SXSW 2020

Seeing is believing


Increasing pixel count and improving image rendering will never deliver complete visual immersion.

The optical interface holds the key to engaging the eyes and the brain in a way that delivers true visual fidelity.

In this presentation we will show the limitations of the fixed optical set-up in today's headsets and the benefits that can be achieved by introducing variable power optics that stimulate our eyes to respond and focus as they do in the real world.

Additional Supporting Materials


  1. How the eye and brain interpret 3D images
  2. The limitations of fixed optical setups in current head mounted displays
  3. How adjustable optics makes VR and AR experiences more immersive and comfortable for longer use
