs as a hardware solution, allowing the business to continue its exceptional growth.
Developing New XR Experiences
The Rendever platform reduces feelings of loneliness and depression in senor living communities, hospices, and healthcare locations. The solution fosters personal connections among populations that struggle to connect with others in their day-to-day life. VR headsets in the Rendever system are connected through a network so that participants can share immersive experiences.
Physical limitations cease to be a barrier with Rendever, allowing seniors to check off their bucket list items, travel to meaningful places, and share stories in a virtual environment. According to Cofounder and Chief Technology Officer for Rendever, Tom Neuman, the team is thrilled to work with Pico on high-quality hardware for all senior living partners. With the G2 4K headset, the company can support the current resident engagement platform, and expand offerings too.
The transition into the Pico hardware environment has been easy, according to Rendever, thanks to the flexibility of the enterprise option. This new technology aims to continuously empower the engineering team in improving the Rendever software and interactive experiences.
Choosing the Ideal Hardware for VR
The right hardware is an important choice in any VR or XR development. The Pico G2 4K enterprise headset features 4K resolution, an incredible 101–degree field of view, 128 GB of storage, and a 16 MP single RGB camera. The facial interface (all PU), and carefully counterbalanced design allows for easy maintenance and cleaning too, bringing more comfort and safety to seniors through the platform.
The VP of Design at Pico Interactive, Ennin Huang, said that the team is excited to help Rendever serve its clients, and give seniors a way to connect with their family, friends, and the world around them. The mission of Rendever is to overcome all feelings of social isolation, and the transition into the Pico hardware should help with this.
Already, Rendever is in the process of rolling out new Pico headsets to senior living communities, like the Evergreen home for Special Care, and the Go Ye Village.
