This reminds me of when I was at @QualcommVenture and the @HoloLens came out in 2016. @sdesh & I conducted our own deep tech investigation on why the FOV of #AR wasn’t full-field, & came away with massive respect for what was accomplished by the @Microsoft team.

So ok thread 1/
We realized that the way #VR gets to full-frame FOV was by warping the lenses between your eyes and the display, “blowing up” the screen by wrapping it around your eyes. You can’t do that with #AR bc then you’d warp the actual world, making it unviewable

2/
So the commonly discussed “dream” of a single headset where you just “drop a black screen behind AR and you get VR” is very far away because the requirements of the two are not as similar as one would expect.
