TheFeature :: The Eyes Have It
"On first glance, the virtual retinal display (VRD) developed at the University of Washington's Human Interface Technology Laboratory resembles a traditional heads-up display, a tiny monitor mounted just inches from your eyeball. In fact, earlier this month Mitsubishi announced an inexpensive heads-up display called SCOPO. What makes the VRD so unique is that there is no screen. The device literally paints a video image onto your eyeball with a laser beam. The picture is crisper and brighter than any competing heads-up display and doesn't guzzle power like postage-stamp LCD or LED screens."
