Smart glasses are expected to be the fastest-growing sector of the consumer wearables market during the next five years, reaching 11 percent of the overall market by 2021. But for that to happen, manufacturers will need waveguide optics to be compact, efficient and low cost to manufacture.
DigiLens has the answer: The EyeHUD reference design
Digilens Gives Consumers a “Heads-Up”
Based on the same waveguide technology found in some high-end military and commercial jet HUDs, EyeHUD can deliver a richer, brighter and more immersive digital experience for smart glass users.
Using a state-of-the-art digital mastering process, DigiLens photographically imprints diffractive optical structures into the eyeglass to make an AR display possible in an eyeglass form factor.
The waveguide manufacturing process is the result of years of R&D, revolutionizing classical holographic recording techniques into a photocopy like process. Manufacturers are now able to produce thin, high quality smart glass lenses faster and more affordably than ever before.
Partners Climbing Aboard
EyeHUD is in early stages of development, but major consumer electronics companies, including Sony, are evaluating it for future products. DigiLens is currently sampling to multiple consumer corporations and manufacturers to share everybody’s vision of lightweight wearable displays in our ever-connected world.
Founded in 2005 as Switchable Bragg Grating (SBG) Labs, the name of our technology, DigiLens has been pioneering AR and VR displays for over 15 years.
