If you have always wanted a visual data stream similar to the one used by The Terminator in the movies. You will be pleased to know that a team of researches have created the world first bidirectional eye-tracking OLED microdisplay which tracks your eyes movements and can be used for gaze triggered augmented-reality (AR) aplications.
The device will be on show at SID 2011 (May 17 – 19, 2011 in Los Angeles) is in the form of a monocle and overlays digital information on top of the reflected light that usually hits your eyeballs.
The chips contain both an active OLED matrix and therein integrated photodetectors. The combination of both matrixes in one chip is an essential possibility for system integrators to design smaller, lightweight and portable systems with both functionalities.
The new Borg like device is still in its prototype development stage at the moment but already enables the user to overlay the view of the real world with virtual contents and navigate to new contents triggered only by their gaze without the use of any hands.Filed Under: Design News, Technology News
