ActiveLook Tiny Head-Up Show Module for Smartglasses
Microoled is a provider of low-power, high-resolution OLED microdisplays that develops the ActiveLook smartglass platform. ActiveLook is a lightweight head-up display dedicated to sports connected eyewear and a CES 2021 Innovation Award winner.
The Microoled’s optical module is perfect for sports activity, thanks to its super lightweight, compact body and long battery life. Users can see their sports performance data in real-time, such as pace, speed, and distance, directly in the glasses.
The technology is currently embedded in the Julbo EVAD-1, another CES Innovation Award winner.
According to the company, at only 9 grams, Activelook is the lightest head-up display (HUD) module on the market, making the full glasses weigh only 35 grams. The closest competitor Everysight delivers its display technology at 90 grams.
The light and compact body makes it comfortable to wear glasses during high energy activities. The tiny body did not prevent the manufacturer from delivering a long battery life ranging from 12 to 30 hours. The compact design allows ActiveLook to be embedded in regular glasses as well.
Microoled recently secured an €8 million round of funding to help the OLED microdisplay manufacturer develop the ActiveLook technology. Founded in 2007 by Eric Marcellin-Dibon, CEO, and Gunther Haas, CTO, the company has experienced record growth in 2019, probably driven by the increasing global demand for OLED microdisplays.
