Companies To Invade Your Retinas As Soon As Next Year?

Engadget is one of many reporting that Brother and NEC both seem to have retina display technology in the works for release next year. Brother, at least, seems to have a fully functional prototype, while so far NEC is mostly talk. “Naturally, there are a few considerable limitations compared to more traditional displays, but the company’s as yet unnamed goggles do promise to beam an 800 x 600 image directly into your retina that’ll appear as a 10-centimeter wide image floating about one meter in front of them — which is certainly no small feat, even if it may not be the most practical one. Slightly less specific, but also working on a retina display of its own is NEC, which apparently hopes to incorporate a microphone into their display and use it as a real-time translation device that would quite literally display subtitles as you talk to someone.”
