HP has showed us what the HP Omnicept Solution can do, revealing the world’s smartest VR headset in the world and a developer-centric SDK coming together in a lone platform. This solution will provide an ecosystem to VR software developers, allowing them to develop new adaptive and hyper-personalised enterprise experiences.

While there are plenty of printing tips and advice online for HP users, here the printing giant has taken its product development to a whole new level. The HP Reverb G2 Omnicept Edition VR headset gives human insights in real-time that improves the results of education and training, in addition to enhanced design and collaboration.

Companies are stepping up their game right now to provide enhanced viewing experiences. And VR is right up there in facilitating these experiences. The VR sphere evolves to maintain pace with the way that people engage with technology, along with their general environment to feel and stay connected. Body language and facial expression make up 50 per cent of all communication considered to be effective. And with between 25 and 30 per cent of today’s workforce estimated to work remotely this year, immersive tools can improve remote collaboration.

Omnicept SDK and the HP Reverb G2 Omnicept Edition are meant to use technology to curate personal and human experiences. Since the days before the pandemic, there’s been a 35 per cent increase in the use of technology.

An Adaptive and Powerful VR Solution

HP Reverb G2 Omnicept Edition is changing the way in which developers increase efficiency in enterprise by adding data for more helpful analysis. HP’s Jim Nottingham said that they’ve developed an adaptive and powerful VR solution to accelerate the VR use cases, its potential in transforming society, and how they engage with technology.

Nottingham added that the HP Omnicept Solution will provide further possibilities for VR development and its effect on specialised well-being, researched and development, collaboration, remote education, and enterprise training. This data-driven approach will be a key to improving VR through the development of user-centric experiences.

The HP Reverb G2 Omnicept Edition protects the privacy of the end-user via its highly secure pipeline. Sensor data is continually safeguarded by the headset’s firmware, as no data is stored. HP Omnicept-powered apps help the data capture and transfer in order to adhere to General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirements and maintain confidentiality of user data.

VR Experiences with a Human Touch

You can find many HP users explaining some of the basic printing problems online, such as the common “HP printer won’t print black”. So, it isn’t as though HP hasn’t had its problems when it comes to the human experience. When it comes to VR, however, the company clearly hasn’t ignored the personal touch. Its personalised experiences based on actionable insights and analytics increase retention rates for education, as well improve wellbeing. The headset’s sensors, which include face cameras, pupillometry, heart rate, and eye-tracking, enable physiological responses that are captured by the HP Reverb G2 Omnicept Edition.

Advanced machine learning algorithms power the integrated Omnicept SDK, which interprets data and enables the development of a VR experience focused around the user, and that provides insights into how the end-user engages and responds during the experience.

With this end-to-end intelligent platform, experiences created by product developers and designers for research, wellness, design, and training become data-driven and adapted to users in real-time via subjective feedback vs objective metrics.

The HP Reverb G2 Omnicept Edition should be available from Spring 2021. While pricing has yet to be revealed, it will be announced closer to the release date. HP Omnicept SDK should be available from Spring 2021, with a flexible business model included.
