As the company Varjo announces, the Varjo VR-1 can now be pre-ordered. The VR glasses are supposed to offer a very good picture quality through a “Bionic Display”.
Varjo VR-1 with Bionic Display for 6000 Euro available
The Varjo VR-1 relies on two displays per eye. A bionic display is responsible for the focused area of the eye (20 degrees of the field of view) and a “context display” for the rest of the environment. The Bionic display, for which Varjo was recently able to find new investors, should come to 60 pixels per degree and thus offer an enormous sharpness. In comparison: The Oculus Rift only comes to 16.14 pixels per degree. However, the display is not flexible and thus the exact position is fixed.
But even the second display does not need to hide. For the rest of the field of view, which is not covered by the Bionic Display, 1440 x 1600 pixels are available. The complete field of view should be at 87 degrees.
Varjo consistently targets other companies, not consumers, with the new VR glasses. An AR review is also planned for the Varjo VR-1 later this year. A system for tracking the eyes is already integrated and the tracking of the glasses is realized via SteamVR.
