Take that Oculus... eMagin will be shipping "something" too in small quantities in 2015! We anticipate
Headsets (“HMDs”) Our Z800 3DVisors™ headset was discontinued in 2014 and will be replaced with our Immersive Head Mounted Display (IHMD), which we anticipate will be available in small quantities in 2015.

Even in the impressive Crescent Bay prototype, you’ve only got a 90-degree field of vision, while your eyes are normally capturing 280 degrees. To remove this “binocular” effect (and any visible pixels in your vision), you’d need better lenses and a display with a resolution higher than even Apple’s new Retina 5K iMac, which starts at $2,499. It’s not hard to imagine Oculus getting closer to that ideal spec over the next several years, but it’ll happen with gradual iteration and improvement (and will require early adopters to keep buying high-end rigs for development and gaming).

So, eMagin and their iHMD. I hope their testing went beyond a focus group comprised of students from nearby Bellevue College. I hope they put people in Roller Coasters and Formula 1 Cars. In describing the reactions of the focus group participants to the four HMDs he mentioned Field of View, Resolution, Size and Weight. He did not say anything about adverse reactions or the subjects filling out a Simulator Sickness Survey. But, if it's true that users did not experience the discomforts that are now in the process of ruining Virtual Reality's reputation then it's not too much to say that Jerry Carollo design could save a nascent industry. To be fair Steam/HTC maintains that their HMD doesn't cause Simulator Sickness but I'm skeptical, the isolation is as complete as the earlier Dive Mask HMDs save some holes in the side of the eyebox that allow for some ventilation and light to the periphery. The problem of size and weight remain. All the admissions that the Oculus Design is flawed have now become industry wide. Palmer Luckey has no clothes. Recent hires indicate that the companies that made large investments in VR, Facebook, Google know they need a new approach. That points to exactly what Sculley maintained about the problems of current VR Headsets and what Mike Capps says here, there will be no advance until somebody gets the hardware right.

eMagin management said it out loud in Public "WE ARE BROADLY DEMOING OUR IMMERSIVE HEAD MOUNTED DISPLAY " but still nobody heard it. Reminds of that thing "If a tree falls in the forest and nobody is around will it appear on somebody's radar?" apparently not

Early on Kopin only alluded to an NDA with a large prestigious company, then a couple of years ago they said publicly thay had an NDA with Google...
|Murky waters, blindfolded|
now they talk specifics about Google related revenue and namedrop whenever given the opportunity, based on that I'll maintain that there is no Google Stealth development going on with Kopin. No NDA in force. On the other hand not a whisper from eMagin as to that company save the odd circumstance that their VP for Special Projects is working concurrently with Google and eMagin as evidenced by the Employees Linkedin Profile. Or maybe the silence is just driving me bonkers. Could be either one. This guy though believes that the 10% revenue with Google means they will be using Kopin LCDs in Glass II. Not that familiar with the boundaries of what an NDA allows but it seems to me it's like saying "Wow, do I have a big secret, I was sworn to silence but here it is." Doesn't make sense. Then I don't know if Jerry Carollo's Linkedin Profile violates such an agreement or not if one exists. When Sculley said this is a tough business to understand he was not kidding.

Doug Lanman's Abstract for a Near-Eye Lightfield HMD, Doug was at NVIDIA at the time of Publication Now he is at Oculus/Facebook
Figure 1: Enabling thin, lightweight near-eye displays using light field displays. (Left) Our binocular near-eye display prototype is shown, comprising a pair of OLED panels covered with microlens arrays. This design enables a thin head-mounted display, since the black box containing driver electronics could be waist-mounted with longer OLED ribbon cables. (Right) Due to the limited range of human accommodation, a severely defocused image is perceived when a bare microdisplay is held close to the eye. Conventional near-eye displays require bulky magnifying optics to facilitate accommodation. We propose near-eye light field displays as thin, lightweight alternatives, achieving comfortable viewing by synthesizing a light field for a virtual scene located within the accommodation range (here implemented by viewing a microdisplay, depicting interlaced perspectives, through a microlens array)

No Forktrucks this time but "Warehouse" mention, glasses for picking presumably, let's see it
Olivier Prache's trip to Lake Placid with Google Glass battery drained in two hours
we found out the eMagin Z800 was "ahead of it's time" ok so now were caught up?
Michael Schwandt "consultant" to eMagin was one of the participants in the focus group that eMagin undertook in cooperation with a "Mystery" Company, Sculley, "I can't mention who". Mr. Scwandt was an undergrad at Bellevue College, let's see Bellevue, Bellevue, anybody think of a gaming company in that part of the world?
Oculus Rift was obviously Company #1, Wide FOV, bad resolution, screen door effect, BIG, has to be Oculus. I'll guess that the one that had both bad res and bad FOV was the Zeiss Cinemizer as Mr. Energy Drink keeps one on his desk. #3, no idea maybe a Sony HMZ T2
The HMD is going to look a lot more like this eMagin/TATRC Prototype fro Army Telemedicine
then this piece of grunt
what was new this time was Sculley floating the possibilities that other companies are interested in the displays themselves for their own HMDs apart from the housing electronics etc
what was with that random Margaret Kohin mention, well and good but wouldn't a nod to the person she was replacing make sense? Like he didn't want to mention Jerry Carollo, it sort of hung in the air, operating under the presumption that JCs Linkedin profile is accurate and he is working jointly for eMagin and Google, don't believe any of that political bullshit the other board is floating about "bad blood" between them, nonsense
they are aware that of the problems with the dive mask displays and there is no rush as adoption is slow, even Steam's entry is a dive mask with some holes on the side for ventilation, don't think that's the final product from them
Microdisplays will be the winners for these VR Headsets
Fraunhofer has apparently given up on direct patterning, they seem to be concentrating on OLED lighting
Broad based demos of the iHMD are weeks away with some tweaking of color gamut and head-tracking that is conformable to games developed for the infamous piece of shit like Die in a Plane Crash and Virtual Guillotine, just kidding
Based on ema_lurker research I think the most notable companies they will be demoing the hmd for are Google, Oculus, Qualcomm, Microsoft, Apple, Valve (companies we have heard of)
I do not think Morpheus could have been one of the 4 at eMagin's HMD Focus Group, unlike iHMD Sony's leaves (shoebox) room for the user to wear glasses, if you can't see things that close to you maybe you need eSight and not an HMD..Project Morpheus: Eyes-on PS4’s New VR Prototype
Now That's a Dive Mask HMD...Let's hope these ridiculous devices don't kill VR (or any swimmers) before eMagin can get you inside the game
