UK companies are setting the global standard for
the next wave of breakthroughs, particularly in technology.
The new wave of augmented reality
WaveOptics hopes to do for augmented reality (AR) what smartphones did for information access. The company is using waveguide technology to produce functional wearable headsets for an immersive and scalable AR experience.
Building scalable AR
“Providing the most immersive AR possible in a form people want to wear and being able to manufacture that scalably…those are the challenges WaveOptics have solved. Mass deployment [of AR] is not far away — in some use cases, as early as mid to end 2018.”
– Sumanta Talukdar, CEO and co-founder of WaveOptics
All the world’s a stage
Once AR headset technology is aesthetically innocuous enough for mass adoption, its capabilities will range from the practical to the fantastical. “The world will be your theatre,” says Talukdar. By manipulating light at the nano level, WaveOptics has solved the first major hurdle of perfecting the user’s display experience.
