Project description
Current virtual or augmented reality headsets are not widely accepted, because they cause discomfort, eye-strain and physical pain to the majority of users. Why? Human eye needs to change focus between objects in different distances and perceives depth that way. This is impossible in devices based on flat screens. The mismatch between binocular depth and focus causes eye-strain, pain, and nausea. CREAL develops and commercializes near-eye light-field display technology for virtual and augmented reality headsets and smart glasses. The light-field display projects genuinely three-dimensional hologram-like images with near-retinal resolution. Each eye can change focus naturally between virtual objects in the image, just like it would in the real world. CREAL currently offers VR and AR development kits of the light-field display and associated rendering software chain to selected clients to initiate pilot and integration projects.
