At the moment we can establish a communication channel with any person in the world, almost instantly, and yet an in-person meeting has a completely different quality.
Participants don't need a setup, but walk into the holodeck with their Gixel glasses and meet the other participants in life size.
Picture taken through the current Gixel AR glasses
An extremely large field of view, allowing for more than just a - cropped - window.
It is immediately clear where the participants' attention is: ‘can YOU do that for me please’
Audio comes from the right direction; heads turn subconsciously as in real life.
And working materials such as paper, pen, laptop and a whiteboard can be used as usual.
The first version of our Holodeck in action
Not like a helmet, but looks & feels like normal glasses (including your individual visual acuity).
Your face is not covered and therefore facial expression and direct eye contact are preserved.
Designed for day-to-day use : Lightweight and therefore truly comfortable.
