Theme: Virtual Reality and Augmented Vision

Virtual Reality and Augmented Vision

This theme program provides a gateway to learning about unique and long-standing optical and computational challenges for displays. Today’s devices are only at the beginning of a long journey; numerous future optical innovations could help us reach perceptually realistic images with devices that ultimately appear to be ordinary eyeglasses.

Learn about the newest VR/AV technologies, lessons learned in building practical systems and what specific applications appear to be the most promising.
