One of the main goals of the VR device manufacturer is to reach the resolution of the human eye. In this way things in a virtual environment would be presented as if they were in the real world. The Finnish company Varjo, two years ago announced that she is working on a VR helmet that would allow just that. Now they launched their first product, the VR-1 helmet that brings resolution equal to the resolution of the human eye. Of course, this satisfaction has to be paid, so the price of this helmet is $ 6,000.
This helmet brings 60 pixels at one degree of viewing angle, equal to the resolution of the human eye, and 20 times the resolution of other VR devices currently on the market. VR-1 also has the ability to monitor eyes, and the company has announced that this year it plans to offer the AR variant of the helmet.
It is planned that this device is offered only to business users, in industries such as engineering and construction. Varjo’s general manager, Niko Eiden, emphasized that the consumer market is still not warm enough for VR technology, but that it is finding more and more applications in the professional sphere. Therefore, the price of this device is not low, and according to Eiden, in the forthcoming period it will definitely not decrease, because advanced (and expensive) technology is applied, which he believes will find the way to the consumer at that price.
