‘Varjo Workspace’ Introduces a New Way of Using Computers by Integrating Desktop Applications Inside Immersive VR/XR Environments, Providing an ‘Infinite Desktop’ Experience for Microsoft Windows Which Seamlessly Bridges Mixed Reality and Creative Workflows

Varjo Technologies, a provider of enterprise-grade VR/XR headsets, announced it has developed an innovative new 2D/3D immersive user interface. Code-named ‘Varjo Workspace’, the company’s new Dimensional Interface introduces a new paradigm allowing professionals to easily use Microsoft® Windows® applications and 3D software tools within a human eye-resolution VR or AR environment. With Varjo Workspace, users can seamlessly switch between real, virtual and mixed reality modes and modify their creations while experiencing them in 3D.

Varjo’s Dimensional Interface gives access to the Microsoft Windows desktop at any size and with extreme resolution. All of this is made possible through Varjo’s human eye-resolution capabilities, as no other headset can display readable text on a virtual screen or be able to mix the virtual and real worlds seamlessly together. With Varjo Workspace, it’s now possible to have infinitely-adjustable multiple monitors and to work simultaneously within 2D and 3D worlds – this is a critical part of Varjo’s vision of the future of computing.

The new user interface can be experienced with the company’s recently-announced XR-1 Developer Edition headset, bridging the current 2D UI with the photorealistic 3D world made possible by Varjo’s video pass-through-based mixed reality. Professionals in design, engineering and training can now work within an immersive VR/XR environment while simultaneously using the full power of existing desktop applications. Through Varjo’s Dimensional Interface, professional users can now both experience and modify their 3D models without ever taking off their headset.

For example, Varjo Workspace can be used in the automotive industry to modify a 3D car model using existing CAD and visualization tools like Autodesk® VRED™, Unity™ or Unreal™ while simultaneously observing the model in mixed or virtual reality.
