Lightweight, compact smart glasses

Lightweight, compact smart glasses

Oct 15, 2018 United States
Researchers have developed a fundamentally new approach to a see-through display for augmented reality, or smart glasses. By projecting images from the glass directly onto the eye, the new design could one day make it possible for a user to see information such as directions or restaurant ratings while wearing a device almost indistinguishable from traditional glasses.

Lightweight, compact VR glasses made with large-area microdisplays

Dec 5, 2017 Germany
VR glasses are increasingly popular, but they have usually been heavy and oversized - until now. Large-area microdisplays are expected to change that, because they make it possible to produce ergonomic and lightweight VR glasses. The new OLED displays now reach very high frame rates and achieve extremely high resolutions with "extended full HD".

High-performance OLED microdisplays for next-generation smart glasses

Nov 28, 2017 Europe
A consistent trend across the tech sector is the one-upmanship of increasingly high screen resolution and larger display size. Yet, the fact that the former increases faster than the latter means that manufacturers must achieve ever-higher pixel density. Large OLED microdisplays developed under the LOMID project could help solve that problem, thereby providing Europe with a competitive edge.
