‘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. This new headset is similar to Magic Leap‘s AR efforts in two big ways: one, it aims to address the issue of vergence-accommodation conflict inherent in current VR headsets such as Oculus Rift or Vive, and AR headsets such as Microsoft’s HoloLens; and two, we know almost no details about it. Holo-this, holo-that.

The Magic Leap One and Nreal glasses optimize for aesthetics by using a separate “puck” computer (including battery), strapped to your waist. Magic Leap and Microsoft also can’t leverage the many established services built into Apple and Google’s platforms. A major focus from Magic Leap and Microsoft has been building an SDK and enticing developers. Akonia was working on novel optics for AR based on holography.

Until recently, the Spatial holographic experience required a multi-thousand-dollar Microsoft or Magic Leap AR headset, but Spatial wisely widened its cross-platform support and temporarily dropped its pricing to bring more users to the table. I’m not often at a loss for words, but as I re-entered the real world after my second holographic media briefing this month, I realized that I was struggling to speak or type.

Avegant Claims Newly Announced Display Tech is “a new method to create light fields”

Road to VR

From a feature standpoint, this is similar to reports of the unique display that Magic Leap has developed but not yet shown publicly. Avegant’s announcement video of this new tech (heading this article) appears to invoke Magic Leap with solar system imagery which looks very familiar to what Magic Leap has teased previously.

Here is an update on my quest to stay on top of all things “holo:” HoloLamp and RealView “Live Holography.” This new and apparently yet-unnamed thing is similar to Magic Leap ‘s AR efforts in two big ways: one, it aims to address the issue of vergence-accommodation conflict inherent in current VR headsets such as Oculus Rift or Vive, or AR headsets such as Microsoft’s HoloLens; and two, we know almost no details about it.
