Now technology has caught up with the VR hype. A personal mobile display called the Cy-Visor [tm] from Seoul, Korea-based Daeyang E & C is lightweight and provides bright, colorful images. A person wearing the display sees an image is if it were about 44 inches across and six and a half feet distant. The breakthrough, however, is the resolution. Past affordable personal displays were typically about one-third the resolution of television, whereas the Daeyang is more than twice the resolution of a standard TV.
The extra sharpness not only provides ample fidelity for television and DVDs, but also provides computer screen sharpness for PC games, web surfing, and even e-mail. The practical advantage is that personal display provides the equivalent of wide screen viewing in a small place, while affording privacy to the user and peaceful coexistence with others in the same room.
Applications for the display are found where ever space is at a premium. For example, medical personnel needing to review computer data may find a personal display more convenient than a conventional large screen CRT. The same is true of maintenance personal working at heights or in cramped quarters.
The Cy-Visor is compatible with television, S-VHS video, and SVGA (600 x 800) computer video from a PC. It has stereo earplugs built-in, and may be powered directly or with an optional battery. The unit costs $995 from U.S. distributor CGSD Corporation, http://www.cgsd.com/DaeyangHMD, 650-903-4920.
