Control, Zoom, & View Documents Hands Free with OLED Glasses

by Stephen BrownJanuary 27, 2013

Scientists at COMEDD have managed to successfully develop glasses which enable the wearer to virtually flip pages on a digital document – without the need for the actual movement of one’s hands.

Yes sir, non-physical manipulation of a digital book does sound like a decent idea, especially for technicians, surgeons, and basically anyone else who require a hands-free document navigation experience. Within the lenses lie a combination of photodiodes and OLED pixels, where the former will function as a camera, helping register the direction of the wearer’s eye movements, while the OLED pixels will work together in order to form a display which is overlaid on the view via the glasses.

While you are busy occupied with a particular task at hand, you will still be able to read up on the next step without any worries. Assuming you look up “as if at the horizon,” your eyes will be greeted by the document which is displayed as though it is being projected at a size of about one meter (3.3 feet) right in front of you. Just to turn pages, all you need to do is just glance at an arrow within the display itself. This is different compared to the Project Glass from Google that require you to tilt your head to control the display. Not only that, the chip inside the Fraunhofer glasses lets you send and receive information simultaneously, in a wireless manner to boot.
