Welcome to the developer documentation for Varjo headsets!

You can develop for Varjo headsets with the familiar 3D tools you use today to create immersive experiences. They can easily be adapted to work with Varjo headsets and human-eye resolution.

You can choose to develop for one of these platforms:


Those familiar with Unity engine development can begin straight away. We provide two options for Unity developers. Please read about our Unity XR SDK plugin to get started.


For Unreal developers we offer multiple options that vary by skill level. The simplest way to begin is by starting from Unreal documentation. Examples are available for easier understanding and hands-on experience.


You can develop a Varjo project for custom engines. API endpoints are thoroughly documented with explanations of what you need to do to start your project. Examples are also supplied and well-documented in code.


If you are developing for XR-1 Developer Edition, navigate to the Mixed Reality section. We will explain the differences between VR and MR development, and guide you through the best practices for MR development.

General information can be found on the Varjo website, including blogs, product information, news, and the Varjo store.

The Use Center contains our Getting started guide, as well as a section on Getting to know your headset, FAQs, and downloadable Showcases.
