Varjo’s Innovative Dual-Rez VR & AR Headsets Are More Affordable Than Ever

Varjo’s virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) headsets have never been marketed toward the common consumer. Instead, they’ve taken on a role as one of the virtual world’s leading outfits for in-house development, providing professional-grade peripherals to artists, designers, and engineers. Now, the brand is amplifying its range with the more capable VR- and XR-3 — elaborative platforms which enhance the capabilities of their predecessors.

The Varjo VR-3 and XR-3 certainly look the part, producing photorealistic workspaces through the use of their PC-tethered architecture. Within, each device will utilize the brand’s newly-implemented 1920 x 1920 (and 2880 x 2720 peripheral) displays, allowing for a wider field of view, increased resolution, and crystal-clear visualization at a precise, 90Hz refresh rate. While the VR-3 is catered toward more traditional design practices, the XR-3 introduces an array of cutting-edge LIDAR sensors for true augmented reality implementation, merging its video feed with more substantial versions of common virtual items. As a result, companies who are willing to invest in the platforms will be gifted with the industry’s highest resolution, enhanced peripheral performance, and more intuitive interaction, paving the way for less-expensive consumer models in the future. Head to Varjo’s website, where the headsets are listed for sale at $3,850 (VR-3) and $6,618 (XR-3).
