This is the most immersive VR headset I have ever used - nothing else comes even close. In case you’re wondering, both headsets felt comfortable to wear.

Bryant Church

Former U.S. Naval Aviator

The XTAL’s wide field-of-view, high resolution optics, and seamless integration of physical controls creates that magical VR moment of presence where the brain believes what it’s experiencing is really happening. This creates effective mental and muscle memories. The increased cost efficiencies, time savings, safety margins, and accelerated learning curves over real world ops is dramatic.

Capt. Taimeir

F/A-18 Pilot

The feeling that I got while flying the F/A-18 in full VR mode is really astonishing and so close to reality to the point that I felt emotionally inside the F/A-18, which is exactly what I need for training purposes and for more military and civilian applications.

Charles Jackson

Eurofighter Typhoon Pilot Training AR/VR Lead

VRgineers is currently the only provider of an enterprise-level, high-resolution, ultra-wide field of view (FoV) VR headset. The XTAL has been a key part in the development of a Eurofighter Typhoon prototype high fidelity VR Simulator enabling clear symbology and wide FoV visuals that are crucial for pilot combat training.

PROPRIETARY VR LENSES Patented non-Fresnel VR lenses were designed by a custom RayTraced optical engine to create a realistic view with undeformed images.
PRECISE EYE-TRACKING
SYSTEMS
The integrated eye-tracking system gathers gaze information for debriefing and behavior analysis visualized via heat maps. Eye-tracking uses unique one-dot calibration for IPD adjustment and foveated rendering.
SUPREME COMFORT The XTAL 3 offers supreme comfort. The headset is 30% lighter than the previous XTAL 2 allowing a longer duration of usage.
