Creator of the world’s most advanced AR/VR glasses.
IMMY has created the world’s most technologically advanced and Human-Centric augmented reality/virtual reality (AR/VR) glasses (the “IMMY®”).
IMMY has highly-accomplished and passionate team members with the unified goal of delivering the next major computing platform, while ensuring human comfort and safety.
Everyone in the industry agrees that the next major platform shift will be to AR/VR. In fact, this is estimated to be a $120 billion market opportunity. Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook recently stated that the industry standard will become AR/VR combined in a single platform.
There’s just one problem; current products fail to deliver immersive and emotionally engaging AR/VR content in a single mobile device that’s affordable, comfortable, and safe.
Zuckerberg believes that the world will see such a device within the next 10 years-IMMY has the solution now!
Our solution delivers an immersive and natural 3D AR/VR experience that will forever change the way people work, learn, and play, allowing IMMY to become the dominant AR/VR platform.
Our mission is to provide technology that expands people’s ability to experience, understand and interact with the world around them. The hardware and software under development by IMMY and its ecosystem partners are designed to augment the human sensory system, extending our powers of perception and emotional engagement.
By providing the right set of technologies to capture and enhance sensory data, while safely and comfortably delivering immersive content, we have created a platform that will enable developers to build amazing applications and tools that impact all aspects of our lives.
The emotional engagement enabled by the IMMY® instills tremendous passion in an individual. With passion, there is no limit to what a person can achieve.
Designed from the ground up with these critical features and capabilities:
This is one of the critical differences. With traditional see-through optical technologies used by all of our competitors, it is extremely difficult and cost prohibitive to exceed 40 degrees FoV. Most other companies offer FoV in the 30 degree range. In this restricted range, peripheral vision is not involved and there is no emotional connection to the actual content. The IMMY® is different. We have a 60 degree FoV per eye (some in the industry consider this 120 degree FoV). This enables the IMMY® to provide an immersive and emotional experience unlike any other products in the industry.
Most other devices are heavy and uncomfortable to wear. Due to our optical technology, the IMMY® is the lightest product at a 60 degree FoV, making it much more comfortable for extended use.
Viewers often complain about eye strain and motion sickness problems when they use other AR or VR devices. IMMY believes that eye-comfort/eye-safety are paramount. Our optic system emulates human vision and works with the eye, NOT against it, delivering the most comfortable and natural viewing experience. The only lens in our system is YOUR EYE.
The IMMY® is powered by a lens-less imaging system that replicates human vision and enables the most immersive, natural, and comfortable AR/VR experience available. N.E.O. has enabled our team to develop products with a large FoV, unparalleled eye comfort, and a lightweight and mobile form factor.
This technology allows the IMMY to provide both AR & VR in a single product. The IMMY® Intelli-Tint, a unique technology that enables variable transmission control of light entering the glasses, allows the user to have control over their interaction with the content. This also enables photorealistic delivery of AR and VR applications by blocking the light behind the generated images.
The IMMY® offers innovative UI/UX coupled with tracking and environmental mapping technologies and methodologies to deliver a natural and compelling end user experience.
The SDK is designed to allow developers to begin creating AR content which runs on our glasses as efficiently as possible. In addition, we strive to keep the SDK as flexible as possible, so that end users are able to tailor their development to their particular application.
At the core of the IMMY SDK is a native library which controls the basic functionality of the headset. This includes control of the display’s brightness, format, and power state, control of the headset’s variable opacity coating, audio volume control, and several additional features, such as display mute.
As part of IMMYs software package, we also provide developers with an API for accessing the various sensors mounted on the headset. The headset will be equipped with multiple image sensors, an orientation sensor, microphones, and an ambient light sensor. Beyond merely accessing the data from the sensors, IMMY offers a software package which operates on raw sensor data, yielding intelligent and fluid positioning of the headset in space. This allows developers to easily and accurately position virtual objects relative to the user. These native libraries are cross-platform, allowing basic control over the headset on Windows, Android, Mac, and Linux.
IMMY is a labor of love for our team. We believe that the future includes AR and VR, and we want to offer a way for the public to utilize this incredible technology. In pursuit of this goal, our team has already accomplished some amazing things.
Supplying the US Military – We have supplied the first 60 degree see-through AR HMD to the military. The initial program was F.I.T.E (Future Immersive Training Environment) for the US Joint Forces Command followed by the Augmented Immersive Team Training Program for the Office of Naval Research.
Production and Prototypes – We have developed pre-production prototypes and we have started delivering engineering samples to customers. We have initiated the manufacturing for the tooling of the optics component.
AR/VR Specialists Validation – We have had successful prototype demonstrations with AR/VR Modeling, Simulation and Training Experts from several enterprise and industrial Fortune 500 companies. They are looking forward to integrating IMMYs into their systems.
