Varjo raises $31M in Series B
We’re about to make industrial-grade VR a reality. With our latest funding round, led by Atomico and joined by Next47, we’re on track to deliver the world’s first human-eye resolution VR product for complex and design-driven industries. The investment will be used to grow our hardware and software teams from 80 to 200+ over the next year.Press release › Open positions ›
A new kind of
Today we’re revolutionizing reality with technology that lets you see VR in human-eye resolution. That’s the first step on the road to a completely new kind of computing - where VR and XR become a natural extension of the real world.See how ›
The resolution of VR devices on the market today is 1/100 of what the average human eye can see. The industry was around 20 years away from solving this problem. We didn’t think the world should have to wait that long.See the technology ›
Develop with VR that’s as clear as the real world
We’re partnering with the world’s most recognized brands to bring a Resolution Revolution™ to professional markets. Will you be one of them?Get early access ›
The world’s most
We think that technology that’s hurtling the world into the future has to be future-proof. That’s why our first professional VR device, launching later this year, will be upgradeable. In 2019, owners of Varjo’s device will be able to upgrade with a Mixed Reality Add-on that delivers true cinematic-quality XR for the first time ever.
This is the next step on the road to a new immersive computing - where you can no longer tell what’s real and what’s virtual.
Varjo in the news
A flight simulator demo places the user inside a virtual cockpit. Looking around, it is possible to see all of the dials, switches and radar screens in realistic detail. When you look directly at a lever or button, you can even read the words written on it – something that VR usually struggles with.
Varjo has developed a prototype virtual reality (VR) headset that its makers claim gives an image 50 times sharper than most other headsets currently on the market.
When I tested the prototype, the level of detail in the small central area of vision was certainly impressive – as close to the real thing as I’ve come across.
Earlier this month, Google virtual reality head Clay Bavor discussed the company’s efforts on a mind-boggling 20 megapixel screen that was currently under development. The screens would be a staggering 17x resolution improvement on displays in current generation VR systems like the Rift and Vive.
