The resolution of Virtual Reality devices on the market is just 1/100 of what the average human eye can see. This means that all visual details are lost due to heavy pixelization, which makes these products rather useless in professional applications. Varjo is the first and only company in the world to deliver human-eye resolution virtual and mixed reality devices, meeting the most demanding enterprise applications across training and simulation, design and engineering and research. With the latest funding round, the Finnish startup has raised $100 million in total.

These data centres and cloud providers consume 6% of the global electricity and generate 4% of the global CO2 emissions, posing a serious threat to the environment. The digital industry is trying to minimise its impact on the environment with different attempts, and the Spanish startup Submer is doing its part. The EIC-funded project is changing data centres to make them as sustainable as possible.
