Sony’s CES 2024 presentation didn’t have much news for the first 25 minutes, but then the company revealed a new virtual reality creation headset with… no name so far, aimed at “spatial content creation.” With a matte gray finish, the headset looks like a stripped-down PSVR2, and there appear to be two cameras facing out from the front. There is also a controller-wand and a smaller peripheral similar in size to a ring. The new hardware is apparently aimed at creators and artists who manipulate and craft products in virtual spaces.
Sony CEO Kenichiro Yoshida said it would offer a “crisp viewing experience” and “intuitive interaction for 3D design”, teasing a device aimed at professionals, similar to its professional-level cameras and devices. 
Sony showed mock-ups of a user tinkering with a bipedal robot while wearing the new headset, manipulating the robot’s harm, while two monitors nearby showed things in extra detail.

Details are scant, but it doesn’t seem like a Vision Pro rival (or even a next-gen PSVR2) but something possibly more like Hololens. Just more… artistic. Hopefully, we’ll hear and see more at Sony’s booth later this week.
