Growing affordability of components such as micro displays,
and increased applications of head mounted displays for fields such as
medicine, military, gaming, and augmented reality among others are anticipated to
boost the prospects of the head
mounted display market for the years ahead.
What are some key demand-driving
factors translating into effective adoption of helmet mounted/eye wear display
With easy access to lightweight materials for helmet mounted
displays (HMD), and increased adoption by military and healthcare
professionals, these devices are anticipated to witness a strong rate of
Military applications of security, training, monitoring, and
simulations are increasing adoption of HMD devices in the field. Moreover,
manufacturers are developing awareness programs about health hazards for
prolonged use of wearable displays, or stereoscopic display, are anticipated to
help users to utilize helmet mounted display devices in the long run.
On the other hand, the higher portability, smaller size, and
lower weight of eye wear devices are anticipated to increase the demand for
such wearable devices in the near future.
Throw some light on
the technological advancements being made for efficient Head Mounted Displays.
Offering significant advantages to surgical, industrial, and
military devices, the Ultra high pixel density display (UHPD) platform makes
use of a proprietary red/green/blue organic light-emitting diode, which
provides an active matrix that are ideal for virtual reality and augmented
reality compatible headsets. Similarly, smart pixel IC (SPIC) has been
developed by INT Tech as a board scale solution that allows the integrated
functioning of multiple sensors on the rear pane of the display, which is based
on thin film transistors. The technology allows for sensing fingerprints,
proximity, eye tracking, and light generation, making it ideal for bio-sensory
devices and integration through internet of things (IoT).
Moreover, the rising use of head mounted projection displays
(HMPD), provide easier display corrections and improved depth perception owing
the use of retro reflective material, occlusion optics, and side-mounted
What is the future of
head mounted displays in entertainment and gaming?
The applications of
head mounted display devices are anticipated to grow at a relatively faster
rate in comparison to other fields in the near future owing to recent
enhancements to high resolution displays, improvements to video capabilities,
and 3D video display functionality, which is considered as the next stage in
entertainment by the vast majority of end users.
On the other hand, such devices are still plagued by a
number of disadvantages such as wide bezels, lack of compatibility for vertical
integration, and side effects such as headaches and fatigue after prolonged use
are keeping manufacturers from reaching their peak. When such problems are
surmounted in the future, head mounted display devices are anticipated to make
all conventional computer and console monitors completely obsolete.
