The Lumus OE-31 Wearable Display (video)


It's safe to say that most of us have seen wearable displays in many sic-fi movies (the rest of you need to get out more, just sayin').... Lumus has recently introduced the Lumus OE-31, a fully-functional wearable display prototype that will allow us to have Terminator vision, Yeah! 
(see video demo below)

...the wearable screen consists of a tiny projector – which would be integrated into the hinge section of your glasses – and a transparent plastic slice through which the picture shines. Built into the plastic is a series of lenses that reflect sections of the projection into the user’s eye. The end result is a virtual display that floats on top of a view of the world around you, allowing you to see both simultaneously, and seemingly getting bigger the further into the distance you gaze. The OE-31 runs at nHD resolution (640 x 360) but, Lumus tells us, more important than the number of pixels is how cleanly they line up, and the blend of ambient light and projected light, without which the display would be uncomfortable in extended use.
