Pico is rolling out one of the biggest firmware updates for Pico 4 to date. What are the improvements and new features in Pico OS 5.7.0?
Pico 4 has been on the market for ten months, at least in Europe and several other countries. A launch in the largest VR market, the US, is still pending.
Meanwhile, Pico is making changes to the VR headset’s firmware. Pico OS 5.7.0 offers the following features and improvements.
Manual tracking: more accurate and stable
Pico has improved the algorithms responsible for tracking hands and fingers. Virtual hand jitter has been reduced and hand tracking should now work more accurately and stably overall.
Spatial Tracking: Best in dark, large rooms
Pico has also updated the 6DoF algorithms. Jitter tracking in dark, spacious rooms or when the head is still should now be reduced. The border now moves less often when the player respawns.
PC VR streaming: Sharper with filters
Those who do without Virtual Desktop can now also use a sharpening filter in the standard Pico software. The level of sharpness can be adjusted (0 – 100 percent). The tactile sensations of the PC VR streaming controller have also been improved.
When the screen is off and the battery of the device is more than 50%, the system will update the firmware by itself and restart the system. This eliminates the need for manual updates.
New registration options
There are now options to record VR action in a vertical format and aspect ratio of 9:16 (if you want to post videos on social networks). Here you have higher resolution and frame rates of 24 and 36 FPS at your disposal. Image stabilization is now on by default and you can view recorded material immediately without having to switch to the file manager.
Video Player: Better image quality
The video player is now said to provide an overall clearer picture.
Scanning of bank cards
This unusual new firmware update feature lets you scan credit card information using passthrough mode, saving you the hassle of typing in numbers.
Pico has also tweaked the browser performance and user interface here and there. In addition to numerous bug fixes, system performance and stability have been improved.
Many of these improvements also apply to Pico Neo 3 Link, by the way. You can find the full release notes on the Pico tab.
