Developing for Augmented Reality

Companies and individuals developing augmented reality devices and applications are invited to visit our Developer Zone for more detailed technical information relating to our world leading technology and to find details of how to purchase Waveguides

Developer Zone

The Challenge

The challenge for augmented reality device developers has been to incorporate an optical component next to the eye that allows the individual to see the world, while also enabling a high definition and transparent overlay of information.

The Solution

TruLife Optics has overcome this challenge by developing a holographic solution that for the first time allows transparent, full colour 2D or 3D images to be displayed via optics that are less than 3mm thick.

Our holographic component is transparent, efficient, high definition and full colour and can be customised for specific applications and customer requirements.

Available today

The breakthrough technology, created in partnership with the UK’s National Physical Laboratory, is available to purchase today. Please visit our Developers Zone for more information, including full technical specifications.
