Varjo Headset

The Varjo XR-3/VR-3 is a mixed reality (MR) headset produced by Varjo, a Finnish company specializing in high-resolution virtual and mixed reality headsets.


  • High-resolution displays: The XR-3 boasts dual 20-megapixel Micro-OLED displays, offering a resolution of 5120 x 3520 pixels per eye. This translates to a significantly higher pixel density compared to most VR headsets, resulting in a sharper and more realistic visual experience.
  • Lidar depth sensing (XR-3 only): The XR-3 model features a built-in lidar sensor, which allows it to accurately map the real world and blend virtual objects seamlessly with the user’s surroundings. This is particularly beneficial for applications like industrial training and design, where users need to interact with virtual objects in a real-world context.
  • Eye tracking: Both the XR-3 and VR-3 come with integrated eye tracking technology. This enables features like foveated rendering, which reduces the graphical workload by focusing computational resources on the area where the user is looking, and gaze-based interaction, allowing users to control elements in the virtual environment simply by looking at them.
  • Wide field of view: The XR-3 and VR-3 offer a field of view of 120 degrees horizontally and 105 degrees vertically, providing users with a more immersive experience compared to traditional VR headsets with narrower fields of view.
  • Hand tracking: Both models are compatible with optional hand tracking solutions, allowing users to interact with virtual objects naturally using their hands.
