'We're working with Tobii and other leading hardware, software and technology companies to make extraordinary technological leaps, such as foveated rendering, broadly available in the marketplace.'
Change detection might thus have been degraded in the dual-task conditions of Experiment 1 in part because the abbreviated fixation durations that obtained during conversation allowed too little time for the adequate encoding of foveated visual information and/or peripheral analysis of potential saccade targets.
Foveated Display will show high-resolution imagery where the eyes are looking at to give the user a clearer AR-enhanced view, then display low-resolution imagery where the user is not focusing on.
Thus the gaze-contingent aspect of such displays has also been referred to as "foveated" or "eye-slaved" and the multiresolutional aspect is often referred to as "variable resolution," "space variant," "area of interest," or "level of detail." When considered together, gaze-contingent multiresolutional displays have been referred to with various combinations of these terms or simply as "moving windows." Figure 1 shows examples of a short sequence of a viewer's gaze locations in an image and two types of multiresolutional images that might appear during a particular eye fixation.
According to the (http://appft1.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PG01&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=%2220190172399%22.PGNR.&OS=DN/20190172399&RS=DN/20190172399) US Patent and Trademark Office site , the new patent is simply named "Foveated Display" but holds many complex details about the new VR headset.
Qualcomm's standalone VR headset reference design based on Snapdragon 845 Mobile VR has some interesting new features such as foveated rendering, which combines graphics rendering with eye tracking to better gauge where the user is looking.
Another potential application can be foveated rendering which enables high-density displays to selectively choose areas of the screen to display images at higher resolution based on where the focus actually is on the display.
Note that the limited field of view with the HMD cannot account for participants' failure to detect the nuclear devices: The nuclear device was always presented within 15[degrees] of the target (tank or soldier), so the field of view was large enough that the nuclear devices we re in the field of view when a cued tank was foveated. Furthermore, we would have expected a reduction in nuclear device detection for both cued and uncued HMD trials - as noted, however, only the former was seen.
It will feature a technology called "foveated rendering," which sharpens the area of display in front of the user's eyes.
