High-Res Display for PDA


High-Res Display for PDAPocket PC users can now utilise a wearable, high-resolution secondary screen with four times the viewing area of their standard PDA.

The “Second Sight” display system delivers a full colour VGA (640 x 480) viewing experience equivalent to a 15″ monitor at a distance of 21″ using a low-profile head-mounted display and a standard CompactFlash card.The Second Sight display is readable in daylight or darkness, attaches to most eye or safety glasses and the non-immersive display can be positioned so as not to obstruct a user’s field of vision allowing for wearable computing applications with hands-free operation.

The system includes software drivers which convert the low-resolution output of today’s PDAs to desktop computer high-resolution images. The software “echoes” the PDA desktop by simultaneously displaying its same contents. Most image formats can be viewed in full VGA resolution a software developer’s kit promises specialised high-resolution and dual-monitor capabilities.

Interactive Imaging Systems developed the system using a miniature head-mounted display developed by The MicroOptical Corporation. Second Sight was shown at CTIA WIRELESS earlier this month. Follow the links below to learn more.
