SIGGRAPH 2019: Lemnis Technologies Unveils Verifocal™ Mixed Reality Headsets with New Generation Eye Tracker
Date:7/26/2019

Lemnis Technologies, the technology company behind the award-winning Verifocal™ platform, today announced the first mixed reality headsets to include a new generation eye tracker with hassle-free calibration. The headsets will be demonstrated at the SIGGRAPH 2019 Exhibition in Los Angeles, California (July 30 - August 1). SIGGRAPH attendees will be able to try Verifocal™ headsets in professional applications and to experience the benefits of Verifocal™ in the context of mixed reality learning and training.

The Verifocal™ platform developed by Lemnis Technologies (http://www.lemnis.tech) addresses the eye strain, visual discomfort, and low image clarity that plague today's VR and AR. Current headsets focus at a fixed distance, leading to sensory conflicts when users observe nearby objects. In contrast, headsets with Verifocal™ adjust the focus naturally as the user looks around, eliminating the vergence-accommodation conflict with a combination of advanced software and hardware. This leads to more natural experiences and improves text readability, enabling applications involving virtual objects within arm's reach, such as reading an instruction manual or training with hand-based interaction.

At SIGGRAPH, Lemnis Technologies will demonstrate headset prototypes based on commercial devices, augmented with a set of unique features to enable best-in-class visual fidelity in Mixed Reality:

  • Hassle-free eye tracking monitors user's eye movements to enable analysis and adjustments in real-time. Based on advanced computer vision algorithms and over two years of development, Lemnis' eye tracking system is calibrated only once per user. This significantly lowers the barrier of entry to eye tracking in a professional setting, with no recalibration needed when repositioning the headset or after taking it off.
  • Vision correction incorporates the user's eyeglasses prescription directly into the headset optics. This eliminates the need of eyeglasses for most users, leading to a more comfortable experience with a larger field of view. A single device can be shared by multiple users, with a tailored correction for each.
  • Verifocal™ AR enables video pass-through augmented reality thanks to high-speed stereo cameras with large field of view. Dynamic camera focus combined with eye tracking makes it possible to focus on real objects at any distance, increasing visual clarity and image sharpness in mixed reality applications such as reading or hands-on training.

Headsets powered by Verifocal™ are compatible with leading VR engines such as Unity and SteamVR, along with professional applications such as Lockheed Martin's Prepar3D® simulation software, Autodesk® VRED™ and 3ds Max visualization software.

"Today we have reached a significant milestone in Lemnis' mission to make Mixed Reality viable as the next computing platform," states Dr. Pierre-Yves Laffont, CEO and co-founder of Lemnis Technologies. "We help build the ideal headsets for demanding professionals seeking the highest visual fidelity. Our patent-pending Verifocal™ platform, combined with our state-of-the-art eye tracker and varifocal video pass-through AR, turns Mixed Reality from an oddity into a transformative business tool. This opens new opportunities for training, product design, engineering, and other applications far beyond consumer-oriented gaming."

Lemnis Technologies invites all interested partners to experience Verifocal™ mixed reality at SIGGRAPH 2019 or schedule a private demo at demos@lemnis.tech.
