In March 2015 the Fraunhofer FEP demonstrated its second-generation bi-directional OLED microdisplays, with a resolution of 800x600 (SVGA), up from VGA in the first generation first unveiled in 2012.
The Fraunhofer is now making a new development platform of these bi-directional eyeglasses, based on the new microdisplays, available to clients creating proprietary products. The updated platform has a new hardware design with standard HDMI and USB interfaces. The new eyeglasses were developed as part of the FAIR project, funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
The Fraunhofer also details some suitable applications for such a device. One application, developed as part of the FAIR project, was a communications and entertainment platform for ALS patients. Another application uses the glasses for calibration of pressure regulators in production facilities.
