Introduction

Pico G2, part of the Pico VR, stands for Pico Goblin 2, the successor to the original Pico Goblin. This device improved upon the Goblin in multiple ways:

  • 40% lighter [1]
  • 25% better display [1]
  • additional trigger button on single, 3DOF controller [2]

Pico Interactive's focus is on enterprise-grade VR headsets, and the G2 is no different. This headset was first made available to companies in China. [3]

The Pico G2 is the first in a line of G2 headsets:

Setup Tutorial

You can set up the Pico G2 without an account, but will need one to download or purchase content from the Pico Store. [4]

The headset comes with Kiosk mode, which enables you to launch a specific application upon start-up. This may make onboarding easier within an enterprise context. [1][4]

Input Devices

Each headset comes with one, 3 degrees-of-freedom controller similar to Oculus Go or Daydream View.[3]

With Pico G2, you can also choose to control the headset by looking, instead of the controller. [4]

Accessories

Apps

For the G2, Pico partnered with HTC Vive to offer more content. Through Viveport, users can interact with more apps than available on the Pico Store. [1]
