NAUSEA

You are not alone. These side effects are common, especially after prolonged use. Most users can only last a few minutes in Virtual Reality today. This has to be solved before VR/AR can become the next computing platform.

The Problem

The Problem

Today’s headsets create sensory conflicts that confuse the human visual system.

Head-mounted displays trick the user’s brain into perceiving depth by showing different images to the left and right eyes. However, they cannot make the eyes refocus at different distances because they use static optics and a fixed focal plane.

This is known as the vergence-accommodation conflict, a fundamental flaw in today’s Virtual and Augmented Reality. It limits their use to short experiences and constrained content.

We eliminate the root cause of visual discomfort

Lemnis Technologies eliminate the vergence-accommodation conflict by developing a varifocal platform that can control the focus dynamically in a head-mounted display.

Combining cutting-edge research with hands-on experience, our scientists and engineers have built software and hardware that enable, for the first time, dynamic focus and large field-of-view in compact head-mounted displays.

How it works

Our varifocal platform generates a varying focal plane that adapts in real-time. Using eye tracking to measure the user’s gaze direction, it identifies the optimal focus and adjusts the optics dynamically. This approach eliminates the vergence-accommodation conflict and increases user’s comfort – independent research from Stanford and Berkeley confirms it!
