The dual controller setup with keyboard integration facilitates efficient modeling of 3D objects with a focus on creativity and precision.

It is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon XR2+ Gen 2 platform, which enhances display performance and supports advanced user and space tracking features.

Collaboration with Siemens

Sony's partnership with Siemens aims to leverage the system for the industrial metaverse.

The collaboration focuses on Siemens' Xcelerator software, which enhances product development and industrial design through immersive tools.

What Comes Next
