VARJO AERO

Vajo Aero makes professional-grade fidelity in VR more accessible than ever before. With a resolution of 35 pixels per degree, Varjo Aero offers stunning realism for virtual simulations and completely eliminates the screen-door effect and god rays.

With variable resolution aspheric lenses, the difference is crystal clear.

The Varjo Aero features a cutting-edge optical design that propels users to a new level of visual fidelity, pushing the pixels tighter together directly in front of you. The variable resolution lenses create an ultra-sharp peak resolution of 35 PPD, right at the centre of focus where it matters most – mimicking the way the human eye works. Alternative commercially available headsets max out closer to 20 PPD.

Compared to the murky experience of consumer-grade Fresnel lenses, the lenses in the Aero are aspheric, offering an incredible true-to-life visual experience that makes god rays and the screen-door effect a thing of the past.

Automatically tailored to you.

Varjo Aero comes with the world’s most advanced built-in eye tracking at 200Hz. It features an automatic, mechanical interpupillary distance adjustment that always delivers the best possible visual quality for each user.

With our one-dot calibration, it takes seconds to have the headset find the perfect optical fit tuned to your eyes. The eye tracking also allows for advanced dynamic foveated rendering to take place to further enhance application performance.

Welcome to business class comfort.

Varjo Aero’s advanced ergonomics and reduced weight make it the most comfortable VR headset ever made. The device is designed to feel weightless, allowing you to escape gravity and be completely immersed in your VR experience.

A perfected combination of our industry-leading three-point precision head strap, a carefully calibrated counterweight, and active cooling, make multi-hour VR sessions for flying, driving, or designing a pleasure to complete.

Delivering the precision that pilots need.

VRM Switzerland is one of the pioneering companies who have tested and used Varjo Aero in early access. They have been able to take advantage of the ultra high fidelity, true-to-life visual experience provided by the new headset. VRM’s state-of-the-art helicopter motion simulation platform features Varjo Aero as a key component.

The result? A flight simulation experience that is so immersive and realistic that it has in fact already been certified by the EASA, the European Union Aviation Safety Agency, for professional pilots to log virtual reality flight hours.
