I wonder how profitable the Ford GT super car is ?
Or is the point to bring the tech to their mass produced vehicles ?
When the news cones that SNUP II has been ordered , you'd better have your position in place .
Oh wow a patent !
How about some more "working withs" while your at it .
Here's a real product - the NVIS nVisor ST-50 with EMAN displays inside being used to design the new Ford GT super car .
Notice in the video it appears the man is using the device for both AR & VR .
From the NVIS nVisor ST50 description :
"...immersive modes for professional augmented and virtual reality applications ."
Embedded link labeled "NVIS headset " takes you to NVIS nVisor ST50 which uses EMAN displays .
You guys talk out of both sides of your mouth .
First they only sell to military , now they're garbage .
How many displays is HDI selling ?
I guess EMAN will sell a bunch when the partnerships start getting inked .
Sorry but AITT is based off SA Photonics LARS which uses EMAN displays .
Better luck next time Sal .
So AR can be see through or not .
The not kind would be like AR on a cell phone or tablet and also on our IHMD I believe .
On second thought it may be the guy looking through the binocular device that is "optical see through" - AR .
"The glasses, or "optical see-through" components, were recently completed"
This corresponds with completion of the IHMD .
The article says "optical see through" but the photo of the guy on the machine gun doesn't look see through . Are they using the "see through " term loosely . Is the IHMD being used as an AR device by using a camera to take in the real environment that the computer then overlays information on & presents to the wearer . Can our IHMD then be used both a VR and AR device ?
Thanks for the find Ace .
Marines were able to turn a lush golf course into a hostile battleground complete with tanks, mortar fire and smoke at a demonstration on May 21 using an augmented reality training system from the Office of Naval Research (ONR).
The glasses, or "optical see-through" components, were recently completed, and this was the first time they were hooked up to the AITT system.
"The glasses are leading-edge and are really pushing the technology of optical see-throughs forward," Squire said. "But the glasses are just one component of the system. It's the AITT system itself that's revolutionary because it enables warfighters to turn any environment into a training ground."
The glasses are more technologically advanced than the much-discussed Google glass—a head-mounted display that shows information in a smartphone-like format. Created through a Small Business Technology Transfer program, they have a much larger field of view than similar products that are commercially available. Marine Corps Maj. Le Nolan, an action officer for the Human Performance Training and Education (HPT&E) thrust area in ONR's Expeditionary Maneuver Warfare and Combating Terrorism Department, described them as being like "a portable high definition PC [personal computer] screen in front of your eyes that can integrate and render complex information in a manner that does not exist for the typical heads-up displays Marines use today."
