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.
