Compact RGB Laser Module for AR Smart Glasses


AR Smart Glasses need to be comparable to normal glasses in respect of size, weight and esthetics. By using Laser Beam Scanning (LBS) the optical engine i.e. the image projector can be miniaturized down to sizes of 1cc only, allowing smart integration into the glasses temples. In contrast to 2D microdisplays like LCoS, DLP or [...]
