2018 SID/DSCC Display Week Conference May 21st - May 24th, 2018 LA Convention Center
Kari Pulli CTO Meta
Abstract: Immersive Optical-See-Through Augmented Reality Augmented Reality has gained steam in the last 20 years, and is finally becoming real, powered by progress in enabling technologies such as graphics, computer vision, sensors, and displays. At Meta, we're producing an immersive optical-see-through AR headset, as well as the full software stack. We’ll discuss the differences between optical vs. video see-through displays, immersion, Meta 2 optics, and the key computer vision enablers for AR. We'll conclude with discussing some of the key applications that are enabled by wearable and immersive Augmented Reality.
