Lumus OE-31 Turns You Into a Cyborg

Display technology vendor Lumus showed off its newest optical engine, the OE-31. Taking advantage of the very latest tech., the OE-31 is a compact transparent HUD that you can stick into motorcycle helmets, prescription glasses, sunglasses, fashion eye-wear to even skiing (and we'd imagine diving) glasses. The optical engine is a little more than just a small display, it is backed by a small sensor that sees things from your perspective (in a mechanical sense), and overlays information accordingly (such as a GPS overlay for bike helmets, or finding your way around The Pentagon), in other words, it's an augmented reality engine that's a lot more compact.

The new sensor design allows for a 19-degree field of view and a full-color, 640x360 picture display, which Lumus believes will be sufficient for reading a lot of text, its viewing experience should be comparable to watching a 40-inch screen from 10 feet away.

This is a consumer level application of devices already in use by the military.

Nice to see stuff like this is getting less bulky, when it can be incorporated into a normal eyeglass frames and lenses it will be a great day indeed.

you mean like this??




But i agree - something like this would be awesome if they could intergrate it with an android phone via bluetooth so you can walk around with your own HUD while wearing it.

First we see people sitting down at the park benches talking to bricks (mobile phones). Then, we see people talking to themselves (bluetooth headset). Now, we see people looking at and touching pads.

Soon we see people just sit there....staring into nothingness.
