Brother’s AirScouter shows a 16-inch display right onto your eye


Brother has been trying to perfect eye displays for a while now. The company has now produced their AirScouter, which floats a 16-inch display right onto your beloved eyeball. It just received its first real live demonstration in Japan, and the word on the street is that it works. So what does it do exactly?

The prototype Retinal Imaging Display (RID) projects safe, fast-moving light directly onto your retina that appears to the viewer as a 16-inch display floating transparently at a distance of about 3 feet. Now that’s some sci-fi s$@t right there. The tech apparently comes from the company’s own printer technology, although in the sense that fast food burger tech comes from the same place as the best steak in the whole world.

The company plans to release the AirScouter in Japan intended for industrial use, where converts will use it to help them operate heavy machinery that need constant holographic instruction. More on this as it develops.
