Replicating Reality aims to resurrect HMD based Virtual Reality at the E3 2011

If you'd asked me 15 years ago, I would have said that in 2011 we would all be wearing normal looking glasses that project virtual reality world views directly onto our eyes in HD all the time. We are still years away from fully immersed virtual reality systems for the mass market. HMD based VR is still a novelty experience.

Forth Dimension Displays, a subsidiary of Kopin Corporation are now taking another push to make HMD based virtual reality systems for gaming a reality. They will introduce Replicating Reality at the E3 2011. Replicating Reality is a new concept to create the ultimate experience by making the user feel fully immersed in a different world or hyper-reality. Replicating Reality will be showcased through the use of a fully immersive 3D Head Mounted Display (HMD) demonstrator which enables the gamer to experience car racing as if driving on a real racing track.

Replicating Reality will be showcased at the E3 2011 with the use of a fully immersive 3D Head Mounted Display (HMD) demonstrator which enables the gamer to experience car racing as if driving on a real racing track. The concept has few limitations for which applications it could be used for, leaving the mind to ponder what the future really holds for the entertainment industry.

Forth Dimension Displays offers HMDs with micro displays offering 1,280x1024px today. In 2012 the company plans to introduce HMDs with resolution of 2,048x1,536px. See also the Replicating Reality site.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
