MicroOptical Corporation has released its SV-6 PC Viewer, the first eyewear-mounted display specifically designed for use with mobile personal computers. The SV-6 is a small, ultra-lightweight and highly ergonomic display that provides head-up, hands-free viewing of information from Tablets, laptops, wearable computers, ruggedised computers or other mobile computing devices with a VGA output.

The display has two key features that help the user take full advantage of the mobile Wi-Fi environment. It also functions as a second monitor utilising the Microsoft Multiple Monitors feature in Windows 2000 and XP. Users now have the advantage of two monitors: a primary monitor for standard information and the SV-6 head-up display for mission critical information, which is especially useful in untethered Wi-Fi applications. In addition, it will automatically format SVGA for the VGA viewer, eliminating the need to reset the resolution.

A combination of optics, electronics and a micro-display allows users to project the equivalent of a full-size screen in front of their eyes at a distance that is adjustable from 60 cm to 4.5 m. The virtual image created appears with minimal obstruction to vision so users can still focus on their work. The image is bright and usable both indoors and outdoors, further enhancing mobile Wi-Fi Tablet PC applications and the device also offers 18 bit colour resolution, making it well suitable for displaying web content and photographs, as well as output from standard computer applications.

Designed to free mobile workers from the constraints imposed by conventional displays screens, the display will be used in a variety of fields including medical procedures, finance, field force automation and military tasks.
