Dispelix and OQmented form strategic partnership
Dispelix, the global leader of waveguide displays, and OQmented, the expert in high-performance MEMS mirror-based ultracompact projectors, have formed a strategic partnership to collaborate on the development and commercialization of MEMS- based LBS technology. As a result of this partnership, their smart glasses demonstration brings together OQmented’s one-chip MEMS projection solution and Dispelix’ diffractive waveguide display.
The benefits of augmented reality (AR) applications affect various industries, from healthcare to manufacturing. PwC estimates that augmented reality will add over 1 trillion USD to the global economy by 2030. Lightweight smart glasses will play an important part, but most encounter substantial technical challenges in early development. OQmented and Dispelix address such challenges as image resolution, field of view, power consumption, and battery life without the need for a bulky frame.
“We want to enable product developers to build powerful but also stylish AR glasses,” said Ulrich Hofmann, CEO/CTO and Co-founder of OQmented. “Laser beam scanning offers enormous potential for just that, and together with Dispelix, we have come up with a solution achieving top technical results but with the option of integrating this system in an elegant form factor. We are very excited to present our results at AWE in Santa Clara.”
“We continue to expand our breakthroughs and fundamentally change the way nanophotonics are designed. Today, working together with OQmented, leveraging LBS is part of that strategy. It has allowed us to execute quickly to fuel the growth of this dynamic market. We are beyond pleased with the performance and look forward to showing it at AWE in Santa Clara,” said Jussi Rahomäki, President, Dispelix USA.
OQmented is a deep tech company developing and selling high performance MEMS mirror- based projectors for ultracompact LBS displays and best in class 3D sensing solutions for mobile and stationary applications. The unique Lissajous scan pattern in combination with the patented vacuum packaging Bubble MEMS® technology and proprietary electronics and software enable new product categories in consumer and various other industries. www.oqmented.com
