At CES, this VR headset wears you

Hot on the heels from its $15 million fundraise only a few months in the past, Brelyon confirmed off its imaginative and prescient for what immersive visuals might appear like. At CES in Las Vegas, we tried out the 8K absolutely immersive OLED show, which provides a VR headset-like expertise with out having to strap something to your face.

“Brelyon Fusion allows the blending of light to scale field-of-view in a new way that achieves multiples of resolution,” defined Barmak Heshmat, CEO and founding father of Brelyon in an interview with TechCrunch. “This kind of new lightfield expansion innovation really allows us to think of light as pieces of LEGO blocks that can computationally be built to create a more immersive screen.”

The tech is at the moment a prototype that received’t hit the marketplace for a short while but – the corporate guesses 3-4 years from now – nevertheless it’s deeply spectacular nonetheless. The core know-how is what the corporate calls Ultra Reality, usingprecise wavefront engineering to create an enormous area of view with a profiled true optical depth. The upshot is a show that fully surrounds your area of view. It additionally provides spatial audio, and makes use of a sequence of cameras to trace your head place, adjusting what the show is exhibiting accordingly for max immersion.

So, er, who’s it for?

“We see this as a parallel to a headset experience, without people having to put on any headsets. Of course, the Enterprise market is one of the early adopters. They are already buying some of our older models,” Heshmat explains. “This will be fantastic for gamers, anyone that uses multi-monitor setups, or wants to do something with headsets but doesn’t want to stand up and dance all the time. It is a very  immersive desktop experience.”

The firm factors out that the market has spent tens of billions of {dollars} shopping for VR headsets, however that it believes that immersion shouldn’t equal headsets.

“There should be other solutions for people that don’t want to wear headsets, but still want to get immersed. What’s happening in the industry is that because headsets are becoming more mainstream, some of the elements that were used for headsets are now becoming lower-priced,” Heshmat says. “That allows us to create what we call ‘optical displays.’ They use a combination of optics and computational techniques to give you these virtual images without you having to wear goggles. We are the architect of these new categories of displays.”

If you want your movies with a little bit of deep-trance music and music-video model quick edits, Brelyon has some extra visuals for you:
