Google is Developing a VR Display With 10x More Pixels Than Today's Headsets

Earlier this year, Clay Bavor, VP of #VR/AR at Google, revealed a “secret project” to develop a #VR-optimised OLED panel capable of 20 megapixels per eye. The project was mentioned during SID Display Week 2017 but has gone largely under the radar as little information has surfaced since. Following a general overview of the limits […] [Read More]

The project was mentioned during SID Display Week 2017 but has gone largely under the radar as little information has surfaced since.
Following a general overview of the limits of current #VR technology, and an announcement that Google is working with Sharp on developing LCDs capable of #VR performance normally associated with OLED, Bavor revealed an R&D project that hopes to take #VR displays to the next level.
“We’ve partnered deeply with one of the leading OLED manufacturers in the world to create a #VR-capable OLED display with 10x more pixels than any commercially available #VR display today,” Bavor said.
At 20 megapixels per eye, this is beyond Michael Abrash’s prediction of 4Kx4K per eye displays by the year 2021.
He briefly described how foveated rendering combined with eye tracking and other optical advancements will allow for more efficient use of such super high resolution #VR displays.
