Czech Republic-based Somnium Space is the developer of the Somnium VR1 PC VR headset (priced at EUR 1,899 or ~USD 2,100), which offers a wide field of view with dual-aspheric lenses, providing 125 degrees horizontally and 100 degrees vertically. It features high-resolution displays with a resolution of 2,880 x 2,880 pixels per eye, a brightness of 210 nits, and a maximum refresh rate of 120 Hz. The headset supports optional eye tracking, high-quality passthrough using front cameras, and the attachment of a LIDAR sensor for 3D meshing. The headset, weighing between 700 g to 850 g, comes with a 20-foot cable that combines Display Port, USB 3 Gen 2, and power in a single USB-C cable.

Somnium Space aims to change the restrictive policies it believes are established by larger corporations for the VR market. In response to these restrictions, the headset is being built on an open and modular platform. The concept of the Somnium VR1 is based on the availability of 3D headset data, allowing VR enthusiasts to download 3D parts and purchase electronic components, sensors, and lenses directly from Somnium for building their own headset and future maintenance and upgrades.

Additionally, the company is developing a web configurator for the ordering process, which will allow customers to select the features they want, such as eye tracking, hand tracking, and passthrough. The company had plans to release the headset in 2023.

Key customers and partnerships

The company partnered with VR pilot training systems company Vrgineers and 3D printer manufacturer Prusa Research for the development of its headset.
