    Varjo is a really cool prototype, using two panels per eye it manages to provide better than 20/20 vision in VR:

    Sound good to me, but smaller FOV then existing headsets but not available till Q4 and requires developers to include their plugin to support it.

    Very interresting indeed. And great idea to include a high res screen only in the center where the eyes really see the details. Higher resolution in the peripheral vision is not so useful and consumes a lot of calculation power from the PC.
    However, FOV is around 100 °, similar to current VR headset. Who do you say it is smaller than existing headset ?

    The company CEO says the FOV is 90 degrees horizontal, smaller than the Vive, at 8m15s
