On the heels of its $15 million fundraiser just a few months ago, Brelyon showed off its vision for what immersive visuals could look like. At CES in Las Vegas, we tried out the fully immersive 8K OLED display, which offers a VR headset-like experience without having to strap anything to your face.


“Brelyon Fusion allows light to be blended to scale the field of view in a new way that achieves multiples of resolution,” explained Barmak Heshmat, CEO and Founder of Brelyon in an interview with TechCrunch. “This type of new light field expansion innovation really allows us to think of light as pieces of LEGO blocks that can be built by computer to create a more immersive display.”

The technology is currently a prototype that won’t hit the market for a little while – the company thinks 3-4 years from now – but it’s deeply impressive nonetheless. The core technology is what the company calls Ultra Reality, using precise wavefront engineering to create a massive field of view with true contoured optical depth. The result is a display that completely surrounds your field of vision. It also adds spatial sound and uses a series of cameras to track your head position, adjusting what the screen displays accordingly for maximum immersion.

So, uh, who is it for?

“We see this as a parallel to a headset experience, without people having to put on a headset. Of course the enterprise market is an early adopter. They’re already buying some of our older models “Heshmat explains. “It will be fantastic for gamers, anyone who uses multi-monitor setups or wants to do something with headsets but doesn’t want to get up and dance around all the time. very immersive.

The company points out that the market has spent tens of billions of dollars buying VR headsets, but it believes immersion shouldn’t be synonymous with headsets.

“Tthere should be other solutions for people who don’t want to wear helmets, but still want to immerse themselves. What’s happening in the industry is that because helmets are becoming more mainstream, some of the elements that used to be used for helmets are now becoming cheaper,” says Heshmat. “This allows us to create what we call ‘optical displays’. They use a combination of optics and computer techniques to give you these virtual images without you having to wear glasses. We are the architect of these new display categories.
