JACKSONVILLE BEACH – NewSight Reality, Inc. announced the successful demonstration of breakthrough core technology at the heart of its Transparent Optical Module in collaboration with United States Special Operations Command in advancing the development and capabilities of TOM.
NSR’s TOM display engines will enable the Augmented Reality market to finally meet the objectives of normalized use in real-world applications.
TOM is a proprietary near-eye display that takes a completely new and simple approach to augmented reality (AR)/mixed reality (MR) displays (XR). Integrating all the elements of augmented reality, TOM replaces the light engine and optical engine with a multi-layer, hermetically sealed transparent module. This technology is fundamentally different from existing AR technologies by providing innovative and disruptive features, such as:
- Weight < 2 grams based on scalability desired
- Thickness < 2mm, embeddable into prescription or planar glasses or headsets
- Transparency ~90%
- Curved, monocular or binocular applications
- Field calibration not required if dropped (hermetically sealed)
- Highly efficient – energy usage and heat dissipation permit high brightness in daylight application
“We are not competing with the large manufacturers or enterprise integrators that are building XR solutions,” said Phil Garfinkle, CEO of NewSight Reality. “We are providing next-generation display and optics that will integrate with and improve XR products and solutions to deliver the true promise and value the market expects.”
NewSight Reality has reimagined the display from the ground up, creating a sleek, single package that dramatically improves the functionality and usability of augmented reality in both enterprise and consumer application environments.
In conjunction with NewSight Reality’s latest milestone achievement, the company will be seeking its first round of strategic investment to help further accelerate the delivery, scale, and market development of its proprietary TOM solution. The company is targeting a raise of $10 million to $20 million for this round and will be scheduling private demonstrations of the TOM technology as part of the process.
