1) Apple's Vision Pro: A High-End Contender. While information about Apple's Vision Pro headset remains scarce, its price point is noticeably higher than that of the Meta Quest 3. This cost might deter some users seeking a more budget-friendly option. Nonetheless, we are actively researching and gathering details about Apple's Vision Pro and its compatibility with DeoVR. Keep an eye on this blog, as we'll provide a full account of our findings and offer recommendations once we have a complete understanding of this intriguing headset.

2) PICO 5: Rumored Successor to PICO 4. The PICO 5 is not yet confirmed, but leaked images of what looks like new PICO controllers have surfaced hinting that a PICO 5 is in development, meaning the PICO 4 could be getting an upgrade in the coming months. Based on the success of the PICO 4, a new model is likely to be a strong contender that we will be keeping an eye on. Full specs are not yet available.

3) Valve “Deckard”: Steam-based Mystery Project. A reigning champion in the high-end PCVR market, Valve is rumored to be developing a new VR system to succeed the Index. Codenamed “Deckard,” very little is known about the project so far. It could be a linear improvement Index 2, or it could be something different. Naturally, specs are not yet available. As we uncover more we will be sure to keep you up-to-date.
