Bernard Kress has been involved in AR,VR and MR technology for the past decade, specifically focusing on hardware issues such as optics, optical architectures and display technologies as well as optical sensors (depth mapping, head and eye tracking, gesture sensing).
Bernard published various books and book chapters, authored more than 100 papers on these topics and holds 70+ international patents on related technologies. He has been involved in the Google Glass project at Google X Labs since its infancy in 2010, as its Principal Optical Architect, and later joined the HoloLens Team at Microsoft in 2015 as its Partner Optical Architect.
He is also a board member and fellow of the SPIE, and conference chair for various SPIE and OSA conferences related to AR, VR, MR and digital optical technologies.
Mixed Reality (MR) will revolutionize the way we work, communicate, learn, shop, and get entertained.
This said, there are many challenges paving the way towards an MR hardware architecture that would allow for mass adoption outside the enterprise world. Comfort and immersion are two key MR experience pillars, comfort being declined along wearable, visual and social aspects, and immersion as multi-sensory. Although the enterprise sector might have already well defined its own MR ROI strategy, it is quite different for the consumer sector, where hardware, human experience and use case still needs to be developed.
We show how such key MR pillars have led the path to HoloLens V2 display architecture choices and its dedication as an enterprise workhorse.
