VR glasses are increasingly popular, but they have usually been heavy and oversized – until now. Large-area microdisplays are expected to change that, because they make it possible to produce ergonomic and lightweight VR glasses. The new OLED displays now reach very high frame rates and achieve extremely high resolutions with “extended full HD”.
Under the direction of the Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP (Dresden, Germany), an in-house Fraunhofer project for the development of biodegradable electronics was launched last year. The Fraunhofer Institute for Electronic Nano Systems ENAS, the Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT, the Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC, and the Fraunhofer Resource Recycling and Strategy Project Group IWKS are working together on the project. The first results of Fraunhofer FEP will be presented during Semicon Europe 2017 as part of productronica 2017 in Munich, Germany, from 14-17 November 2017.
Bidirectional OLED microdisplays developed at Fraunhofer FEP were successfully integrated for the first time into a demonstrator of data glasses for representing augmented and virtual realties (AR and VR) as well as 2D and 3D content.
