Rendever’s Virtual Reality platform for seniors transitions hardware of choice to Pico Interactive’s G2 4K Enterprise headset

In Virtual Reality News

December 9, 2020 – Rendever, a provider of virtual reality (VR) for seniors, has recently announced that it has selected Pico Interactive’s G2 4K Enterprise headset as its hardware of choice, stating that Pico’s G2 4K Enterprise device fits Rendever’s current needs and allows for further developments.

From senior living communities to healthcare and hospice organizations, Rendever states that its platform is being used to reduce depression and loneliness by fostering personal connections amongst populations where life has become limited. VR headsets in each Rendever system are networked, so participants can share synchronous immersive experiences together. Physical limitations are no longer a barrier, as seniors can check off bucket list items together, travel or revisit meaningful places and share stories, stay engaged with family members, and more.

“We are thrilled to work with Pico to provide high quality hardware for our senior living partners. The G2 4K Enterprise headset will not only support our current resident engagement platform, but also allow us to expand our offerings,” said Tom Neumann, Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer at Rendever. “The transition to Pico hardware has been seamless due to the unmatched flexibility of their enterprise offering, and will empower our engineering team to continuously improve our software and add to our suite of custom interactive applications.”

Pico’s G2 4K Enterprise headset features a 4K resolution, 101° field of view, a 16 megapixel single RGB camera, 128 GB storage and a polyurethane facial interface and counterbalanced design that allows for easier cleaning and sharing of devices.

“We are excited to help Rendever best serve its clients, giving seniors a way to explore the world with their family and friends. Rendever’s mission to overcome social isolation is top of mind as we support their transition to the G2 4K Enterprise,” said Ennin Huang, Vice President of Design at Pico Interactive.

Rendever is already rolling out Pico’s headsets across senior living communities and more patient care communities in US. For more information on Rendever, please visit the company’s website. For more information on Pico Interactive please click here.
