Panasonic Unveils World’s First Ultra HD VR Eyeglasses

Emergent Insight:
VR headset innovators have a tough challenge. How do you get all that processing power, hardware, software and enough closure for immersion into a lightweight and comfortable wearable? And have superior quality resolution? Kyle Melnick of VR Scout reports from CES 2020 about a new VR headset from Panasonic that tries to do just that. It will be interesting to see what the FOV looks like in such small lenses. Immersion needs to surround the peripheral vision to be convincing. In any case, it is a good step forward in the ongoing goal of fully immersive VR with superior UX.

With CES 2020 set to kick-off tomorrow morning, companies are already hard at work promoting a fresh wave of groundbreaking technology that will soon be available to demo at the annual consumer electronics showcase.

This includes legendary Japanese electronics corporation Panasonic, which will be offering attendees a first-look at its compact VR eyeglasses, which are capable of displaying ultra high definition visuals that remove the dreaded “screen-door” effect from images, offering truly natural in-headset visuals.

Developed in collaboration with VR display manufacturer Kopin Corporation, the VR glasses feature a combination of Panasonic technology already utilized in existing products, such as Panasonic TVs and Blu-ray Disc Players, Technics audio devices, and LUMIX digital cameras. This includes a micro OLED panel, Technics’ original dynamic driver, as well as a new optical module which—according to Panasonic, Kopin Corporation, and 3M Company—creates “natural and distortion-free images in super single focus.”

The result is a lightweight VR headset capable of offering impressive 3D visuals using minimal hardware. Used in combination with 5G connectivity, Panasonic claims the device will serve as the perfect tool for viewing certain VR content, such as live sporting events, as well as virtual tours and travel experiences.
