Pimax Portal is (kind of) like a Meta Quest 2 and Steam Deck had a baby

Virtual reality headsets are a lot of fun, but they’re not always the most convenient. The battery life on headsets like the Meta Quest 2 or PICO 4 can be lackluster and there’s the not-insignificant factor that they only work strapped to your face.

However, Pimax may be looking to change that. First reported by PC Gamer (opens in new tab), Pimax has announced a new project called Pimax Portal (opens in new tab), which looks to combine a handheld gaming device with a virtual reality headset. The OS is built to run all Android games but can also run some console emulators and, of course, VR games. The VR games must be streamed from a PC running Steam.
