Tekcapital Acquires Exclusive License to Portfolio of 13 Optical Technology Patents


A prototype next-generation Head Mounted Projection Display.

From UCF Today:

Tekcapital plc (AIM: TEK), an international provider of technology and intellectual property services, is pleased to announce that it has acquired the exclusive worldwide license to a portfolio of 13 optical technology patents from UCF. The patents enable the development of new, small form, lightweight and see-through high-resolution, head-mounted projection displays with eye tracking. Suitable for collaborative augmented reality (“AR”) applications, the patents are able to support a wide range of consumer, medical, military and industrial applications.

This broad technology portfolio is designed to be incorporated into many existing optical systems such as head-mounted displays and also has the potential to empower the development of next generation wearable optics for both augmented reality and fully immersive virtual reality (“VR”) applications. Wearable displays with compact illumination are able to project video, navigation, messaging and games and overlay augmented reality applications on a large virtual screen format with hands free operation.  The patent portfolio enables design trade-offs between packaging, illumination, field of view and resolution for AR/VR head-mounted projected displays.  more...
