Interesting User Concept for a New Type of 3D-capable HMD Device

February 22nd, 2011 · 7 Comments · Other S3D Tech

Head mounted displays are not a new concept, and although their boom was probably back at the end of the last century and the beginning of this one, they never became mainstream and kind of disappeared lately from the market. But users’ interest hasn’t disappeared in them at all and during CES 2011 last month Sony has rekindled this interest by showing a new prototype of a Head Mounted Display that may or may not become available at some point as a commercial product. With Sony’s device however only the specs were upgraded from previously available similar products, but apparently there are also people working on new concepts that are very promising and that try to implement completely new ideas that can help overcome some of the limitations of the HMDs. The video above shows a few concepts for a future possible HMD device, 3D capable as well, developed by Deisler De Leon Vargas that shows a lot of promise, and he has even patented some of his ideas. The problem however is that he does not yet have the resources to build a prototype of the device himself, but maybe his idea will be picked up and further developed. Take a look at the video above to see what he is proposing as a new generation of an HDM device…

    Is it just me or does it seem wrong to use other product commericals in a serious patent proposal without crediting the companies who made them in either the video or video info?

    As for the idea. Well. . . meh. I don’t see the point in the phone idea because no one would ever see your face if you went everywhere with it on.

    Exactly my same thoughts Peter… extremely unprofessional and don’t think it’s even legit what he did.

    As for the idea… same here… meh.

    If others company doesn’t offers bigger FOV, with their small LCD+lens, they clearly miss a market.
    But in this idea, the weight of this big screen is really a big issue
    too heavy, with actual technology, if you want to use more than 2 hours…

    Interesting video, but the whole patent thing is bunk. I’ve been reading about stuff like this since the early 90’s and even experimented with it myself years ago. A patent like that would never hold up in court due to prior art. I mean, he even uses other companies advertisements in his video! How can he even try to claim its his idea?!?!?!

    How is it possible to have a sharp image and one image per eye with one screen and one lens. The screen is too close to the observer.
    The hollow mirror is alreay used in professional flight simulators!!

    lol patent system is a shiat and should be destroyed. guys like this prove it patenting common sense and already existing concepts that in the end get deleted either by court, or by morally legit baseball play with their heads.
