The PlayStation VR2 Headset shows off an orb-like design which is used to represent the 360-degree view that players feel when they enter the virtual reality world. Senior Art Director – Yujin Morisawa at Sony Interactive Entertainment who led the headset design of the PlayStation VR2 had explained:
When I started to work on the design for the PlayStation VR2 headset, one of the areas I wanted to focus on first was the idea of creating a vent in the headset to let air out, similar to the vents on the PS5 console that allows airflow. Our engineers came up with this idea as a good way to allow ventilation and avoid having the lens fog up while players are immersed in their VR games.
I worked on many design concepts to achieve this, and in the final design, you can see there is a little space in between the top and front surface of the scope that contains the integrated ventilation. I am really proud of how this turned out and the positive feedback I have gotten so far. I hope our PlayStation fans will also agree, and I can’t wait for them to try it out.
