The Finnish manufacturer of virtual reality viewers Varkala, with professional models such as the VR-3 and XR-3, will hold on October 21 a live event in which we can witness the presentation of the launch of what looks like a new device, since on the web created to announce “your most anticipated product” the only photograph is that of a person wearing a VR viewer.
Join us for a live event on Thursday, October 21 and witness the launch of our most anticipated product to date. The time has come. This is what you’ve been waiting for.
Hear our co-founder and CTO Urho Konttori make a revelation that will elevate virtual reality to a whole new playing field.”
The event, to which we can register through this link, will take place on October 21 at 18h CET. Yesterday we published that Varkala it has developed new features for its Varjo lab Tools software. However, it seems that what will be presented a week after the HTC Vive event and a week before the Facebook Connect will be hardware, perhaps a new model of viewer.
So far all the viewers developed by this company have been, by performance and price, aimed at the professional sector, but the phrase used in the promotion of the event “a whole new playing field”, the use of the word playing has spurred early speculation about whether it could be a consumer device (the company’s CTO has confirmed that the release “isn’t just for companies”), if it ultimately turns out to be a new viewer. Varjo’s various VR viewer models are compatible with SteamVR and OpenXR.
