Rich Display and Balanced Design
The PICO G3’s full HD and vivid display comes through a Fresnel lens set, which suppresses distortion and dispersion and corrects the halo effect caused by stray light, common when using ordinary Fresnel lens in a dark environment. This means with the G3 lens, users can enjoy immersive audio-visual and visual experiences without being interrupted by glare. The headset’s high-density display is combined with a 4K resolution, providing unique depth, clarity and smoothness. A clearer image that reduces dizziness and eye strain comes through a 3-position IPD adjustment setting.
With a balanced formfactor that includes a front HMD and a rear battery pack, the PICO G3 is designed to feel light and comfortable and is designed to accommodate the use of glasses without any additional pressure on the face, making it more inclusive for users that need prescription glasses to see. A hygienic and detachable face cushion allows users to easily clean the face cushion on each side after it is used.

Advanced customization is seamlessly accessed through the PICO Business Suite, which is integrated with the PICO G3. This enables users to access extra settings and configurations for system functions and includes such features as customizing the homescreen, enabling kiosk mode, and controlling and streaming content among multiple devices in your network, increasing scalability for classroom settings or corporate training.
