LG’s head-mounted display patent ensures you’re always watching

DNP LG patents headmounted display, acts as visiontriggered secondary viewer

While head-mounted displays are nothing new, LG has patented a novel method for utilizing them that might grab your attention. The patent states that when you’re staring at content on a device like a tablet, the HMD is inactive. But turn your head or the device away and that same content will automatically fade into view right in front of your bespectacled eyes. According to the filing, the noggin-strapped contraption is set to buzz as it switches displays and there’ll be a slight transitional pause when viewing video. While we’re betting virtual reality goggles and Google-branded headgear might prove to be a touch more popular, this is at least a lot cooler than passive 3D clip-ons.

Sony reveals HMZ-T2 head-mounted display pricing, launch date and features in Japan

Sony presented its first head-mounted 3D visor last fall, and announced the HMZ-T2 followup recently at IFA 2012. Now in Japan it has disclosed couple of more details about the modifications it’s made this time around along with a release date and rates. Set up to hit shelves on October 13th, the HMZ-T2 includes all the upgrades we would certainly heard about: lighter total weight, redesigned head band for enhanced convenience, ear buds as an alternative of headphones plus 24p cinema support and a “Clear” panel drive mode for quick moving content. While we still don’t have a United States rate the Japanese damage is 70,000 yen ($ 894), a 10,000 yen ($ 127) boost over last year’s style which cost $ 799 in the United States. Sony Japan has actually also placed together an “Institute for Immersive Enjoyment” Facebook web page, and prepares to reveal it off again at the Tokyo Game Show. Look into our hands-on impressions from IFA right here, we’ll let you understand when there’s even more release information for other areas.

Microsoft patent application gives us hope for head-mounted successor to Virtual Boy

Patent applications are full of hope and broken dreams, as it’s far too easy to let a rampant imagination read beyond the layers of patent-attorney penned boilerplate. In the realm of the realistic, this application from Microsoft concerns a head-mounted display with a narrow-beam laser packing two dilation optics (us neither). If you then variate the diffraction grating between the two eyepieces, you create a three-dimensional virtual reality display. As much as we’d like to prowl the digital touchlines in Fifa Soccer with the Xbox equivalent of the Virtual Boy, it’s more likely that we’ll be stuck prowling our couches for years to come.

Moverio: Epson Announces World’s First See-Through 3D Head-Mounted Display

Picture 1

Epson Japan announced [JP] the so-called Moverio today, a see-through 3D head-mounted display (HMD), which is the first of its kind, according to the company. Think of it as mix between of NEC’s transparent HMD Tele Scouter and Sony’s cool 3D OLED head mounted display HMZ-T1, powered by Android OS.

The Moverio creates the experience of watching 3D (or 2D) pictures on a virtual 80-inch display that’s 5m away – while still being able to see what’s happening around you in the real world. Apart from the display itself, users get a small controller that offers 1GB of internal memory and a microSD card slot.

The Moverio supports MPEG-4/MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 video files, including – side-by-side 3D images on its 0.52-inch displays with 960×540 resolution (it handles AAC and MP3 audio files, too).

Epson also squeezed Android 2.2, Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11b/g/n (direct access to YouTube and a web browser), and a microUSB into the device.

The Moverio’s headset is sized at 205×178×47mm and weighs 240g, while the controller measures 67×107×19mm and weighs 160g.

Epson expects to initially sell 10,000 units when the device hits Japanese stores on November 25 (price: US$ 770).

Tele Scouter: NEC Announces Transparent Head-Mounted Display

nec telescouter featured

NEC announced the so-called Tele Scouter [JP] in Japan, a futuristic, see-through head-mounted display (HMD) for augmented reality applications. The device is based on the AiRScouter, which Brother has been working on for years (and which we covered here, here and here).

The Tele Scouter, which NEC calls a “Wearable Computer”, is sized at 75×40×35mm and weighs 64g. Powered by a Windows Embedded CE 6.0-equipped (portable) terminal, it produces pictures in 800×600 resolution that can be superimposed onto the real world.

The terminal (pictured below) features a ARM 500MHz CPU, IEEE 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth Ver2.0+EDR, a microSD slot, a mic, It’s sized at 140×90×55 and weighs 360g.

NEC says that when worn, the Tele Scouter creates the impression of a 16-inch screen that’s about one meter away from the user’s eyes. The company sees the device used for device assembly, parts picking and selection, and remote operations in factories (battery life: 4 hours).

No word yet on a possible international release, but the Tele Scouter will be priced at US$ 5,200 in Japan. The software goes for an extra US$ 24,000 (release date: December 26).
