Today’s Immersive VR Buzz: Varjo’s XR-1 Developer Edition Now Available and Shipping

Good morning from Orlando, where Varjo has just announced pricing and immediate availability for its hotly-anticipated XR headset – in Magic Leap’s virtual backyard no less!

The XR-1 is the only true professional-grade headset that is capable of human eye resolution as well as seamlessly blending the real and virtual worlds, thanks to an innovative video pass-through design.

The release and full press kit may be downloaded from here –

On a related note – Varjo still has a few slots remaining for our upcoming press tour the week of December 9 in SF and NYC, where we will be showcasing the extraordinarily cool ‘Dimensional Interface’ for our headsets, coming in 2020 – it will truly blow you away and we hope you see this as worthy of demoing via embargo. 😀 Shoot me back an email and we will happily schedule this for you.

What is 360 VR Video?

360 video is a video that is recorded in all directions at the same time with multiple cameras. The videos are stitched together either internally in the camera or externally using special software.

It then forms one spherical video that is controlled by the viewer, enabling them to look up, down, right or left at their discretion.

Is 360 Video Virtual Reality?

I want you to be the judge.
