How long do you reckon it will take for technology like this to shrink down to the size of regular/slightly bulkier prescription glasses?

How long do you reckon it will take for technology like this to shrink down to the size of regular/slightly bulkier prescription glasses?
Is it even realistic?

Apologies for yet another vision pro thread, but I am genuinely curious about what you guys think about this.

    that's what excites me about them. plasma TVs (as a CRT replacement) and smartphones were very thick when they came out, but look at them now.

    It doesn't matter who makes the "best" Black person goggle thing, it's all going to be very harmful to your healthy until we figure out how to send electrical signals directly through your optic nerve with a brain implant. For now you should be focused on getting the largest computer display you can tolerate and staying at least 1 meter away from it.

        Anyway the point is anyone wearing Black person goggles or similar gets blasted by a really fricking high dose of blue light radiation. We don't know how long of an exposure you would need for it to negatively affect your health. It could be as little as 1 hour for all we know.

    We need better batteries. That's what holds every technology back. Hell it holds humanity back as a whole. Our batteries fricking suck, years and years of research and development and our batteries are marginally better but the same fundamental shitty chemical batteries they've always been

    it's realistic but depends on the market. hopefully apple keeps driving "killer apps" - the market could make it a reality in one year or 10
    what you're envisioning will be what's called a retinal display. if they solve that with an elegant solution, the need for eye tracking and clunky miniaturized LCD's go away. Initially it will be a very lower power laser (black and white) rasterizing (line by line like a CRT) across the retina with a weak CPU. that will all be to preserve battery, probably 5 hours or so. Ideally the rasterizer would have no moving parts (i.e. an electric signal alters the optical properties of a lense to do the scan)

    I believe the F-35 fighter jet helmet already has this kind of tech that scans an image onto the retina, its been around a long time.

    The endgame would be to have an external wireless computing unit, as in using your phone to do the computing. This way you could minimize the size of the headset to bare minimum. The tricky part is powering the headset, it'll be hard to escape the wired battery.

      I disagree, the computer itself can get really small, what is tricky is shrinking optics and the battery

        The optics are already quite small, pic related. I circled the lense and the screen.

          what takes the most space are the device's frame, light cushion, front display, battery and head-strap.

          What is the actual resolution of those displays separately? If I did my math right with their claim of how many dots it has, it's around 4K per eye, right? I can't wait to see these in EVFs for cameras eventually.

            that's pretty impressive, nearly 12megapixels per eye. I didn't think we were quite there yet, but I guess I was wrong. Sony has been using these super dense OLED displays in their electronic viewfinders for their Alpha series cameras, and they are mighty impressive for the tiny 0.5inch displays they contain, so I guess this is just a scaled up version of that.

            I guess they ARE using Sony's micro OLED displays.

            oh okay, so still some ways to go for the technology before we feel like we're watching a 100inch 8K display, give it 5 years lol

    It's technically a phone with a laptop chip, so however long it takes them to stuff a phone in a glasses frame.

    depends on popularity and demand, but the technology to shrink it significantly is already available at a laboratory setting, impractical but it's there. Give it about the same amount of time it took smartphones to evolve from early Palm PDAs to iPhone 15 Pro, but adjusted for the accelerated rate of advancement. I expect to see it in the 2030s.

    Funny but also terrible, I'm so nearsighted that I can still see clearly in my Quest 3 without my glasses on. Yet I can also see clearly further away with my quest 3 with my glasses on. So I can definitely see these things replacing glasses as they get better.
