3D display solves eye fatigue for AR and VR comfort

Although the approach would work with any modern display technology, the researchers used an organic light emitting diode (OLEDs) display, one of the newest display technologies to be used on commercial televisions and mobile devices. The extremely high resolution available from the OLED display ensured that each subpanel contained enough pixels to create a clear image.

Point being the F-35 Program is under a lot of scrutiny

and "take your time" on readiness and deliverability and cost is getting old. Process will speed up and feelings will not be spared.

Prediction: eMagin High Brightness OLED Display Will Surpass Level Six Readiness Late This Summer and CEO Sculley Will Be Able to Pronounce Patuxent (Paw-tux-int) Naval Air Station Correctly

The Navy and the F-35 joint program office plan to conduct an at-sea test for the Joint Strike Fighter carrier variant in September, assessing fixes for the helmet's green-glow problems and catapult ride quality, according to an official. James Ruocco, F-35 chief engineer, told Inside the Navy during a May 26 interview at his office in Arlington, VA, his team performed an assessment two weeks ago at Naval Air Station Patuxent, MD, of the Gen III helmet's green-glow problem. Green-glow...

Thanks Jim. Just read the report. Analyst admits target is conservative. "On the cusp of realizing consumer potential...The question in our minds is no longer if, but when "

I think I sold a torch this week, Dan, there is a whole new style of night Surf fishing that requires kayaking out 200 yards and dropping bait with a Hawaiian octopus sinker, kayak back and wait for the kind of fish that is not going to come close enough for a cast. Maybe not so hot for paddling out as Torch is not impermeable but great for observation without having to take huge lanterns when you fish

Shark Week

a guy next to me on the beach was landing something large(insert Jaws music). I was helping him drag the critter through the surf, all that was visible were dorsal and caudal fin. The law where we fished did not allow any shark to be pulled out of the surf. So there he was standing in the surf, in the twilight. He held the line with one hand and an iPhone with the other recording the event. As the shark came closer to the shore a very large mouth opened at his feet. A 71/2 foot sand tiger. I took the line and kept it taut when he prudently fled back up the beach. Had he had two free hands as he recorded the capture he would not have felt his so vulnerable, both eyes were fixed on his cell phone screen as he came a little too close to the snapping jaws. I finished recording the catch and he cut the line to free the shark. I pitched hands free and night vision. Tried it on and was sold. Would have come in handy as another guy caught a hundred pound stingray that lost track of his line as it crossed under other lines.  Modern Fishing Show, Outdoor Channel?

As an aside...Sculley seemed to take relish in saying that "eMagin is the only OLED Display Made in USA" ...

which precludes Kopin from even an attempt at qualifying their Olightek/Kopin Displays for any DOD programs. That said, IMO when we find out where eMagin's manufacturing partner/partners are located it will be in China.  More specifically in the Xi'an High Tech Development Zone. However military grade displays for US/NATO and others not restricted will continue to be made in NY.

    no content as they did not have a computer no run it on. Displayed under a slide like a lab specimen. Finished the display a week before AWE in Boston. Dr. Fan says "good enough". That's good.. Breaking ground in "a few months". World's largest OLED on Silicon factory finished in "two years". (If you say so). These displays companies always nail these timelines don't they (sarc). That gives plenty of time to hire a spokesperson eh?

    To that end, Kopin and partners have made an initial $150 million investment to create a new facility capable of manufacturing a larger and higher resolution version of their VR microdisplay, the company says. This is many years further out into the future, likely after the completion of the new facility, but the company’s roadmap indicates they are aiming for a 1.3-inch 3,072 x 3,072 display followed by a 1.37-inch 4,096 x 4069 display, in due course.

    If you say so

    Apple taught us that...

    Several presenters addressed how to encourage or support adoption of the technology by enterprises. In one session, “AR: Crossing the Chasm,” Dan Cui, CMO of eMagin’s head-mounted display division, said that companies need to focus on end-use models, not on technology.
    “People don’t buy technology; Apple taught us that,” he said. “People—and enterprises—buy because it makes their lives better.” What’s needed for adoption to take off, he continued, is standards and partnerships that can build a complete AR ecosystem, not just individual products.

    Qualcomm, good one Jim

    Jim 1 hour ago

    Tim Leland, vice president of product management at Qualcomm I can’t go into too many details on what we’re doing with Google, but we’re very close partners on different form factors of VR devices. Also, we’re working with some unannounced partners on very influential HMD designs going forward. All of which we believe will ship at the end of the year or early next year, with new products on our side being announced toward the end of the year as well. https://venturebeat.com/2017/06/04/qualcomm-spells-out-the-hurdles-to-extended-reality-glasses/?

    See Ron, even folks who know the industry use Micro oled and oled microdisplay interchangeably

    Oculus definitely won't be releasing any PC VR based headsets until another couple of years.
    Doesn't rule out mobile though. Let's see. Most likely not Oculus imo, I think they will just iterate on the GearVR as they have been doing.
    We know that emagin had designed a concept VR HMD with their micro-oled displays. I think their tech is the dark horse here for VR in the near future. I've been waiting for a product with their displays for a couple of years now and we've heard about an HMD on the way with their tech and designs. This could be it.
    Let's hope this is Magic Leap, though!

    It's getting obvious that the lawyers are not working on a buyout, they are doing what they said they were doing...

    AMD, ODG, Oculus, Google and many of the others are designing eMagin displays into their headsets.,V/R andA/R. The lawyers at Goodwin are working on agreements with manufacturing partners. That was the joke, that was the canary. They intend to supply "All of them".

    The Spark demo was impressive with the radar overlay but has to transit to Torch for hands-free. Can't hold the wheel with your teeth. I get the strategy but glasses have to be next. FLIR just released a new Thermal Imager, same price as the Spark but the electrician needs three arms to make it fully functional. Hopefully Spark's role is to introduce the concept in order to talk about "What's next".

    What the hell is he talking about? He's cussing and slurring his words, talking about the past, Solos is a lifestyle concept, US Cycling won many battles with it, random Kopin thoughts falling out of his cranium...

    Should Elbit be in the mix?


    Who NEEDS to get a next-gen headset out?

    Andrew Sculley
    Here reminded as we’ve talked about many times. Mike, I just interrupt you for a second here. The partners with whom we’re working recognize they are themselves are under very tight time constraints here in terms of when they need to get the next-generation headset out in the marketplace. And that’s why, I think, we’re seeing a very fast pace here in our discussion with them.

    Actually, the company source says Micro-LED and Micro-OLED in the same article, people are confused by the terminology

    AWE 2017: Vote for Wikitude for 'Best Developer Tool'

    Ori "Xi'an" Inbar

    Doug Lanman pioneered lightfield hmds using OLED display while at Nvidia, he now continues that work at Facebook/Oculus


    FBL and Akimed commented on the fact that though Karl Guttag had written that Sony was the “go-to” company for OLED micrdisplays Doug Lanman had switched from using Sony when working on the Nvidia prototype in 2013-2014 to using eMagin for the current Occulus Focal Surface Display prototype and wanted to know eMagin’s reaction.  Andrew made some vague comment along the lines of eMagin’s products being attractive but he had a smile like the cat that just ate the canary.

    All of Them

    Reading opt's report led me to think about the possibility of a buyout. The whole business of how the ASM was conducted, the slides, the lack of participation of key Board members. Dr. Wittels quick bug out, the only slide opt mentioned i.e.the largest companies in the AR/VR Universe of Tiers 1s. (run on sentence, I know)


    "The first slide was plastered with a mass of names of the many companies with which eMagin did business.  I started by asking Andrew what he meant when he used the phrase “Tier 1 company”?  Did he mean a major conglomerate such as Apple, Google, Microsoft, Samsung, Facebook or Amazon or could it mean just a leader in a specific area such as AMD, Intel, or Nvidia in electronics or Oculus, HTC, or ODG in headsets?  His answer was, “All of them”. "


    "All of them".


    When I spoke to Dan Cui at GAOS I asked him about the Spark being adapted to the iPhone. A small deal, a trifle really for Apple knowing all the goofy devices the iPhone has as peripherals. He got very serious and talked about the complications involved in dealing with large companies  like Apple. Almost word for word what JL used in the recent CC. Why would DC and JW be at this Redneck Fest in Central PA? "Tight fisted hunters" indeed. A little voice in my head said "This is not central this is not central, this is a feint." 


    I learned to speak to these guys over the years, different faces at military trade shows mostly, could see whether things with the company were good or bad. It took time to process what I heard and saw. I  looked for subtleties in language but folded that into facial expression, physiognomy, nuance, shrug etc and then in time forged a conclusion. What opt saw: Sculley's cat and it's latest meal. All of them.
