Hi Futurists, 

You will all get a free eye-tracking module, Congrats! 

* The eye tracking module will be shipped separately at a later date, please stay tuned for updates. 

For those who missed the 8K tiers - 

We have placed two orders for display panels so far, 6,000 screens per order / 12,000 screens in total. We reserved 2,000 screens / 1,000 headsets for groups, 10,000 screens / 5,000 headsets for home users. 

It is still possible for us to make more units available, but the shipping time will be around two months later than that of the current batch, as the lead time/supply delay of more screens will be around 10 - 12 weeks. 

We have discussed with the project team today and decided to break some multi-unit packages for groups into a few more single units for home users while ensuring the production and delivery time. 

8K backers – 

You will be the first group of people experience 8K VR in the world! 

For the next several months, the team will focus on finalizing the product, manufacturing, and delivering the packages to you. 

Really looking forward to your experience with the brand new 8K headsets! 

Best Regards,

The Pimax Team

      Hi, is it possible you could add a "blue light filter" software option on your headsets similar to the latest Android phones & LG Oled TV (called "Eye Comfort mode")? I have both and I have noticed that i can watch screens for a lot longer without eye strain and this i am sure will be of benefit of many gamers.

      I agree . I expected that I at least get a message with a list in which it shows in detail what everything is included in the set.

      Ohh and also, my best guess is that "Deluxe Package" means the same as "8K Full Package"

      @Cüneyit From the Comments
      Q: Do the VR Party and Boost your fun pledges include the stretch goal rewards for each headset in the bundle? Or is it just one set of rewards for the whole pledge?
      A: if you get a VR Party, you will get 14 sets of the stretch goal gifts. For Boost your fun, you will get 5 sets.

      Hello. I supported the 10,000 $ in Vr Party. But I still do not know what exactly is in the set here.What is Deluxe Package? Can someone help me? Thank you very much

      @Pimax i saw this comment : "Q: Are the 8K Full package backers included in the first batches, I guess that depends on when the controllers and base stations are going to be ready?
      A: We will make sure you get the headsets as soon as it becomes available, not necessarily wait for other accessories."

      Its possible to choose. I'd rather wait than receive several things at different times

      Based on the obstacles you still need to overcome, how confident are you that kickstarter 8K units will be shipped in January ?

      Also, can you comment if the product is in line with the CE standards for Europe and if it therefore has the CE marking, which is required for the product to even be allowed to be sold here in Europe.
      Otherwise there is the very real possibility, that the product is taken away by the customs office without any compensation and without a way to get it back....

      Q: I would appreciate if you could answer my question about tax and customs because it's a lot of extra money on top of the HMD. Thanks again!
      A: We will update our plan on shipping!

      Epsilon Rose @ you can watch 4k movies or any 2d games(Virtual Desktop or Bigscreen app needed) or even Tridef VR or Vorpx games

    12. Epsilon Rose on

      Is it possible to play a normal game on these headsets, on something like a virtual imax, and pass the eye tracking data to it?

      Q: Some people ("Tested" on YouTube) who have tested it says there is some distortion on the edges. Will this be corrected for?
      A: we have optimized with software. The distortion is gone. here is a more recent review: https://www.youtube.com/watch…

    15. Pimax 8K VR Creator on

      Q: When u say 8k backers do you also say 5k ?
      A: yes! just if we put 5K/8K/X backers, that is too long.

      Q: Sounds like everything's coming together, and you guys have a solid plan to the product release, which is great!
      Whilst everyone - myself included! - is excited about the eventual launch and getting their hands on the hardware, I'm sure you won't release it until you have a solid, finalised product:
      Shigeru Miyamoto: "A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad,"
      Having to wait a couple of extra months after an expected release for unexpected issues to be ironed out is painful - for a few months. Receiving a product 'on time' that didn't have issues ironed out is painful forever.
      A: We will keep updating our progress! Your satisfaction matters to our success.

    17. Pimax 8K VR Creator on

      Q: Will the 5k version delivery together with the 8k version?
      A: We will follow first come first serve rule to ship both 5K and 8K units.

      Q: Can you please make a statement about the 75Hz issue? Reddit and the forums have exploded upon the news from New York and a lot of people (including myself) are now having second thoughts about our pledge.
      Basically, you need to commit to native 90Hz refresh no matter what (without Brainwarp or any other workaround technologies).
      A: The hardware system supports 90Hz, we will keep optimizing and conduct compatibility test, and post progress here: http://forum.pimaxvr.com/t/pimax-8k-refresh-rate-progress/3859

      Q: Regarding the next stretch goal, could you add a built in camera like the Vive. The camera chaperone is extremely useful, being able to see the real world without taking of the hmd is also a great thing and room view is helpful for moving things around the play space.
      A: That's a very interesting feature!

    25. Jack Winder on

      @Pimax, is there any news about the way it will be send to us? Hopefully without us paying taxes and customs? Thanks

    26. Pimax 8K VR Creator on

      Q: Are the 8K Full package backers included in the first batches, I guess that depends on when the controllers and base stations are going to be ready?
      A: We will make sure you get the headsets as soon as it becomes available, not necessarily wait for other accessories.

      Q: So the screens are ordered, which means the display 75/90hz issue is going to be locked in stone now?
      A: Our hardware system supports 90Hz.

      Q: You should not have increased the number of seats. It is better to leave as it was. We don't want to increase the time of delivery
      A: We will produce and deliver the packages based on first come first serve rule.

      Can we get an update on the controllers? Seeing the world is important but so is interacting with it :)
