Varjo XR-4 Headset Promises "True Human Vision" in Mixed Reality

The company wants to recreate human vision using passthrough cameras.

Varjo has presented the XR-4 Series, a lineup of headsets fit for enterprise and government use. The company promises to "connect the world’s most advanced mixed reality technology with the pinnacle of graphical processing power" in the series, creating "highest-level visual fidelity and immersion."

The headsets use 4K 200-nit mini-LED displays with a 90 Hz refresh rate and 96% DCI-P3 color gamut to achieve this quality. Custom full-dome aspheric lenses support 28 million pixels across the 120° x 105° field of view to make your experience as alive as possible.

Varjo promises true human vision replicated by dual 20-megapixel cameras "powering up to 51 PPD (pixels per degree) passthrough and the world’s first gaze-driven XR autofocus system." 

Naturally, it has high-quality eye tracking that enables automatic IPD adjustment and dynamic foveated rendering.

Varjo is offering 3 versions of the XR-4: the standard one with 33 PPD passthrough for $3,990, the Focal Edition featuring 51 PPD passthrough with autofocus for $9,990, and the Secure Edition for government use – it's TAA compliant and doesn't need online connection.

"With inside-out tracking, integrated spatial audio system complete with noise cancelling microphones, and controllers with advanced haptic feedback, the XR-4 is ready to be scaled across the enterprise out-of-the-box."

At first, the company is going to sell the headset to organizations and later give this opportunity to individuals. All of this functionality requires a powerful PC to work, so be sure you're ready for it or just buy one from the company's website. The first shipments are expected in December.
