Here’s an idea:
What would be the pro’s/cons to using mirrors instead of lenses?
Mirrors are easier to work with and you can shape them any way you desire.
Mirrors absorb less light
Mirrors are less prone to distortion, provided that the surface they’re painted on in rigid enough. And distortion can be minimized by shaping the mirror painting surface.
There is no need for a sweet spot because the entire mirror is the sweet spot.
Mirrors are easier to move for focus and IPD.
Mirrors can be treated easier for anti-glare, blue and red light filter, etc…
The front of the headset would be lighter by placing the OLED panels towards the back, front, side, w/e.
Easier to implement a mirror using smaller (tiny) mirrors that can be moved back and forth to enable multi-focus scenes.
Easier to manufacture,
The OLED screens can’t be in front of the face.
More prone to scratching and breaking upon impact.
The silver reflective paint may flake over time.
Anyone else has an idea?
