CES 2023 (4) – VoxelSensors 3D Perception, Fast and Accurate

Attending AR/VR/MR and Photonics West Conference I will attend the AR/VR/MR conference next week (as I write this article). I have already had many people ask if I would be there and like meeting blog readers. I have been reviewing the AR/VR/MR program, and there are many interesting talks. This is the best conference to…

CES 2023 (Part 3) – Addoptics Custom Optics (Better than Luxexcel=Meta?)

Updated Jan 23, 2023 – Corrections: Introduction This series on CES 2023 is starting with foundation technologies for AR/MR rather than products with Meta Materials’ non-polarizing dimming and Porotech’s MicroLED display technologies. Addoptics 3-D printable optics molds are a third in this series of foundation technology. Brad and I briefly discussed Luxexcel (and Meta Materials…

Apple Indefinitely Delays AR Product (Bloomberg Report)

Apple’s never announced but widely reported AR product is “Indefinitely Delayed,” According to Bloomberg’s Gurman. At least as far back as 2019, I have been saying, “All of Apple’s money won’t buy them different physics.” Now we have a report from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman that Apple’s AR product has been delayed indefinitely. The story is…

CES 2023 (Part 2) – Porotech – The Most Advanced MicroLED Technology

Introduction I was about to write an article grouping several important technologies together, it kept being delayed as I needed more information on each one. I also could see that grouping the companies together would not give each company its due, as each is important to a different aspect of AR/MR. Therefore I decided to…

CES 2023 (Part 1) – Meta Materials’ Breakthrough Dimming Technology

Introduction – Met with over 20 Companies At CES 2023 It felt like the CES of old this year, with many meetings and interesting booths. Everything was scrambled around with no South Hall and a new West Hall. There were about 60% of the people and booths of pre-pandemic CES, but I could not have…

Meta Quest Pro (Part 1) – Unbelievably Bad AR Passthrough

Introduction I have been taking pictures and making short video clips to demonstrate different aspects of the displays and optics of the Meta Quest Pro (MQP) for over a month. It was a bit of an onion-peel where detecting one issue caused me to run experiments and take more pictures and videos to see what…

Apple Bought Limbak (SadlyItsBradley)

Just a short update to my December 29th article Limbak Bought by “Large US Company,” Brad of SadlyItsBradley reported on Twitter (link to whole thread) that his sources day that Apple is the “large company” that bought Limbak. Normally, I would just update the old article, but because it was Apple, I thought a new…

Limbak Bought by “Large US Company”

Yesterday’s article Meta Buys Luxexcel resulted in another tip I could confirm: Spanish optics design company Limbak was bought by “a large US company.” The speculation is that it might be either Apple or Meta, but I don’t have a specific company. Limbak website used to be http://www.limbak.com (the last WaybackMachine Capture of the Website…

Meta Buys Luxexcel

Just a quick note today about some news that just broke on Meta and Luxexcel. It Happens Again, Meta Buys Another Company I was in the middle of an in-depth analysis of the Meta Quest Pro’s Image Quality (or lack thereof) when news broke that Meta has bought Luxexcel, which has a process for making…
