For the past decade, optics and display hardware developments for mixed reality and smart glasses were merely a shot in the dark, providing enough display immersion and visual comfort for developers to build up apps, especially for the enterprise field. Today, as universal use cases for consumer emerge such as co-presence, digital twin and remote conferencing, new optical functionalities are required to enable such experiences. It is not only a race to smaller form factor and light weight devices for large field of view (FOV) and lower power, but the requirements are also on additional display and sensing features specifically tuned to implement such new universal use cases. Broad acceptance of wearable displays especially in the consumer field is contingent on enabling these new display and sensing requirements in small form factors and low power. This talk will focus on waveguide combiner technologies and how these architectures have evolved over the past years to address such new requirements
