Scottsdale, Arizona (PRWEB) November 19, 2014
Lemoptix, the leading developer of laser scanning microprojection technology for mobile, augmented reality and human/machine interaction, today announced that it has developed an ultra-miniature optical engine module for smartglasses. The new optical engine module, which includes light sources, optics and MEMS mirror, has an industry first volume of only 0.85cc. The optical engine module will be demonstrated at CES 2015, January 6-9 in Las Vegas, NV.
“Smartglasses and the wearable displays market as a whole are on the verge of explosive growth” stated Marco Boella, CEO of Lemoptix “Our technology enables a new, immersive user experience for both consumer and professional applications of smartglasses."
Spun off from the highly respected Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in 2008, Lemoptix produces MEMS-based micro-projection technology that enables tiny, low powered projection displays to be embedded in mobile phones, HUDs and other wearables so that content can be displayed on a nearby surface or projected within the device itself, bypassing the typical limitations of physical displays.
“Lemoptix technology enables smartglasses that are nonintrusive and have the look and feel of designer eyewear with little or no loss of peripheral vision when integrated,” said Dr. Nicolas Abelé, CTO of Lemoptix. “What makes our solution stand out is that we can efficiently integrate the optical engine and key electronics components directly into the glasses temple. Our technology is compatible with multiple types of relay optics, including a holographic combiner on which the new optical engine projects a very bright monochrome videos with a high transparency of 70% and higher."
Lemoptix plans to demonstrate its breakthrough design at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES), January 2015.
Lemoptix enables next generation mobile human/machine interaction and augmented reality with its patented MEMS laser scanning micro projection technology and solutions. Applications of Lemoptix technology range from automotive head up displays (HUD) to embedded projectors in smartphones and low power wearable displays (smartglasses) and 3D sensing. Lemoptix has developed multidisciplinary and world-leading expertise in MEMS-mirror modelling, design and fabrication; system and module development, including optical and electronics subsystems.
Early this year, Lemoptix demonstrated the world's smallest optical engine for laser microprojectors with unparalleled speckle reduction, display resolution and luminosity and further showcased a smartglasses prototype that enables direct retina projection via a patented holographic combiner that is provided by a strategic partner.
