This article is part 3 on EyeWay Vision’s (EyeWay) foveated laser scanning display and follows up on Part 1 that discussed the technology, and Part 2 that showed through-the-optics images. It will go through my thoughts on why I find EyeWay’s technology so interesting and what I see as the challenges.
As I discussed in Part 1, foveated displays is being studied by both some of the largest companies (ala, Apple and Facebook) and startups. To many, foveated displays support the ultimate goals of AR with major theoretical advantages.
This blog is followed worldwide, and I had two readers point me to a couple of very relevant articles. Before I get into my analysis, I want to point these articles out and provide links for those who want to go into more detail.
Kenneth Holmqvist, a professor at Lund University in Sweden, alerted me to a study he helped develop with a paper and Video presentation about EyeWay’s Eye Tracking development on studying eye tracking using the earlier version of EyeWay Vision’s eye-tracking technology. This study gives some clues as to how EyeWay’s tracking is more accurate than prior methods.
