Vrgineers and Somnium Space plan to present together in Las Vegas Flight Sim Expo on June 21 - 23, showing attendees their latest headsets built for the sim community. Vrgineers will be presenting the latest and most advanced XTAL 3 headset with a wide FOV, designed specifically for jetfighter and helicopter pilot training. Somnium Space will be presenting the capabilities of its Somnium VR1 to the public for the first time.

Both showcases will be accompanied by Vrgineers Portable Trainer, a compact simulator that fits in a box. Designed and manufactured by Vrgineers, the compact simulator has been based on the Marine Corps’ requirement for a fast deployable and easily transportable immersive simulator.

Somnium Space has been actively collaborating with Vrgineers, leveraging their combined expertise to develop bespoke headsets for dedicated enthusiasts. Since 2017, Somnium Space has been gathering valuable insights from the consumer space, which, together with Vrgineers' extensive experience in military grade headset development, has led to the creation of the Somnium VR1 headset.

Media and visitors will have the opportunity to meet Marek Polcak, CEO of Vrgineers, who will be present to explain how the Vrgineers dual-use technology supported the development of Somnium VR1 and enhanced the headset's capabilities. Additionally, he will highlight the origins of military-grade technologies in the VR1, co-developed for U.S. Department of Defense and successfully transitioning into this commercial product for the wider VR community.

Artur Sychov, the founder of Somnium Space and the driving force behind the Somnium VR1 headset, will be available to discuss the product development process, the ideas he materialized in the VR1, and its anticipated impact on virtual reality enthusiasts. Additionally, Artur will answer detailed technical questions, providing in-depth insights into the headset's design and functionality.   Attendees can speak to his avatar in real time within the Somnium Space VR platform. He will be showcasing the VR1 headset inside virtual reality, offering a live, immersive experience.

Information on the collaboration, technical specification, and so much more will be announced at the Somnium Connect event on 12 July in Prague, Czech Republic.
