Develop for the VR-1

The Varjo software will be made available for downloading in early March 2019.


These pages introduce you to the different tools and engines you can use for development on the Varjo VR-1.  

You can develop experiences for the Varjo VR-1 using the familiar 3D tools you use today that enable immersive experiences. Now they are just adapted to work with the Varjo VR-1 and human-eye resolution. 

Some of the features that allow creating great immersion using the Varjo VR-1: 

  • Humaneye resolution allows the user to see details never before possible in VR. Our patented Bionic Display™ system has no screen door effect and it shows you an image as clear and as real as in the real world. 
  • VR-1 comes with built-in eye tracking. You can use eye tracking for your application – for example for analytics data collection or during a training scenario to see where the user has been looking. For more information, read Eye tracking with Varjo VR-1. 
  • You can develop your application with realistic hand presence – any tracking devices using SteamVR™ tracking technology are supported. That includes for example the Vive Wands, Knuckles, and Vive Trackers.  
  • Varjo VR-1 has six degrees of freedom, allowing users to physically move around in virtual reality – seated or standing.  

You can choose to develop for one of these platforms (more coming in the future):
