The Future of Screens: Why OLED Will Change Everything

It’s not only rock stars that find good use for OLED. The military is also an early adopter, using microdisplays made byeMagin for training. Microdisplays are 1×1 inches or smaller and used in a wireless headset so the user sees a 2D or 3D interface that changes as they look left to right. The headsets are fairly lightweight and therefore easily portable. eMagin is beginning to apply the same technology for gaming, in which wearing the headsets would replace looking at a screen.

The Biggest Challenges Left In Virtual Reality, According To Oculus



 Even in the impressive Crescent Bay prototype, you’ve only got a 90-degree field of vision, while your eyes are normally capturing 280 degrees. To remove this “binocular” effect (and any visible pixels in your vision), you’d need better lenses and a display with a resolution higher than even Apple’s new Retina 5K iMac, which starts at $2,499. It’s not hard to imagine Oculus getting closer to that ideal spec over the next several years, but it’ll happen with gradual iteration and improvement (and will require early adopters to keep buying high-end rigs for development and gaming).

“I couldn't even guarantee you a 10% chance of a hit anymore” - Capps (and then he goes on to comment on the state of the Game Industry Biz and the hurdles to be overcome if VR is ever going to hit the Mainstream...

VR experienced as a novelty, this is apparent with Oculus, lot of testimony that it's used for a short time then shelved, nausea, 80% returns on Samsung VR, knew it had to be high, did not know it was that high, Oculus' reputation for making users sick is now part of the culture, so he says in so many words, ditch the divemasks, don't release anything until you know it doesn't make people sick.
  So, eMagin and their iHMD. I hope their testing went beyond a focus group comprised of students from nearby Bellevue College.  I hope they put people in Roller Coasters and Formula 1 Cars. In describing the reactions of the focus group  participants to the four HMDs he mentioned Field of View, Resolution, Size and Weight.  He did not say anything about adverse reactions or the subjects filling out a Simulator Sickness Survey. But, if it's true that users did not experience the discomforts that are now in the process of ruining Virtual Reality's reputation then it's not too much to say that Jerry Carollo design could save a nascent industry. To be fair Steam/HTC maintains that their HMD doesn't cause Simulator Sickness but I'm skeptical, the isolation is as complete as the earlier Dive Mask HMDs save some holes in the side of the eyebox that allow for some ventilation and light to the periphery. The problem of size and weight remain. All the admissions that the Oculus Design is flawed have now become industry wide. Palmer Luckey has no clothes. Recent hires indicate that the companies that made large investments in VR,  Facebook, Google know they need a new approach. That points to exactly what Sculley maintained about the problems of current VR Headsets and what Mike Capps says here, there will be no advance until somebody gets the hardware right.

Virtual Reality Expert Tony Parisi Speaking About the Future of VR from DODOcase on Vimeo.

Early on Kopin only alluded to an NDA with a large prestigious company, then a couple of years ago they said publicly thay had an NDA with Google...


Murky waters, blindfolded

now they talk specifics about Google related revenue and namedrop whenever given the opportunity, based on that I'll maintain that there is no Google Stealth development going on with Kopin. No NDA in force. On the other hand not a whisper from eMagin as to that company save the odd circumstance that their VP for Special Projects is working concurrently with Google and eMagin as evidenced by the Employees Linkedin Profile. Or maybe the silence is just driving me bonkers. Could be either one. This guy though believes that the 10% revenue with Google means they will be using Kopin LCDs in Glass II. Not that familiar with the boundaries of what an NDA allows but it seems to me it's like saying "Wow, do I have a big secret, I was sworn to silence but here it is." Doesn't make sense. Then I don't know if Jerry Carollo's Linkedin Profile violates such an agreement or not if one exists. When Sculley said this is a tough business to understand he was not kidding.

Doug Lanman's Abstract for a Near-Eye Lightfield HMD, Doug was at NVIDIA at the time of Publication Now he is at Oculus/Facebook



Figure 1: Enabling thin, lightweight near-eye displays using light field displays. (Left) Our binocular near-eye display prototype is shown, comprising a pair of OLED panels covered with microlens arrays. This design enables a thin head-mounted display, since the black box containing driver electronics could be waist-mounted with longer OLED ribbon cables. (Right) Due to the limited range of human accommodation, a severely defocused image is perceived when a bare microdisplay is held close to the eye. Conventional near-eye displays require bulky magnifying optics to facilitate accommodation. We propose near-eye light field displays as thin, lightweight alternatives, achieving comfortable viewing by synthesizing a light field for a virtual scene located within the accommodation range (here implemented by viewing a microdisplay, depicting interlaced perspectives, through a microlens array)

Cousin Oculus Has the Same Problem...Must Be Hereditary

H.C. Wainwright raises eMagin’s price target on expected accelerated growth

Analyst Kevin Dede, in a research note released to clients on Friday, observed that revenue corresponded to expectations, sustained by strong contract sales, and that costs were kept under control.
“We see room for the valuation multiples to expand further on the premise that estimates should follow, although perhaps over a more protracted period. Competitors trade at valuations greater than 3x EV-to-sales, and we see eMagin’s stock continuing to edge higher,” wrote Dede, explaining the higher price target of US$4.00 from US$2.26 per share in December.
Evaluating eMagin’s revenue growth potential, Dede cited that the company has enjoyed “strong contract sales on the three project deals that total some $6.8M but spread over 30 months.” He also said eMagin is projecting revenues of $26 to $29 million in 2015.

Oculus Rift was obviously Company #1, Wide FOV, bad resolution, screen door effect, BIG, has to be Oculus. I'll guess that the one that had both bad res and bad FOV was the Zeiss Cinemizer as Mr. Energy Drink keeps one on his desk. #3, no idea maybe a Sony HMZ T2
The HMD is going to look a lot more like this eMagin/TATRC Prototype fro Army Telemedicine

then this piece of grunt


what was new this time was Sculley floating the possibilities that other companies are interested in the displays themselves for their own HMDs apart from the housing electronics etc
what was with that random Margaret Kohin mention, well and good but wouldn't a nod to the person she was replacing make sense? Like he didn't want to mention Jerry Carollo, it sort of hung in the air, operating under the presumption that JCs Linkedin profile is accurate and he is working jointly for eMagin and Google, don't believe any of that political bullshit the other board is floating about "bad blood" between them, nonsense
they are aware that of the problems with the dive mask displays and there is no rush as adoption is slow, even Steam's entry is a dive mask with some holes on the side for ventilation, don't think that's the final product from them
Microdisplays will be the winners for these VR Headsets
Fraunhofer has apparently given up on direct patterning, they seem to be concentrating on OLED lighting

Broad based demos of the iHMD are weeks away with some tweaking of color gamut and head-tracking that is conformable to games developed for the infamous piece of shit like Die in a Plane Crash and Virtual Guillotine, just kidding
Based on ema_lurker research I think the most notable companies they will be demoing the hmd for are Google, Oculus, Qualcomm, Microsoft, Apple, Valve (companies we have heard of)

I do not think Morpheus could have been one of the 4 at eMagin's HMD Focus Group, unlike iHMD Sony's leaves (shoebox) room for the user to wear glasses, if you can't see things that close to you maybe you need eSight and not an HMD..Project Morpheus: Eyes-on PS4’s New VR Prototype

I was gratified by Oppenheimer's Mr. Andrew Uerkwitz's Interest in the iHMD. That's where the drama is with this company if you need someplace to hang your hat.

C'mon Recon is not a serious customer

14. It's a wash, not over yet

Rev from Google 11%, interesting, R&D and some samples

PATS already obsolete IMO, discussions with partners over next year, what?

Waffling on DOD R&D, appears to be a non-starter
