Index, the virtual reality glasses of the publisher of games Valve, will cost a total of 1,079 euros. The company announced this on Tuesday. For this price, users receive the headset, two controllers and two external sensors.
The index offers an LCD screen with a resolution of 1,440 x 1,600 pixels. The screen refreshes with a frequency of 120 Hz and offers an experimental mode in which this increases to 144 Hz.
The VR headset also works in conjunction with Steam. The RV experiences that users previously purchased for competing HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, or a headset with the Windows Mixed Reality platform also work on Index.
External sensors, where users can set a maximum of four, allow Index to track the RV user's position in a room. The VR headset can also be used without these sensors.
Index works with a computer running on Windows 10, Linux or SteamOS with an operating memory of at least 8 GB.
In addition to the full set of headphones, controllers and sensors, Valve also offers a headset package with two controllers (799 euros) and the three products can be purchased separately. The valve starts on Wednesday with the pre-sale and the products are delivered from June 28.
