Title:


    Membrane AR: Varifocal, Wide-Field-of-View Augmented Reality Display from Deformable Membranes

Presenter(s):


Entry Number: 15


Description:


    Accommodative depth cues, a wide field of view, and ever-higher resolutions present major design challenges for near-eye displays. Optimizing a design to overcome one of them typically leads to a trade-o. in the others. We tackle this problem by introducing an all-in-one solution – a novel display for augmented reality. The key components of our solution are two see-through, varifocal deformable membrane mirrors reflecting a display. They are controlled by airtight cavities and change the effective focal power to present a virtual image at a target depth plane. The benefits of the membranes include a wide field of view and fast depth switching.
