Is Nvidia Entering the HMD Market?

By July 22, 2013March 24th, 2020News

Just when you thought there was only one big player in the modern HMD space, it’s becoming clear that we are indeed moving towards a diversified market.  Nvidia has revealed details of a new HMD prototype they are developing that is based on a light field display.  In addition to being a lot more compact than what has been previously marketed, sharp images are depicted from out-of-focus elements by synthesizing light fields corresponding to virtual objects within a viewer’s natural accommodation range.

Think of it as a series of adjustments that compensate according to what is being digitally looked at so you always have a crisp image in 3D form without the discomfort of accommodation-convergence conflict (i.e. a conflict between your eyes, the physical screen, and the depth your eyes are perceiving).  The above video and attached paper give a clearer description.
