Tomas is the CEO and co-founder of CREAL, a Swiss technology startup that developed and commercialize a display for a more natural and immersive visual experience in Augmented Reality. He turned entrepreneur after 15 years of a research career, including at CERN and EPFL, to solve one of the key roadblocks on the way to the next big thing - the Augmented Reality.
The Future of AR is Within Arm's Reach
The state-of-the-art Augmented Reality (AR) 3D visualization systems fail to deliver a satisfying visual experience due to missing or conflicting depth cues. The absence of natural focal depth in digital 3D imagery causes the so-called vergence-accommodation conflict, focal rivalry, and possibly damage the eye-sight, especially during prolonged viewing of virtual objects within the arm’s reach. It remains one of the most challenging and market-blocking problems in the AR arena today. This talk introduces CREAL’s unique near-to-eye light-field projection system that provides high-resolution 3D imagery with fully natural monocular depth cues without any eye-tracking
