Take Your Head Out of That Box: Sunglasses-Like Virtual Reality Eyewear Using Light Field Displays
Abstract:
We will describe a new light-field-based approach to near-eye display that allows for dramatically thinner and lighter head-mounted display capable of depicting accurate accommodation, convergence, and binocular-disparity depth cues. Such near-eye light field displays depict sharp images from out-of-focus display elements by synthesizing light fields that correspond to virtual scenes located within the viewer's natural accommodation range. Building on related integral imaging displays and microlens-based light-field cameras, we optimize performance in the context of near-eye viewing. Near-eye light field displays support continuous accommodation of the eye throughout a finite depth of field; as a result, binocular configurations provide a means to address the accommodation convergence conflict that occurs with existing stereoscopic displays. We have built film-based static image prototypes, a binocular OLED-based prototype head-mounted display, and a GPU-accelerated stereoscopic light-field renderer.
