#Brelyon #presents #immersive #display #concept #Alaska Green Light Blog Welcome to Alaska Green Light Blog, here is the new story we have for you today:
Shortly after his $15 million fundraiser a few months ago Brelyon showed his vision of what immersive visuals could look like. At CES in Las Vegas, we tried out the fully immersive 8K OLED display, which offers a VR headset-like experience without having to strap anything to your face.
“Brelyon Fusion enables light mixing to scale the field of view in a new way that achieves many times the resolution,” said Barmak Heshmat, CEO and founder of Brelyon, in an interview with Alaska Green Light Blog. “This kind of new innovation to expand the field of light allows us to really think of light as pieces of LEGO blocks that can be computationally built to create a more immersive screen.”
The technology is currently a prototype that won’t be on the market anytime soon – the company estimates it will be in 3-4 years – but it’s deeply impressive nonetheless. The core technology the company calls Ultra Reality and uses precise wavefront engineering to create a huge field of view with a profiled true optical depth. The result is a display that completely surrounds your field of vision. It also adds spatial audio and uses an array of cameras to track your head position and adjust the display accordingly for maximum immersion.
So, um, who is it for?
“We see this as paralleling a headset experience without people having to put any headsets on. Of course, the enterprise market is one of the early adopters. They’re already buying some of our older models,” explains Heshmat. “This is fantastic for gamers, anyone who uses multi-monitor setups or wants to do something with headsets but doesn’t want to be getting up and dancing all the time. It’s a very immersive desktop experience.”
The company points out that the market has spent tens of billions of dollars buying VR headsets, but that it believes immersion shouldn’t be the same as headsets.
“There should be other solutions for people who don’t wear headsets but still want to be immersed. What’s happening in the industry is that as headsets become more mainstream, some of the elements that used to make headsets are now becoming cheaper,” says Heshmat. “In this way we can create so-called “optical displays”. They use a combination of optics and computer techniques to bring you these virtual images without the need for you to wear safety glasses. We are the architect of these new display categories.”
