Session Paper Author(s)
28.1 OLEDs on Textile Substrates with Planarization and Encapsulation Using Multilayers for Wearable Displays Kyung Cheol Choi, KAIST, Daejeon, South Korea
ABSTRACT: OLEDs have been fabricated on textile substrates. The 3.5 dyads of aluminum oxide (Al2O3) – poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) multilayers were used for planarization and passivation. The fabricated device showed similar performances and cell images after 400 hours.
28.4 Wearable Display for Dynamic Spatial and Temporal Fashion Trends Wallen Mphepö, University of Sunderland, Sunderland, UK
ABSTRACT: The platform prototype showcased in this work is a smartphone app-controlled high-heel shoe that can match a user's outfit at the click of a button as well as housing some embedded sensors.
23.3 Quality of Augmented Information for Different Distances on See-Through Near-to-Eye Displays Toni Järvenpää, Nokia Research Center, Tampere, Finland
ABSTRACT: Binocular see-through near-to-eye displays can present virtual objects at different convergence distances. Matching the convergence distance of augmented visual information with the real object distance in order to create an illusion of mixed reality was studied. In the same experiment, the applicability of monocular augmentation was studied.
