Apple’s Tim Cook On Augmented Reality: ‘It Will Be Huge’


SA Photonics 62/SM employs a an optimized eMagin WUXGA Full Color Display that was developed thru cascaded funding from TATRAC (Army Telemedicine) SOCOM (Spec Ops Command) and MANTECH.

"The single eyepiece is mounted to ballistic eye protection and driven by a smartphone using an MHL-HDMI adapter. The portability provided by the standard smartphone and accompanying electronics module allow for maximum mobility and flexibility. Additionally, the SA-62/SM has a horizontal eyepiece adjustment to ensure proper prism alignment with the user’s pupil. A large exit pupil provides for a comfortable viewing experience even while on the move."

follow him here at his blog where he uses the Nom De Plume, "Travis Johnson", evoking sort of a Stock Market Gunslinger vibe. He so reminds me of the description of the Floor of the Paris Stock Exchange in Tom Wolfe's The Bonfire Of The Vanities when Sherman looks down and sees "men baying for money." It's a good day if you are not living in his skin. Thoreau too, "Most men lead lives of quiet (or noisy in his case) desperation."

Fire Roy Taylor!

Just kidding, he is Roy Techwood, if you want specs try to listen to Carmack,  he couldn't sell ice in a blackout, way before he finished describing the chemical properties of ice, the ambient temperature, atmospheric pressure and effects of climate change on ice the listener would be asleep and the ice melted.Taylor is selling a big concept and more than pixel density and 114 Degrees FOV he is talking to aesthetes and the creative class so he uses "beautiful", the same word grizzled Field Artillery Commander, General Seay, used when he saw the display the first time.  "Beautiful" from a General and a "salesman". The point, they agree.

Long View CR

Elbit TH64

The contract doesn't specify the XACT model but if it's the 64 i.e. thermal then it does use an eMagin display. It has to be the XACT 64 that was rolled out last month. Sculley mentioned obliquely at last CC.  Exhibited at Eurosatory last month.

Google's rumored Mixed-Reality Headset

sounds a lot like Ralph's. After all Osterhout said recently, "in six months, here comes the heavyweights." He must have a fairly good idea what's out there on the Horizon.

Andrew Sculley: So the headset or HMD must be small for comfort like a pair of glasses. Hence it really had to have a microdisplay. The possible used example I want you to imagine you're sitting in a meeting room with some of your colleagues and chairs around the table and a number of empty spaces, all of which you can see through the pair of glasses you're wearing, which is the headset.
Imagine that some of your colleagues aren't in the room, but they have a video camera taking their video and sending it to your headset, so the people not in the room actually appear to you as if they’re in chairs around the table. Now in a still image, you call this is a photoshopped image, but this is a video of what the person is doing at that moment. And when you add sound, you have some virtual attendees at your meeting. So what do you need for something like this?

eMagin Patents Dual AR/VR HMD: Matthew Brennesholtz

It did not work out. So now I bash stocks on a message boards few read. But in my defense, those are some, you have to admit, pretty big words. (ed.note: Funniest Part, akin to GOOGLE!!!)

Seeks to automate the investment research process by gathering company and industry specific data: scrubbing it, assigning quantifiable weightings to it (based on various metrics) and delivering it in a user defined format. Our goal is to develop an investment/stock research engine, akin to GOOGLE (unlike theirs, which is cluttered and requires one to dig too much for locating gems). We intend to take the manual grunt work of analyzing investment opportunities.

that was fast...

Look on the bright side, the Yahoo "conversations" have been cooled off, no more "hot takes" and best of all for you and worst of all non-entities like the Janus of Frankenbissel and Boardwalk97 will have to find other work. Extraneous stuff, off topic will appear, well, extraneous.

Andrew G. Sculley, President and CEO of eMagin Corporation added, “When combined with our OLED microdisplay technology, users reach a new level of uncompromised immersive VR and AR performance. Our OLED microdisplays provide the high contrast, fast response time, vivid colors, and high pixel density (no screen door effects) required for superior VR applications while addressing the ultra-high brightness demanded for AR applications

“One of our goals is to improve upon the current state of VR headset design,” said Kip Kokinakis, President of eMagin’s HMD group. “It is important to us that the form, fit, and feel of the headset enhance users’ overall experience, allowing them to spend more time enjoying the use of the product.” Kokinakis continued, “We also looked at the growing market trend towards mixed reality, or the combining of VR and AR, and designed a unique set of optomechanical elements for switching the headset seamlessly between VR and AR modes.”

Does Dan Cui's Retweet of John Carmack's contention that eMagin's displays have "no physical limits" have any meaning in your High-Concept Universe?

it appears Microsoft is weighing their options.
