Customized Corrective Lenses
As the only headset on the market, XTAL offers an unmatched experience for customers with diopters. The XTAL 3 has a simple attachment system for additional prescription lens inserts that replace glasses used for common eye disorders.
Vrgineers manufactures customized lenses per customer's anamnesis in cooperation with the ophthalmologist. Therefore, helicopter pilots, airliners, or instructors can comfortably use the headset during the whole training session without any limits.
The XTAL technology can be modified hardware-, firmware-, and software-wise to fit specific use cases perfectly. Vrgineers specializes in advanced training technologies using virtual and mixed reality, including building flight simulators, and has experience with XTAL integration into the pilot helmet.
Additional sensors or specific chips can extend the technology while keeping high-security standards.
Integrated Eye Tracking
Eye-tracking technology tracks and gathers pilot's gaze in real-time. The instructors can use the data for debriefing and behavioral analyses visualized via heatmaps after the session. The instructors and pilots benefit from identifying of problems with scanning patterns, increasing their awareness and efficiency in standard procedures.
Unique Hand Tracking
Embedding the most advanced infrared hand tracking module from Ultraleap enables pilots to interact with the virtual cockpit by simply pointing their fingers at flight controls.
The default configuration of XTAL headset comes with SteamVR tracking sensors. However, it can be upgraded with additional tracking technology. The customer can choose from a variety of supported tracking systems fitting the specific use case.

„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.“
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.“

„We also got to implement your headset in an Unreal Demo, which looks even more awesome.“
One of the biggest VR media platform
„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.“
