Brother's Retinal Imaging Display glasses

The firm's specs are based on Retinal Imaging Display (RID) technology which projects light directly onto the wearer’s retina. The viewer sees the image as a pictures in front of their eye.

Each projected image, Brother said, is transparent and appears as a 10cm² object at a distance of 1m.

Images also have an 800 x 600 resolution. The picture is refreshed at 60Hz, Brother added.

The firm’s specs consist of three core parts: an optical scanner, eyepiece, and light source made-up of red, green and blue laser diodes. This light source hides within the gadget’s power box, which measures 95 x 170 x 30mm.

Brother has plans to commercialise the glasses next year, but it hasn't said how much it expects the specs to cost. ®
