Introducing Varjo XR-3, the only true mixed reality headset.

Varjo XR-3 delivers the most immersive mixed reality experience ever constructed, featuring photorealistic visual fidelity across the widest field of view of any XR headset. And with depth awareness, real and virtual elements blend together naturally.

Unmatched mixed reality performance.

Varjo XR-3

  • Photorealistic, true-to-life mixed reality powered by low-latency, 12-megapixel video pass-through.
  • The industry’s highest resolution (over 70 ppd) and the widest field of view (115°).
  • The widest-ever color gamut matches 99% with sRGB and 93% with DCI-P3 color space for the most realistic scenes ever produced.
  • Depth awareness powered by LiDAR for pixel-perfect real-time occlusion and 3D world reconstruction.
  • Integrated Ultraleap hand tracking and integrated 200 Hz eye tracking for natural interactions.
  • Inside-out tracking, offering flexibility for deployments without the need for base stations.

Welcome to the only photorealistic mixed reality.

The world’s only human-eye resolution (over 70 PPD) mixed reality headset with the widest field of view (115 degrees) guarantees the most naturally immersive mixed reality experience ever constructed.

With precise and individually calibrated colors for unmatched realism, the Varjo XR-3 sets a new industry standard for visual fidelity across realities.

Change reality as you know it.

Varjo’s video pass-through technology is vastly superior to the standard optical see-through systems used in other augmented reality headsets – making Varjo XR-3 the only device where virtual objects look real instead of appearing as holographic augmentations.

With ultra-low latency (< 20 ms) and a high-fidelity 12-megapixel video stream, you can explore true-to-life virtual visualizations as natural extensions of the real world. You can also effortlessly switch between XR, AR, and VR.

This image simulates what you see when you look through an optical see-through device compared to Varjo's video pass-through based mixed reality. Varjo XR-3 image rendered with Autodesk VRED.


Compatible with the 3D applications you already use.

Varjo’s XR/VR headsets are compatible with a fast-growing number of professional 3D platforms and software, including Unity, Unreal Engine, OpenXR (in early 2021), Autodesk VRED, PREPAR3D, and VBS Blue IG among others.

Industry-first LiDAR for mixed reality.

Varjo XR-3 depth awareness combines the LiDAR sensor and stereo RGB video feed to set a new benchmark for hand, object and people occlusion – pixel-perfectly blending real and virtual elements. And with real-time 3D room reconstructions, you can easily build realistic immersive environments of your surroundings.

Natural, effortless interactions.

Use hands naturally and intuitively with Ultraleap, the world’s most advanced hand tracking. It captures all the complexities of your natural hand movements to precisely replicate real-life interactions with either virtual or real contents.

And with Varjo’s built-in eye tracking at 200 Hz powering foveated rendering, the headset shows what the user is directly looking at in full resolution. Similar to how the human eye works. You can also utilize the eye tracking data for sophisticated training analysis or research purposes.

Perform in total comfort with the most advanced ergonomic design.

Varjo XR-3 is designed with a 3-point precision fit headband to enable maximum comfort for all head shapes and sizes, even during longer immersive sessions. Automatic IPD, active cooling, 90 Hz frame rate, and our ultra-wide, crystal clear non-Fresnel lenses ensure that you can work comfortably without any eye strain or simulator sickness. With hygienic, easy-to-clean materials, the headset is suitable for multi-user setups. You can also use the Varjo XR-3 comfortably with glasses.
