Looks like I'm not totally out of my mind when I talk about Microvision as the display of choice for mobile augmented reality applications emerging imminently...thanks to Danny Golan for this awesome info.

Golantech: Nomad AR at SID Boston May 24-26

Hi,

A prototype of a Nomad Augmented Reality application will be available for review
at SID exhibition Boston 24-26 May

You browse around the exhibit hall with the Nomad see through display and the system tells you what you are looking at with up todate relevant information on the objects you are staring at.

This is part of a feasibility test project for military use where the system tells you if the dust cloud in the far distance is enemy or your friend.

When at the Microvision booth, ask to see the Israeli Nomad AR application.

I will be at SID exhibition most of the time to demo.
You may email me in advance to notify me when you plan to come.

Golantech: Nomad AR - GPS
The AR application at SID includes a digital mini compass a differential GPS (more accurate than standard GPS for precise location in urban areas) a GIS database (maps) and communication to other users in your group.

How it works:
GPS - tells the system where you are
Compass - tells the system where are looking
GIS - has the map information
communication - sends your location to peers

All this within the Nomad ballcap and Nomad control box on the belt.

The system algorithms make the calculations based on the info collected from these sensors (and a few others) to tell you what you are looking at, as you turn your head around.

Rbzeke: Re: Nomad AR - GPS
Thank you for that.

If you would please, where is the compass and the GPS located/housed? Is this a production ready unit or a cobbled together one to demonstrate software? That version has been showed at mvis for at least several years. Has it been refined to an acceptable, manufacturable, unified design?

rbzeke asked:
Q: If you would please, where is the compass
A: a mini electronic compass in the ball cap

Q: and the GPS located/housed?
A: GPS card in computer, antenna on vehicle

Q: Is this a production ready unit or a cobbled together one to demonstrate software?
A: It is part of AR feasibility test project.

Q: That version has been showed at mvis for at least several years.
A: Not this

Q: Has it been refined to an acceptable, manufacturable, unified design?
A: It is assembled of COTS (commercial Off The Shelf) elements. The sophistication is in the algorithms.

Q: my question - what are we waiting for
A: Form factor - MVIS has reached a reasonable size, we are waiting for color - coming soon.
To become commercial the unit price should go down from nK$ to 0.nK$ - some time later.

Why MVIS?
MVIS display technology has the potential to be the technology of choice for mobile display.
Because it generates "futons" and not "electrons" -
1. It will give the best performance per watt on the market.
2. It is the best "see through" for AR applications, and has superior brightness to any other display technology.
These are major issues for mobile devices.
