XPANCEO announces AR holographic lens testing system

XPANCEO, a deep tech company that is developing smart contact lenses with XR and health monitoring features, has this week announced a successful proof of concept for what is says is the world’s first augmented reality (AR) holographic lens testing system.

The company believes that this development is a significant advancement in transitioning from devices like the Apple Vision Pro and Meta Quest 3 to XR smart contact lenses. XPANCEO sees these lenses as the future of computing.

The holographic lens testing system allows the replication of AR experiences in diverse contexts such as sports, gaming, and navigation, enabling safe immediate tests of holographic optical elements without the necessity for human trials.

Dr. Valentyn S. Volkov, co-founder of XPANCEO, expressed that their main priority this year is to create new prototypes and improve the ones they already have. Therefore, the introduction of an optic testing system is a crucial step towards achieving their goal of developing the first all-in-one XR smart contact lenses.

Dr. Volkov added, “This system will allow XR industry players to evaluate parameters such as the field of view, the brightness of a virtual image, the gradient of intensity across the field, changes in image contrast due to different weather conditions, and more.”

XPANCEO is optimistic that its most recent testing solution will accelerate the development of its smart contact lenses, leading to increased growth in the market for these innovative lenses.

The company mentioned that there is currently another AR/VR testing solution available in the market that provides similar functionality to their recently announced testing system. However, this alternative solution only assesses 30% of the essential parameters. Therefore, XPANCEO’s new setup has added value in objectively evaluating lens prototypes, ensuring they meet requirements before clinical trials and market release.

The testing setup from XPANCEO will be able to evaluate:

  • Field of View
  • The brightness of the virtual image (based on either the projector’s brightness or hologram’s DLE);
  • Contrast is a measure that indicates the relationship between the intensity of the green color in the image and the background.
  • The gradient of intensity across the field (digital image processing)
  • Line and image sharpness
  • The permissible angle of inclination of a micro projector
  • Modifications in the level of image contrast under different weather conditions.
