Human-eye Resolution VR Changes More Than Just Design Reviews

Talk Synopsis:

Varjo makes revolutionary VR/XR hardware and software that together are jumpstarting a new era in immersive computing – where real and digital worlds merge seamlessly in human-eye resolution.

Varjo’s virtual and mixed reality devices will profoundly change the way professionals work, design and create. When we’re done, computers will look nothing like they do right now.

In his talk, Urho Konttori will peek into the future on what it means for design to see things in true-to life virtual reality during design reviews and the whole design process. The next step in design will be a part of the paradigm shift in immersive computing.

The ability to see your product in human-eye resolution VR while you are actually designing creates fundamentally different designs, whether you are designing a boat, airplane, car, architecture or cabling for a building.
