This field saw rapid progress in 2013 and appears set for imminent breakthroughs of scalable deployment of screenless display. Various companies have made significant breakthroughs in the field, including virtual reality headsets, bionic contact lenses, the development of mobile phones for the elderly and partially blind people, and hologram-like videos without the need for moving parts or glasses.
The first screen-less display that needs mentioning is Google Glass. Google Glass sits on the face like a pair of glasses, and on one eye it has a block of glass that allows you to see augmented reality. Images can be displayed right in front of your eye, as well as text and information about objects and places that are in front of you. This technology is only in its early stages, but definitely shows that screen-less displays will become a natural form of media consumption in the future.
Oculus Rift is another such tech that is already available to purchase. This is a headset that completely blocks out the real world, and instead replaces what you see with a pre-programmed image. This is the ultimate virtual reality machine that displays video and appropriate sounds, and uses its accelerometer to ensure that it feels totally real. If you move your head left, you will see the image that is to the left in the virtual reality scenario. This kind of technology has a plethora of uses, and today it is constantly being updated and improved to provide you with the very best in screenless display technology in the near future.
