Air Mounted Eyepiece

This research presents a Transmissive Mirror Device based Head-Mounted Display. We employ TMD instead of conventional optical elements such as half-mirror, free-from optics, and waveguide. It realizes wide viewing angle because it enabled shorten optical path length between the eyeball and the virtual lens.

Augmented Human 2018にて登壇発表を行いました。SIGGRAPH 2018にてデモンストレーション展示を行いました。Seamless様,PANORA VR様,Mogura VR様に記事を掲載して頂きました。
