Varjo’s VR-1 headset promises a Resolution Revolution
February 20, 2019

Let there be sight indeed. After a two year development timeframe, Varjo have announced the VR-1, the world’s first human eye-resolution virtual reality device, the Varjo VR-1. Designed solely for professionals in industrial design, training and simulation, architecture, engineering and construction, the headset has a resolution of more than 60 pixels per degree, which is 20X+ higher than any other VR headset currently on the market.

The VR-1 also comes with world’s most advanced integrated eye tracking, enabling high-precision analytics and interaction with human-eye resolution VR content.

Key features of the Varjo VR-1 include:

Varjo’s Bionic Display sets a new standard for high-end professional VR work with iconic human-eye resolution visual fidelity, where every detail, shape, contour, text and surface of a design comes into never-before-seen focus.

Proprietary 20/20 Eye Tracker is claimed to be the most advanced and powerful stereo eye tracking technology ever integrated into a VR headset – delivering unmatched precision and accuracy for interactivity, data collection and analysis in human-eye resolution.

Supporting major professional 3D software tools and engines (already including Unreal, Unity, Autodesk VRED, PREPAR3D, ZeroLight, and VBS Blue IG), VR-1 takes graphics to new heights in real-life visual fidelity. A powerful Varjo SDK also enables integration to custom 3D engines.

The Varjo VR-1 Human Eye-Resolution VR headset for industrial use will retail at $5,995 with an additional yearly service license of $995 USD, and is only available for businesses and academic institution.
