VRgineers’ new XTAL headset

VRgineers has launched XTAL, a new VR headset for designers and engineers who design, create, prototype, teach or train, requiring superior image quality and accuracy, wide field-of-view, easy integration and data security.

The product features AutoEye, the company’s proprietary technology that automatically aligns lens positions with the user’s eyes, and an embedded Leap Motion sensor. Users can also configure the interpupillary distance.

Using 180 by 180 degrees hand-tracking, the headset features voice commands through its built-in microphone and voice-recognition software. With genuine leather-face cushion, patented non-Fresnel lenses and a 170-degree field-of-view, the new product is 12 percent easier than the company’s previous headset, the VRHero, and fully optimized for NVIDIA Quadro professional GPUs.

“Over the last year, we’ve invested hundreds of hours talking to our enterprise users across industries, gathering feedback and learning what makes VR usage in professional applications difficult,” says Marek Polcak, VRgineers CEO. “Then we put all our passion into creating the next generation VR headset that addresses these issues. We firmly believe XTAL will become an indispensable component of engineering, manufacturing, designing, training and enable you to do more while saving resources, money and time.”
