We got an interesting press release this week and while the 4D title might feel like link bait, the name of the company might suggest otherwise. Honestly I’m not quite sure what Forth Dimensions Displays are going to be showing off at IVR 3D and Virtual Reality Expo, but they are showing a new product off today. While the image above might not be what Replicating Reality™ is, I did find the image above on their site and we should be hearing about it soon, that is if it’s not another panther. Why do you care? Well they did say it will be “Initially launching within the gaming industry,” check out the press release below and let us know what you think.
Forth Dimensions Displays (ForthDD) is to exhibit at this year’s IVR 3D and Virtual Reality Expo, which will be held from June 22-24, at Tokyo International Exhibition Center (Tokyo Big Sight). At the expo, ForthDD will unveil Replicating Reality™, a brand new concept which creates the ultimate experience by making the user feel fully immersed in a different world or hyper-reality. Initially launching within the gaming industry, it is hoped that this concept will eventually revolutionize the consumer entertainment industry.
IVR is Japan’s largest exhibition showcasing the latest in 3D technology and super-high definition imaging. The show attracts a huge amount of attendees from various sectors including manufacturing, broadcasting, entertainment, telecommunications, universities and research centers.
ForthDD, a wholly owned subsidiary of Kopin Corporation, is the world’s leading supplier of high resolution microdisplays for Near-To-Eye (NTE) applications. The company’s experience supplying displays for high-performance training and virtual reality head-mounted displays (HMDs) had a huge part to play in the development of the Replicating Reality™ concept which will be demonstrated through a fully immersive 3D HMD. This demo will enable the user to experience motor racing in a new way – as if driving on a real racetrack. This concept has been designed to be both thought provoking and suggestive and has few limitations as to which applications it could be used for. This leaves the mind to ponder what the future really holds for the entertainment industry.
