WaveOptics General Information

Description

Developer of a patented technology based on waveguides for projected display applications designed to offer a safe, quick and enriched world. The company claims that it's device's optical design harnesses waveguide hologram physics and photonic crystals rather than conventional augmented reality projection and with the help of the thin transparent substrate sheets of glass or plastic contain nanostructures that use optical physics to manipulate the behavior of light to form patterns on a display driven by mini projectors, allowing users with a large field of view through thin lenses without any need for the bulky engines or drivers.
