Avegant Virtual Retinal Display

Avegant has produced this device, a wearable prototype he simply calls the Virtual Retinal Display for now. It could be most closely compared to theĀ Oculus Rift, a full-field wearable display that presents a 3D image to the wearer. However, where the Rift cunningly relies on a single LCD panel and some simple optics to work its magic, Avegant’s product actually projects two discrete images directly onto the retinas of the wearer — as is not-so-subtly implied by the name.


Freaky but awesome, based on military tech but supposed to be much more relaxing for the eyes than lcd tech, it has xga resolution.
