Nvidia shows a near-eye lightfield display prototype with OLED microdisplays

NVIDIA unveiled a new research project that developed a near-eye light field display. A prototype unit was shown that uses two Sony ECX332A OLED microdisplays (1280x720 each). The microdisplays are covered with a micro-lens array which creates the light field.

The basic idea is that users can focus at multiple depth and create a field of view of about 70 degrees. If you wear glasses, this display can account for your glasses using software algorithms. Check out the video above for more info.

Sony's ECX332A are 0.7" 1280x720 microdisplays that offer 97% NSTC color gamut, 0.01 ms response time and 200 cd/m2 brightness. It uses a white OLED with color-filters design.
