  • Building on the success of the HP Reverb VR Headset, HP Design was tasked to evolve and refine the headset experience to add value to the HP VR product portfolio. As the nascent VR market is rapidly evolving, our customers demand the highest quality experience at an affordable price. The design team wanted to make sure the HP product line was at the forefront of this competitive market. With specific focus on enhanced optics, immersive sound, and ease-of-use for our enterprise and consumer users, we aimed for the next level of immersion and comfort for longer use time in VR.

  • The HP Design team focused on a variety of attributes, including: • Crisper design language that is both evolutionary and brand-driven • Enhanced off ear audio • InterPupillary Distance (IPD) adjustment, a commonly requested feature • Magnetic face mask for easy removal and cleaning in shared environments • Improved cable clip and cable routing • A single, round cable for lighter weight and improved flexibility • An additional pair of side tracking cameras (for a total of 4 tracking cameras) to improve the range of controller use Additionally, human factors engineering helped create the best and widest possible fit to the human head, for widespread user acceptance.

  • The market for enterprise and consumer VR is young, but growing rapidly. With competitors vying for top spots using various extremes in component selection or by releasing de-featured, less-quality headsets for mass consumption, it was important for HP to strike the balance of best-in-class quality at an affordable price. And as society adjusts to emerging realities like working from home, social distancing, and video-conferencing instead of in-person business meetings, the Reverb G2 is set to advance the emergence of social VR, collaborative online working, and immersive new content creation for the future.
