NVIDIA Virtual Reality Eyeglasses 3D Holographic Images
Forget bulky headsets, the new NVIDIA virtual reality eyeglasses look no different than what you’d use to read a book, thanks to a wearable display that measures just 2.5mm thick. For comparison, this 2.5mm display is less than half the size of the ones found in VR headsets. It was developed by researchers from NVIDIA and Stanford in a bid pack 3D holographic images into a wearable display.

This feat was accomplished by approaching display quality and display size as a computational problem, while co-designing the optics with an AI-powered algorithm. Unlike other VR displays today that require distance between a magnifying eyepiece and a display panel to create a hologram, these eyeglasses utilize a spatial light modulator, or a tool capable of creating holograms right in front of the user’s eyes, without requiring this gap. We can safely say that it’s definitely more compact than the Microsoft Hololens headsets that the US Army uses.
