The Innovega Unveils Its New Eyewear System At CES 2013
The quality of digital media accessible by mobile devices is now exceeding the performance of conventional mobile displays. The developer of compact wearable HUD displays, Innovega Inc., addresses this issue in a prototype of its transparent mega-pixel eyewear at CES 2013. The Innovega eyewear system comprises two elements: micro-projectors or flat-panels that are integrated into eyewear and provide a media gateway, and novel iOptik contact lenses that deliver a crisp view of both near-eye rich media and of the environment. The lenses can be worn in the usual manner with or without the Innovega eyewear; in case the eyewear is worn, any accessible media is instantly available and is overlaid onto or blended with the environment. Innovega’s mobile eyewear accessory will deliver the equivalent of a 240 inch, HD, 3D experience. The company’s designers believe that in future its new personal display interface will be extensively used in immersive 3D gaming and video, in emerging high-performance AR, which requires a see-through and panoramic wearable display interface.
* Augmented reality (AR) is a live, direct or indirect, view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data
