Mojo Vision and DigiLens partner on products for AR glasses
Mojo Vision Inc of Saratoga, CA, USA — which is developing and commercializing micro-LED display technology for consumer, enterprise and government applications — has partnered with DigiLens Inc (a developer of head-worn holographic display and waveguide technology) to integrate its micro-LED technology with DigiLens’ surface relief gratings (SRG) technology and holographic waveguides for peak optimization. The partnership aims to accelerate the development of products for the augmented reality (AR)/extended reality (XR) market, combining the capabilities of each company’s technology.
Mojo Vision has already debuted industry-first technology including the smallest, densest dynamic display for the first AR smart contact lens.
Micro-LED displays are a critical component for powering AR/XR immersive, experiential products and systems. Mojo says that its high-performance micro-LED display technology has the capability to deliver the necessary resolution, performance and efficiency for advanced AR/XR systems, especially in form factors like smart glasses. Together, Mojo Vision and DigiLens aim to deliver on these requirements and enhance DigiLens’ existing products for best-in-class performance in the near-term, while collaborating to drive commercialization and adoption of the next generation of AR/XR products in the long term.
“Bringing our technologies together will raise the bar on display performance, and efficiency in the AR/XR industry,” reckons Mojo Vision’s CEO Nikhil Balram. “Partnering with DigiLens brings AR glasses closer to mass-scale consumer electronics. These devices require a single-panel RGB micro-LED display with very small pixels, high brightness and efficiency, and a holographic waveguide with great uniformity, large field of view, minimal eye glow in a lightweight, compact form factor,” he adds.
“Mojo’s proven micro-LED technology stands out from the competition, providing the high-resolution, integrated RGB panel solution that enables a form factor small enough for AR smart glasses,” comments DigiLens’ CEO Chris Pickett. “Combined with DigiLens’ advanced SRG+-based waveguide displays, which produce best-in-class optical efficiencies and performance, the total form factor of the AR glasses can finally be small and light enough for consumers to wear for long periods of time and bright enough to allow them to see the superimposed digital information — even on a sunny day — without needing to darken the lenses.”
