Part 1 of EyeWay Vision: Foveated Laser Scanning Display gave an overview of EyeWay’s technology. As I will discuss more in the next article (Part 3), EyeWay is one of the most technically interesting developments I have seen in Augmented Reality. While they are far from being done, they are working on multiple important issues.
In this part, I want to share some high-resolution photographs of EyeWay’s display. As discussed in Part 1, these photographs were provided by EyeWay directly out of the camera. I did a little cropping and converted them from Sony Camera RAW to JPEGs to make them easy to view. In addition to viewing the display with my own eyes, I took some similar pictures. Due to some mechanical interference from the prototype, the pictures from EyeWay came out a little better, so I am using them here.
In these camera pictures, you will see things you won’t see when viewing the display live. EyeWay is working on a foveal display where the high-resolution projected image will track the eye. As we will see in these pictures, the high-resolution foveal projected image behaves differently from the peripheral image.
