Varjo announces tool to capture and spatially explore real-world locations

Product updates

  • Varjo announced the launch of "Teleport," a tool capable of converting real-world locations using a smartphone, which can subsequently be spatially explored on a PC VR headset. The service is slated to launch later this year.

  • Once the scene is scanned using a smartphone, the software combines 3D Gaussian splatting and machine learning to recreate the scene with accurate lighting, shading, textures, and reflections. It can be displayed through Varjo headsets, other Open XR-based PC VR devices, or flat on Windows computers.

  • Given their need for interaction with remote locations, the tech is expected to benefit from training applications, remote assistance, and mission planning. 

  • Analyst QuickTake: Tools for viewing spatial content have continued to surge, with Gracia AI raising USD 1.2 million to create photorealistic volumetric videos for VR and AR experiences. Further, NVIDIA’s Neural Radiance Field (NeRF) photogrammetry service for capturing VR environments may see an update shifting to utilizing Gaussian splatting, allowing for streamlined capture of real-world locations with real-time rendering.
