‘HOLOSCOPE’ Headset Claims to Solve AR Display Hurdle with True Holography

Road to VR

RealView claims to be using real holography to solve a major problem inherent to AR and VR headsets of today, the vergence-accommodation conflict. According to the Wikipedia entry for computer-generated holography , one of the simpler algorithms to generate the required interference patterns, Fourier transform, is only able to create holograms of 2D images. Details remain to be seen, but any advancements to computer-generated holography would be highly welcome.

Akonia Uses Holography To Create Transparent Augmented Reality Display

UploadVR Between Realities podcast

The company now plans to use holography to make inexpensive transparent displays for augmented reality smartglasses. We’ve used lenses for hundreds of years, and we hope holography will give us a new way to manipulate light.”. Akonia is not unique in its attempt to use holography in this manner. Because holography has one huge benefit: It can manipulate light while being perfectly invisible, which is exactly what is needed in an eyepiece. AR hardware akonia holograph

In virtual reality, the more realistic the digital world, the greater the demand for fidelity. The greater demand for fidelity, the greater the demand for bandwidth. Nothing is more demanding than cinematic realism. We expect photo real worlds to have absolutely perfect fidelity.
