Kopin Unveils World’s Smallest Smart Glass Display


Kopin’s Vista Technology with Ultra-compact Display Modules to Enable
Smart Eyewear Products that Consumers Want to Wear

Kopin Corporation (Nasdaq: KOPN), a leading developer of innovative
wearable computing technologies and solutions, today announced the
world’s smallest smart glass display. The PupilTM display
module with only 2mm height is part of Kopin’s VistaTM
portfolio of technologies featuring Kopin’s ultra-compact Cyberdisplay®
LCD and miniature optics that project a high-resolution, high-brightness
image comparable in size to a smart phone display. Using Kopin Vista
technology, smart eyewear can look like a normal pair of glasses. The
2mm displays will be shown at CES®2016.

Kopin Corporation announced the world’s smallest smart glass display on January 4, 2016, Westborough, Mass. At 2mm in in height, it allows makers of wearables to design less bulky, more fashionable smart eyewear. The 2mm displays will be demonstrated at CES®2016. A 4mm version of the display is shown here as part of Kopin’s own brand of cycling smart sunglasses. The display module is located in front of the lens, providing cyclists a head-up display for easy access to performance data.

“Our Vista display modules have been optimally designed with an
integrated optic, display, and backlight in a compact product-ready
package, which provides an augmented reality experience with a vivid and
bright sunlight-readable image while using minimal power,” said Yoichi
Iba, Kopin’s Chief Optics Scientist and inventor of the Pupil optics.
“Look in the mirror at your eye and now imagine a display the size of
your pupil which provides see-through/see-around viewing without the
higher power consumption of other see-through technologies. That is what
we achieved when we introduced the 4mm display module last year. With
today’s debut of 2mm technology, Kopin has set yet another standard for
world’s smallest display module.”

To demonstrate the power of Kopin’s Vista display technology in a smart
eyewear design that meets aesthetic and functional requirements, Kopin
unveiled its own brand of cycling smart sunglasses — Solos
at last September’s Interbike trade show to great reviews. The
stylish Solos eyewear incorporates the 4mm version of Kopin’s Pupil
display module in front of the lens, providing cyclists head-up display
for easy access to performance data.

Kopin also created a very stylish concept eyeglass with a 4mm version of
Pupil display module imbedded behind the eyeglass frame and totally
invisible from outside. The result: smart eyewear that is as fashionable
and familiar looking as it is functional.

“Kopin believes head-worn devices will be the ultimate wearable device
because most human senses are around our head,” said Dr. John C.C. Fan,
President and CEO of Kopin Corporation. ”To be widely accepted by users,
these devices should be stylish, lightweight, comfortable, and, most
importantly, a familiar look. Our super compact Vista products allow the
design of the smart eyewear that meets these requirements. Whether you
are protecting the free world, checking your warehouse inventory,
monitoring your heart rate while cycling, or just looking up directions
to a new restaurant – Kopin technology will allow us all to keep our
heads up and take it all in.”

Today’s announcement expands the Vista product portfolio available to
OEM customers, which includes PupilTM and PearlTM
display modules. The Pupil modules are intended for consumer eyeware
products and the Pearl modules are for enterprise headsets. Pupil
modules are offered in two resolutions: WQVGA (428 x 240) and nHD (640 x
360). Pearl displays are offered in three resolutions: WQVGA (428 x
240), nHD (640 x 360) and WVGA (854 x 480).

The Vista portfolio of technologies including the 2-mm Pupil module and
stylish concept eyewear will be showcased at Kopin’s exclusive VIP
reception – Wearables: The Missing Pieces – in Kopin’s suite at the
Palazzo during CES. In addition, Solos cycling smart sunglasses will be
exhibited at Booth 74334 in the Fitness and Technology Market Place
during CES. Additional information is available at events@kopin.com.
