Varjo, a virtual reality company that creates dual-resolution displays, has a new generation of VR and AR headsets. The company is promising that they will be offering a wider field of view, even higher resolution, and augmented reality with advanced depth mapping.
The VR and AR headsets have two panels for each eye. It has a small 1920 x 1920 display at the center of the eye and a 2880 x 2720 display for rest of the screen. This creates a very clear image when a user is looking straight ahead and a standard virtual reality resolution for the peripheral vision. The earlier Varjo headset had a considerably narrow with a boxy field of view.
Varjo is not going to launch the updated headset anytime sooner to customers. The XR-3 is priced at $5,495, which requires a 1 year $1,495 software support subscription, while the VR-3 is priced at $3,195 and requires a $795 subscription.
