Part One and Two of the Trilogy Available on YouTube

In part one of the three-part webinar series “AR and VR: The Paradigm Shift to Smart Glasses Starts Now – the Past,” Dr. Fan discussed past efforts to create AR/VR solutions and lessons learned from some of these high-profile efforts. To listen to a replay of part one of the three-part webinar series, please go to YouTube.

In part two “AR and VR: The Paradigm Shift to Smartglasses Starts Now – The Present,” Dr. Fan discussed the present state-of-the-art, profiling some interesting successes, and the key elements of those successes. To listen to a replay of part two, please go to YouTube.

All three segments will be available for replay on Kopin’s website at www.kopin.com.

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.
