Near-Eye Light Field Display

This 2013 technology demo from Nvidia Research shows how true depth perception can be generated within the confines of a head-mounted display.

This light-field-based approach to near-eye display allows for dramatically thinner and lighter head-mounted displays capable of depicting accurate accommodation, convergence, and binocular-disparity depth cues. The near-eye light-field displays depict sharp images from out-of-focus display elements by synthesizing light fields that correspond to virtual scenes located within the viewer’s natural accommodation range.
