Kopin® Corporation, a leading developer and provider of transmissive and reflective active matrix liquid crystal and organic light emitting diode (OLED) microdisplays used in military, enterprise, industrial, medical and consumer products, announced that its CEO, Dr. John Fan, will participate in the second of a new webinar trilogy entitled “AR and VR: The Paradigm Shift to Smartglasses Starts Now – The Present”.
In the first webinar, Dr. John Fan, CEO of Kopin Corporation talked about past efforts to create AR/VR solutions and lessons learned from some of these high-profile efforts. You can view the recording of this webinar HERE or by visiting Kopin’s website at www.kopin.com
In part two, Dr. Fan will tackle the present state-of-the-art, profiling some interesting successes, and the key elements of those successes. He will pronounce that the tipping point has arrived in some markets and that we are fast approaching widespread adoption.
In part three, Dr. Fan will look to the future of AR/VR smartglasses, offering a roadmap to successful product development needed for the complete platform shift. In ten to fifteen years, this ecosystem can grow to a trillion-dollar market..
Note: each webinar requires a dedicated registration
Dr. Fan is uniquely qualified to present his vision of the AR/VR journey having worked to develop AR and VR solutions for 30 years, starting with Kopin’s pioneering work for DARPA on microdisplays and systems.
“Kopin has been an innovator in the AR/VR space for a long time and I have seen many successes and failures,” noted Dr. Fan. “So many elements must come together to offer a compelling AR or VR solution and we technologists can get too impatient or too aggressive in making the big leap. Or, we get lost in the lab working on individual separate pieces and lose track of the bigger picture. This webinar series is designed to take a step back from the technical details and look at AR and VR in a broader, more holistic, historical and aspirational perspective,” concluded Dr. Fan.
