Product information Pico G2 4K S
The Pico G2 4K S is a stand alone VR headset (3DoF) that is optimized for enterprise usage. The Pico 4K S is the second generation of the successful Pico G2 4K line and comes with increased storage capacity and a 20% larger battery compared to its predecessor (G2 4K). This makes the Pico G2 4K S ideal for enterprise usage.
The increased storage space of 128 GB means a vast amount of content can be stored at once, allowing the device to be used for multiple different experiences and 360 videos without having to buy and use SD cards. The large battery capacity allows a battery life up to 4 hours.
Furthermore, like all Pico headsets it is easy to clean (PU leather cover) and comfortable to wear, even for extended periods of time. Compared to the Oculus Go, the G2 4K S can be used with and without a controller, making it far more convenient for group setups.
Finally, the Pico G2 4K S is built on an Android operating system. This allows an increased level of customization and configuration opportunities for business use cases. Examples include disabling the buttons and limiting the options for end users.
G2 4K S in short
These are the most luxurious glasses that Pico currently has in the range. The G2 product line continues to build on the popular Gear VR from Samsung and the Oculus Go from Facebook. Nevertheless, Pico knows how to add some interesting features, which will particularly appeal to the business user such as a “kiosk” mode and controller-free operation.

What makes the headset special?
You can use these virtual reality headsets directly without an external PC or gaming laptop. That not only makes it a user-friendly device, it also saves a lot of money. No external cables are required, although a controller is included, the system also works with physical movement as standard.
Little space required:
The compact all-in-one system makes it easy to keep one or more sets ready. In addition, the user is limited to looking around, physical walking in the virtual environment is not possible. In combination with the 4K screen, this headset is ideal for passive experiences such as viewing a 360 video in a (rotating) chair.
The headset is the only product in the collection that comes standard with a counterweight. Because the battery is located on the back, there is less pressure on the front of the face, which many users find more pleasant.
A quite unique standard feature is the possibility to control the system with physical exercise, an external controller is then no longer necessary. Incidentally, “gaze-based” navigation is not unique for mobile virtual reality apps, the app must be prepared for this functionality.
Hygienic in use:
The soft cushion that rests on the face is easy to remove and clean. That is clearly an option designed for public presentations such as fairs and events. At home with multiple users, it is also quite a fresh idea.
Memory is expandable:
The original G2 4K had 32GB internal memory, however, the G2 4K S comes with 128GB external memory. This can come in handy for 4K video.
These glasses work like many standalones based on the Android operating system. In this case, the OS is easy to access for software developers, which creates new possibilities for custom applications.
Kiosk and broadcast mode:
By default you can lock the headset to one application, you can also show the image on an external screen without using additional hardware or software.
Limitations to take into account
3DoF stands for “Three Degrees of Freedom”. This means that you can look around completely as long as you stay in the same position. That makes the Virtual experience more limited compared to the 6DoF Virtual Reality headsets. This can be an advantage for presentations in smaller spaces and for users who have little experience with virtual worlds.
VR for business use
The sleek black finish immediately shows that the headset is intended for “serious business”. The higher image resolution proves that it is not just external display. Because the Android system on this device has been kept as open as possible, a company can relatively easily build and load applications on this system. The “kiosk” mode is standard part of the features, you can show one application while the access to the standard menu is locked. The controller-free option allows the user to navigate even without a remote control, a feature primarily intended for the business market.
Buy Pico G2 4K S
The Pico G2 4K S price may vary depending on the accessories and services you purchase. You can also purchase the G2 4K for a lower price, however, this device has a worse battery life and less storage capacity.
The main advantage of the G2 4K S compared to the original version is better battery life and increased storage capacity.
