Shiftall MaganeX – World’s first 5.2K HDR VR glasses (total)

Published

on

Shiftall, a subsidiary of Panasonic Corporation, has unveiled the MaganeX VR headset featuring 2.6K x 2.6K OLED Lightning micro displays (2560 x 2560 pixels each) with all-plastic optics developed by Kopin.

The manufacturer attributes MaganeX to its low weight (250 g) and the ability to track head movements in six degrees of freedom, as well as the presence of SteamVR applications. The small size of the displays, equal to 1.3 inches, and the small thickness of the optical system allowed the glasses to be small and light. In turn, the small size and weight allow you to wear glasses for a long time without experiencing discomfort, which makes the MaganeX compare favorably with today’s bulky VR headsets. The glasses are adjustable for interpupillary distance and diopter, so they can be used without corrective lenses.

The glasses support frame rates up to 120 Hz and 10-bit color representation. Using the patented ColorMax technology, in collaboration with Lakeside Optoelectronic Technology, Kopin has been able to optimize the two-tier OLED structure for color accuracy. The sRGB color space coverage is over 100%. At the same time, a very high current efficiency and a brightness of more than 1000 cd / m2 are achieved.2… The contrast ratio is over 10,000: 1. The bottom line is “studio quality” HDR VR. The optical system generates an image equivalent to viewing a screen with a diagonal of 5 meters from a distance of 3 meters.

The manufacturer has not yet announced the start date for sales. The estimated price of the glasses is no more than $ 900.

Startup Humane, founded by former Apple employees, has officially announced that its first products will be presented in the spring of 2023.

The era of

Former Apple designer Imran Chaudhry spoke at The Business of Fashion’s Voices 2022 conference about “the post-smartphone era and how artificial intelligence will change everything.” At the end of his speech, he confirmed the presentation of new products at the beginning of next year.

The teaser features a hand, the Humane logo, and the words “Spring 2023”. Presumably then we will see both wearables and the operating system or platform behind them.

The era of

Judging by the patents, teaser and previously released information, Humane is most likely working on an Android-based wearable device that projects an image onto your hand.

In addition, Chaudhry criticized smart glasses, stating that they “add a barrier between the person and their surroundings.” He believes that few people want to walk in this form.

Putting computation on our face not only makes us look funny, it doesn’t enhance our humanity either. Rather, it has a negative impact on our human connection because eye contact is an important part of human connection. It helps us understand each other and feel closer to others.
