1 May 2007 I-PORT: new "hands-free" near-eye display
Author Affiliations +
The patent pending I-PORTTM is a highly versatile, hands-free, low profile near-eye display system. It was originally designed with the medical market in mind as a data (monocular) or surgical (binocular) head worn display. The concept takes advantage of a technique used with surgical loupes where they are sometimes mounted "into" eyeglasses. The I-PORTTMdisplay module is similarly mounted onto or into the spectacle lens of protective eyewear or sunglasses. The I-PORTTM is capable of various fields of view and resolutions while being low profile providing minimal obscuration. It is an ideal remote viewer for medical, military and commercial equipment. Our system is capable of producing fields of view greater than 50 degrees in full color and can incorporate either organic light emitting diode, (OLED) or active matrix liquid crystal display (AMLCD) image sources of various resolutions.
