Display Daily Senior Analyst, SID Display Information Article, & Speaking at AWE


I want my readers to know about my first article on Display Daily as a “Senior Analyst” and the article I wrote for the March/April SID Information Display. I will be speaking and attending the upcoming AWE 2023 Conference from May 31st through June 2nd. I also recently recorded another AR Show Podcast with Jason McDowell, which should be published in a few weeks.

I also wanted you to know I have a lot of travel planned for May, so there may not be much, if anything, published on this blog in May. But I have several articles in the works for this month and should have more to discuss in June.

Display Daily Article On Apple – New “Senior Analyst”

Display Daily, a division of Jon Peddie research, has just put out an article by me discussing long-rumored Apple Mixed Reality headset. In some ways, this follows up an article I wrote for Display Daily in 2015 titled VR and AR Head Mounted Displays – Sorry, but there is no Santa Claus.

Display Daily and I are looking at joint wrote and video projects. I will be teaming up with Display Daily as a “Senior Analyst” on these new projects while I continue to publish this blog.

SID Information Display Magazine’s March/April 2023 Article, “The Crucial Role of Optics in AR/MR”

I was asked to contribute an article to SID’s Information Display Magazine’s printed and online March/April 2023 issue.

The article (available for free download) discusses the most common types of optics and displays used in mixed reality today and what I see as the technologies of the future.

Attending and Presenting at AWE 2023

AWE has been the best conference for seeing a wide variety of AR, VR, and MR headsets for many years. While I mostly spend my time on the show floor and in private meetings to see the “good stuff,” I have been invited to give a presentation this year. The Topic of the presentation will be the pros and cons of Optical versus Video Passthrough Mixed Reality. The conference runs from May 31st to June 2nd. I will be presenting at 9:00 AM on June 2nd.

My Long History with Display Daily (20+ Years) and even Longer with Jon Peddie (40+ Years)

I’ve been interacting with Display Daily and its former parent company Insight Media headed by Chris Chinnock, who is still a Display Daily Contributor since I left Texas Instruments to work on LCOS display devices in 1998. Meko, headed by Bob Raikes, took over Display Daily in 2014, then late in 2022, Jon Peddie Research acquired Display Daily.

It turns out that I had known market analyst Jon Peddie since the mid-1980s when he was the chief architect of the TMS34010, the world’s first fully programmable graphics processor, and led the definition of other graphics devices, including the first Video DRAM. Jon suggested we work together on some projects, and I have become a Senior Analyst at Display Daily.
