It is also the first headset from Varjo offering up a resolution upwards of 60 pixels per degree, which is a value 20 times higher than any virtual reality headset available currently. The VR-1 is also equipped with state of the art integrated-type eye-tracking technology, which enables highly accurate analytics and seamless interaction with virtual reality content with human-eye resolution.

The VR-1 headset from the Varjo stable is also the developer’s first product to use its renowned patent and optics technology. These technologies have been developed over the last couple of years by the more than 100 developers, engineers, and developers working for the company. Many of these individuals are highly skilled with past employment in companies like Intel, Microsoft, Nokia, and NVIDIA.

Varjo has been an active collaborator, having been associated with various global-level Early Access partners, including Audi, Saab, Volkswagen, Sellen, AirBus, Volvo, Bohemia Interactive Simulations, and Foster & Partners. The VR-1 has been customised for each of these brands to achieve their respective objectives.

The Varjo VR-1 is being sold and shipped to 34 countries across Europe and North America, apart from Hong Kong. The device is retailing for $5995 USD currently, and $995 USD has to be paid annually for an additional service licence. The VR-1 is not available in the consumer market and can be availed by business organisations and educational institutions. It can effectively perform in demanding use-cases which demand unparalleled visual fidelity. Some use case instances include VR pilot training and VR-based prototype designing and interaction. Using the device can help to save considerable costs, time, and modelling expenses.
