    It saw the news of Intel potentially finally releasing 10nm and was so shocked it fell over. We're currently trying to get it back up.

    It took some rope, a few devs, @Dogbert666 and a wizard but we've got it back up.

    The Vive Pro Eye is literally a Vive Pro with an eye-tracker (of unknown performance*) installed. Same panels, same lenses, etc. The Vive Cosmos is closer to a Windows MR HMD than a standalone HMD, a sit requires a tether to a not-included device (PC or otherwise) to provide an image.

    * Very likely not adequate for foveated rendering (which demands exceptionally bonkers low input latencies) or they would be shouting it from the heavens. HTC also are not providing any APIs - for foveated rendering or otherwise - so it's pure roll-your-own-solution here.
