Israel’s LumusThe developer of reflective waveguide Technology for Augmented Reality (AR(Eyewear) has unveiled its second-generation technology, which will allow for the advancement of smaller and lighter AR glasses.
It Lumus Z-Lens 2D waveguide Architektur is built on 2D Maximus, which allows for the creation of smaller, lighter AR High-resolution, outdoor-compatible eyeglasses and Integration of prescription glasses seamlessly. The AR Modules as high as 50% can be purchased smaller.
It new The public will see the technology being used. for The first time I was at CES 2023 this week, Las Vegas’s biggest tech trade fair. Lumus Hopes that the technology will bring the AR The bridge to all the amazing possibilities in the metaverse
“In order for AR glasses to penetrate the consumer market in a meaningful way, they need to be impressive both functionally and aesthetically. With Z-Lens, we’re aligning form and function, eliminating barriers-of-entry for the industry and paving the way for widespread consumer adoption,” Lumus Ari Grobman is the CEO of the company, according to a statement “Our introduction of Maximus 2D reflective waveguide technology two years ago was just the beginning. Z-Lens, with all of its improvements unlocks the future of augmented reality that consumers are eagerly waiting for.”
Big functionality, small size
Lumus’ new Z-Lens waveguide Architecture retains its outstanding image quality and Maximus’ predecessor has high luminance efficiency, but the new Maximus optical engine is half as efficient. smaller. The new Architecture also offers the possibility of for More flexibility for glasses Manufacturers can place the aperture at different positions.
It allows you to for Much smaller AR Optics for Natural looking glasses Reduce your weight and bulk associated with many of today’s solutions.
Z-Lens’ newLightweight optical engine with 2K x2K resolution and Full, vivid color for outstanding image quality Consumers will enjoy enhanced reality at daylight level with a pair glasses that – from the outside – are virtually indistinguishable from a non-AR pair.
Lumus’ Z-Lens architecture also allows for Laser bonding to optical elements for Prescription glassesLicenses can be obtained for any of the following: and This feature is used by partners in manufacturing. This allows customers to personalize their products. AR Eyeglasses can enhance the visual quality of your eyes by eliminating bulky and heavy inserts. They can also be worn as ordinary eyewear.
Additional key benefits: smaller Micro-projectors, large fields of view and This is a clear, undistorted view of the world. Battery efficiency can even be 10 times higher than the average battery. waveguide On the market and Forward light leakage is not significant (forward projection).
“AR experts call the face a ‘sacred space’ – and it’s quite true. Natural-looking glasses with augmented reality functionality will unlock the consumer market and propel the industry forward,” Grobman stated. “Manufacturers will need to create aesthetically-appealing glasses before mass adoption can ever become a reality, and Z-Lens allows them to do exactly this.”
It new Z-Lens’ bonding feature also permits for dynamic focal lens integration that helps solve vergence-accommodation conflict (VAC), a visual phenomenon that occurs when the brain receives mismatching cues between vergence and Accommodation for the eye.
Critical to a positive user-experience, Z-Lens also eliminates ambient light artifacts on the lenses – a common effect in AR glasses When the displays are off, small light glares can be seen hitting the optical display components. Z-Lens Architecture, just like Maximus the original Maximus architecture, prioritizes privacy and eliminates light leakage. This means that third parties cannot see the contents of the Z-Lens architecture. AR The wearer watches.
Two of these are available: AR glassesLenses that use Z-Lens reflective wavesguides will work as the ‘screen’ On which content is displayed. Content originating from one of many micro-display technology including LCoS, microLED or laser-based micro-projectors.
All Lumus Reflective waveguides include a number of features. ‘cascading’ Mirrors with partially reflective lenses that direct the signal through the waveguide into the viewer’s eye. The image is enlarged by these transflective partial mirrors. “X” and “Y” Vertically expanding your image with axes and horizontally. The 2D expansion architecture allows for a wide field of vision while keeping a small projector hidden within the temples of the eyeglass frames.
First prototypes Lumus Z-Lens features a 50-degree field-of-view, although the company is working on a product plan that will reach more than 80 degrees. Z-Lens is compatible with finished products and can appear almost identical to regular eyeglasses.
The Future of AR
Grobman says Lumus’ Z-Lens architecture will play an outsized role in advancing the AR eyeglass market – a category that is at the threshold of rapid growth.
“The metaverse is increasingly becoming a reality, and AR glasses will be essential to participate in it,” He said. “AR glasses are poised to transform our society. They feature better ergonomics than smartphones, novel interaction opportunities with various environments and businesses, and a much more seamless experience than handheld devices. The future, quite literally, is looking up.”
Lumus holds more than 430 patents, with more than 540 additional patents pending, placing it among the world’s top patent holders for AR optics.
Lumus Co-developed manufacturing methods with Quanta Computer Inc., its top supply chain partner. and To achieve Scalability, SCHOTT for Mass manufacturing. The company’s tech is at the core of several existing AR products including Thales’ Scorpion full-color head mounted display, Augmedics xVision system for guiding surgeons, Lenovo’s ThinkReality A6 released in 2019 as well as Thirdeye’s X2 MR Glasses.
