Sony officially announced the Playstation VR2 at CES 2022. If you want to buy the PSVR2, you have to invest 600 euros and need a Playstation 5. On February 22, the VR headset will officially be available in stores. Now Takamasa Araki from the Mechanical Design Team has disassembled the PSVR2 into individual parts in a teardown and allows a look under the hood.
PS VR2: light protection should be easy to clean
To ensure more comfort, Sony has turned the weight screw and made the second iteration of the Playstation VR 40 grams lighter. In addition to the headband, the VR headset also consists of the housing including cameras and displays. The rubber privacy screen can be easily removed and cleaned with water, but the privacy screen should be allowed to dry well before installation. Inside there is a small fan and the camera unit. With the four cameras integrated in the headset and the new Sense controller, the room can be scanned and then boundaries drawn where the scope ends. At the push of a button, a black and white image of the real environment can be displayed in the transmission view.
