ODG stands for Osterhout Design Group. ODG is a German producer of Virtual Reality glasses aimed primarily at enterprise with models for consumers and prosumers. ODG VR headsets are much smaller than normal VR headsets. The R8 headset features a 40 degree field of view and a 720p display for $1000. The R9 headset features a 50 degree field of view and a 1080p display for $1700. The R9 also features a front facing camera for augmented reality. The R9 features a MIPI port for different sensors. Both headsets feature a Snapdragon 835 processor and run on Android 7.0.
Vufine+ is a high definition wearable display in the form of Smart Glass that integrates with your smartphone or to any other device that can output to HDMI. It's using a 720p LCOS microdisplay with up to 90min battery life. They raised $200 thousand on Kickstarter and they have already shipped to their initial 2000+ backers on Kickstarter.
Here's a booth tour at the Qualcomm CES 2017 Booth, showing some of the features that Qualcomm is introducing with their 10nm Snapdragon 835 processor, the first processor to use the "Built on Cortex" technology ARM License. Qualcomm's 10nm Kryo 280 might be built (my speculation) on quad ARM Cortex-A73 and quad ARM Cortex-A53, but customized by Qualcomm with their own design features on top, or throughout, including also Qualcomm's own memory controllers and Qualcomm's new X16 Gigabit LTE Baseband system. Qualcomm X16 Baseband supports up to Gigabit 1000mbit/s download speed and 150Mbps upload speed. It can function over a mix of licensed and unlicensed carrier spectrum. At the Qualcomm booth, this video also shows off some of the other awesome features that Qualcomm is making available with Snapdragon 835, includingn HDR10 4K60p HDMI 2.1a support and potentially HDR ready displays for smartphones to come, Project Tango and similar depth sensing for 6-degrees of freedom VR experiences merging the virtual world with the real world, turning VR into AR. Some other new multimedia features include live real-time stitching of 360 video at 4K 60 frames per second (possibly encoding with H265) which could enable the most advanced 360 video recording, also possibly recording 360 audio. Then combining 3 microphones to design directional audio recording similar to a shotgun microphone, improving the electronic image stabilization functionality (now to version 3.0) and deep neural networks run on the device for integrating advanced computer vision in the smartphone.
This wearable features a piece of glass that allows for a 800x480px display for visual information from the Android v5.1 interface. The wearable comes in B2B and B2C versions costing US$480 and US$639 respectively. Demonstrated is the consumer model that features a capacitive touchpad on the body that allows UI control and recognizes taps. Battery life is rated at 2-4 hours of moderate to heavy usage and over 4 hours of light usage. There's an 8MP camera, 32GB of storage, and a microphone integrated for voice commands.
Epson Movierio Pro is a combination of sensors and cameras to provide a VR-like experience. The Moverio is meant for industrial settings where information about their work could be displayed on the screen in real time. Marketed as a “smart headset”, Moverie Pro resembles Google Glass a lot but is a lot more limited in scope. It uses Android and has a battery life of 4 hours.
The Epson Movierio here is demonstrated through its applications; we see the use of the glasses in instantly producing translations of the words that are spoken to it. The headset is also capable of introducing depth to images like with augmented reality (AR) solutions.
Spardar Shenzhen shows their Wi-Fi direct streaming video-glasses, 40 grams, with 1 hour battery life, can store the video on MicroSD or stream it through your smartphone to the cloud. Mass production is starting now.
Microsoft is trying to launch "the next generation" of Windows as a Holographic world, augmenting the world we already know, with computer graphics, using their system for headmounted holographic lenses, with the Hololens that also has sensors to measure distance of things in front of you, and in a specific area of your field of view it can try to position augmented graphics on top of your environment. Now Microsoft invites hardware partners in Taiwan, in Asia and in the world, to sign up with them to develop mass market Hololens based devices, hopefully to be sold at below the $3000 cost of the Microsoft Hololens development kit.
