Immerse yourself in another world: Infrared LEDs from Osram make virtual and augmented reality applications even “more real”

Firefly SFH 4030 and SFH 4060 expands Osram’s photonics portfolio for eye-tracking systems

Virtual (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) applications will become more widespread in the coming years. They have long played a central role in areas far beyond classic gaming. Various global players have used these technologies for training purposes or integrated them firmly into their daily work processes. As these applications become part of our everyday lives, some users are developing feelings of discomfort and dizziness when the virtual and real perceptions do not match. Osram’s new Firefly SFH 4030 and SFH 4060 help to prevent these side effects by enabling state-of-the-art eye-tracking solutions that provide a targeted point of reference, allowing users to safely immerse in other worlds.

LED Secondary Optics Basics

This article first featured in RS DesignSpark. Source

An LED’s primary optic only tends to emit directional light at 120°, but this is not suitable for all applications, and therefore can cause the LED light to lack intensity over distance.

IGS R&D manager Raising Money for Muscular Dystrophy UK

Chris Landa-Font, our R&D manager is raising money for a wonderful cause – Muscular Dystrophy UK. Muscular Dystrophy UK is the charity bringing individuals, families and professionals together to beat muscle-wasting conditions. He has vowed to shave his beard off for this cause, as his daughter suffers with this very rare condition. So far Chris and his family have raised a fantastic £1000! Any donations, big or small, will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Chris: “I seem to have grown a rather long beard by mistake.  My son had a great idea that I should shave it off for charity and we all agreed.  My daughter has a very rare condition called Juvenile Dermatomyositis (It’s taken us 3 years to pronounce  this correctly) It’s a very little understood condition that affects 2-3 children per million.” Continue Reading »
