“20|20” – the first human eye-resolution immersive display
29 September 2017
Varjo Technologies is demonstrating the world’s first head mounted display that replicates how the human eye naturally works.
Designed for professional users and with resolutions more than 70X beyond any currently shipping or announced head-mounted display (including Magic Leap), this major technology advancement enables unprecedented levels of Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality (VR/AR/MR) realism. This is accomplished by Varjo’s patented technology that replicates how the human eye naturally works, creating a super-high-resolution image to the users gaze direction. This is further combined with video-see-through (VST) technology for unparalleled AR/MR capabilities.
Codenamed “20|20” after perfect vision, Varjo’s prototype is based on unique technology created by a team of optical scientists, creatives and developers who formerly occupied top positions at Microsoft, Nokia, Intel, Nvidia and Rovio. This technology will be shipping in Varjo-branded products specifically for professional users and applications starting in late Q4, 2017.
Varjo has demonstrated 20|20 to more than 30 technology journalists and analysts worldwide. Comparative images between different headsets and more can be found here.
