Facebook displays a prototype of his glasses-holographic “to a virtual reality as thin and light”

In the sector virtual reality we are accustomed to seeing solutions normally large, such as helmets or goggles bulky. is Facebook is well known to this type of devices, as it is in the market with their different versions of Oculus. It seems, however, that the company Mark Zuckerberg also is making his first steps in the creation of models more lightweight.


So, as has been recently communicated from the blog of Facebook Research, reporting on the presentation of “a new architecture for optical which is significantly more compact and offers the potential for a better visual performance”.

“Facebook Reality Labs (FRL) is always exploring new architectures for optical to improve the form factor, comfort and optical performance”, say from the blog.

In a document entitled ‘Optical hologram to a virtual reality as thin and light’, researchers Andrew Maimone and Junren Wang proposed “a new class of screens,” closest to the eye that combine “the power of the optical hologram and the folding optic based polarization”. The approach, they say, could be used “to develop future equipment of virtual reality with appearance sunglasses”. These two methods help to keep the lens as thin as possible while making the most efficient use of space”.


Likewise, a device so light and comfortable -the prototype has a thickness of screen of less than 9mm – it could lead to “extended sessions” VR.
