How do you find the screen of your VR headset? While Sony PSVR, Pixel DayDream and Oculus screens are decent, they leave a lot to be desired. You really don’t want to see pixels running around. Varjo’s VR-1 is here to change that reality for you with its super high-resolution center panel.
But only if you are willing to shell out $5,995 combined with an annual service fee of $995. The price tag is obviously aimed at professionals as the Finnish company mentions that the VR headset is “only available for businesses and academic institutions.”
Claimed to be the world’s only VR device with human-eye resolution, VR-1 features advanced integrated eye tracking technology and is compatible with the most popular professional 3D software tools.
Its center panel is what Varjo calls Bionic Display, which is said to deliver an unprecedented resolution of 60 pixels per degree – the equivalent of 20/20 vision. Its 1920 x 1080 ‘micro-OLED’ display offers a resolution of 3,000 pixels per inch (PPI), in comparison PSVR only has 386 ppi.
