Develop a new reality.

XR-1 is a mixed reality developer device for engineers, researchers and designers who are pioneering a new reality.

With photorealistic visual fidelity, ultra-low latency and integrated eye tracking, XR-1 seamlessly merges virtual content with the real world for the first time ever.

Varjo XR–1 Developer Edition

Truly merge virtual and reality

Blend the real and the virtual with XR-1, the only device that lets you build truly photorealistic mixed reality scenarios.

Introducing Varjo XR-1 Developer Edition.

For the first time ever, professionals in engineering, design and simulation can see virtual content as it should appear – indistinguishable from the real world.
With XR-1, you’ll see real and virtual content with ultra-high definition stereo pass-through, which enables pixel-perfect control of colors, lights and shadows in full FOV and with ultra-low latency.

You can also switch seamlessly between VR and XR, bringing the best of all worlds together into one device. XR-1 also features the integrated 20/20 Eye Tracker, which can be used for unique user research and data analytics.

XR-1 will be available in the second half of 2019.


Explore XR-1


Let there be sight.

The era of professional VR starts now with VR-1, the world’s only VR device with human-eye resolution. Designed for use in complex industries that demand the highest visual fidelity, VR-1 also features the world’s most advanced integrated eye tracking technology and is compatible with the most popular professional 3D software tools.

Watch the film to see how VR-1 makes virtually everything possible.

Bionic Display™

It’s a Resolution Revolution.

The resolution of other VR devices is a fraction of what the average human eye can see. Varjo’s Bionic Display™ delivers an unprecedented human-eye resolution of 60 pixels per degree. It revolutionizes professional VR by bringing every detail, texture, contour and color into 20/20 focus – even for users who wear glasses or contact lenses.

“Varjo VR-1 lets us establish a seamless VR workflow.”

20/20 Eye Tracker™

Power and precision with 20/20 Eye Tracker™.

Varjo’s 20/20 Eye Tracker™ is the most advanced eye tracking technology ever integrated into a VR device. Designed to work in human-eye resolution with sub-degree accuracy, 20/20 Eye Tracker™ enables eye data analytics for training and simulation, research, industrial design and more.

“The more realistic you can get, the more effective you are.”
