Augmented Reality is more than Virtual Reality


Today's augmented reality projects are still most often just about software. The necessary display glasses are taken as is. But this has been the same for the last decade and more, so we cannot really expect any progress this way.

Eye tracker

Mask display

Position cameras

Dynamic image generator

Dynamic fit and focus adaptation

No straps, no screws, no belts, no clamps !
