Researchers find way to shrink a 3D holographic VR headset down to normal glasses size using pancake lenses and a waveguide

Researchers from Stanford University and Nvidia have teamed up to help develop VR glasses that look a lot more like regular spectacles. Okay, they are rather silly looking due to the ribbons extended from either eye, but they’re much, much flatter and compact than your usual goggle-like virtual reality headsets today. “A major barrier to Read more about Researchers find way to shrink a 3D holographic VR headset down to normal glasses size using pancake lenses and a waveguide[…]

“Parallel Reality” Display Shows Different Info to Different People at Same Time

Imagine if you, me and a dozen other people were standing in a room staring at the same screen—but the screen showed something different to each of us, simultaneously. A California-based tech company called Misapplied Sciences has made this possible. They’ve developed a “parallel reality” display “enabled by a new pixel that has unprecedented capabilities,” Read more about “Parallel Reality” Display Shows Different Info to Different People at Same Time[…]

Transparent Display Hacked to Look Like Shower Door

Changing touchscreen friction and rendering of virtual shapes through change in surface temperature

In this work, we show a large modulation of finger friction by locally changing surface temperature. Experiments showed that finger friction can be increased by ~50% with a surface temperature increase from 23° to 42°C, which was attributed to the temperature dependence of the viscoelasticity and the moisture level of human skin. Rendering virtual features, Read more about Changing touchscreen friction and rendering of virtual shapes through change in surface temperature[…]
