Nvidia will demonstrate a prototype of light field-VR goggles




Nvidia has the Virtual Reality LA trade show displayed a prototype of his VR goggles, which works with light field technology. The company is working with Stanford University on the glasses, which enables users to focus on any point on the screen.

There is not much new information available about the glasses, but a number of photographs that the site TweakTown in his possession has been given. Nvidia is working since last year with Stanford University on the project, which is called “Light Field StereoScope. The VR goggles must enable users to focus naturally on objects, depending on distance. The glasses uses two layers of LCD’s in order to create a depth effect, which is combined with the stereoscopic technique to display individual images in each eye a different angle. This would have the effect that the images are not flat, so that the load on the eyes decreases and dizziness is reduced.

The depth effect is achieved by each eye to show a combination of 25 images and the effect would be that each eye a sort of hologram will be served, though details about the technology so still quite scarce. In a virtual reality environment, the effect can be achieved by rendering an entire scene with the aid of the light-field technique. Previously gave Nvidia researcher Douglas Lanman that “virtually every game engine ‘with fifty lines of code can be converted to using raytracing support light field rendering. Lanman has been doing more research into near-eye displays light field. The vr glasses from Nvidia should appear on the market in 2018.
