3D display improves viewing comfort in VR headsets

3D display improves viewing comfort in VR headsets
There is a great deal of excitement around VR headsets that display a computer-simulated world and AR glasses that overlay computer-generated elements with the real world. Although AR and VR devices are starting to hit the market, they remain mostly a novelty because eye fatigue makes them uncomfortable to use for extended periods. A new type of 3D display could solve this long-standing problem by greatly improving the viewing comfort of these wearable devices.

What is the future of VR & AR for businesses?

What is the future of VR & AR for businesses?
At London’s TechXLR8 trade show which took place 13th to 15th June 2017, David MacQueen, Executive Director, Apps and Media, Strategy Analytics, gave a talk entitled ‘Harnessing VR & AR enterprise opportunities’. Strategy Analytics predicts that half a billion VR headsets will be on the market by 2022, and that this sector will be dominated by low cost smartphone VR. On the other hand, while niche in terms of volume, many enterprises use PC-based VR and this accounts for 40% of total VR & AR revenue.
