Varjo Rivals Human Eye-Resolution with a VR Headset

Virtual Reality has been a dream for a very long time, so when headsets first came out, people were understandably excited. Unfortunately, the image quality was so poor that while VR was engaging, it wasn’t realistic enough to be immersive.

VR devices suffer from a poor quality of resolution—one that’s only a fraction of what the human eye can achieve. Varjo’s Bionic Display has overcome that hurdle, creating a resolution of 60 pixels per degree. That resolution is so detailed that it rivals 20/20 vision of the human eye.

With Varjo, you’re able to see every detail, from textures and contours to colours and depth. That amount of detail makes Varjo perfect for training simulation as well as for CADs and renderings. This could be vitally important especially in industrial settings where lives can literally be on the line if the smallest detail is missed.

Varjo uses 20/20 Eye Tracker to track your eye’s movement and to create a stereo image. The tracker is so accurate that it has an error rate of within one degree. It also works with Unreal, Unity, Autodesk VRED, Prepar3D, and other 3D engines, providing designers with the highest visual fidelity and precision.
