AiRScouter Retinal Imaging Display

AiRScouter Retinal Imaging Display

Brother, the company famous for it’s printers has been developing a wearable retinal imaging display since 2005 and will be releasing a consumer version of the display by the end of the 2010 fiscal year (March 2011).  They have unveiled a number of prototypes, and will be showing a brand new prototype at “Brother World JAPAN 2010″ on September 15th of this year.

The device will be called the AiRScouter and will work by focusing light, of an intensity harmless to the eye, onto the retina.   It will then move the light at high speed to create an after image.  Images projected onto the retina appear as if they float mid-air in front of the user.  The AiRScouter will initially have a resolution of 800 x 600.  Brother plans on offering an attachable camera for possible augmented reality applications.

What makes this display so much different from any other wearable display (or head mounted display) is that there is no physical screen, it actually creates a virtual screen that is transparent, allowing you to use this in your daily life without obstructing your vision.  If you are having trouble visualizing this, picture what the terminator sees in the movie of the same name.

There is no word on pricing at this point, so let’s hope that it will actually be affordable.

  • I have really learned result-oriented things through your web site. One other thing I would like to say is the fact newer computer system operating systems have a tendency to allow extra memory to use, but they as well demand more ram simply to perform. If a person’s computer is unable to handle additional memory and also the newest application requires that memory increase, it may be the time to buy a new PC. Thanks
