I didn't know they made LEDs that small. This is really cool.

An OLED TV would have 6 million (over 24 million for a 4k model...) Although this could maybe still be smaller than those.

At one time Sony was working on a direct-view LED (not OLED) TV where each subpixel was a separately-addressable LED. The image and color quality were absolutely amazing, and of course having nanosecond-level latency and perfect contrast without any backlight dimming shenanigans was wonderful.

As Ben himself states in the video, though, the big problem with trying to build a direct-view VR display this way is a lack of focus. You'd have to either directly focus each LED onto a small part of the retina, or just go straight to retinal implants. Neither really appeals to me all that much.

It doesn't really come across in this video but the guy is a giant and his eyes are like 3ft across.

I'm getting a definite Dr. Clayton Forrester vibe. I wonder if we could inspire him to wear a green lab coat?

maybe in the not-so-distant future?

Wots wrong with the capacitor that's already there, Ben? Does it need to have a special, engraved invitation?

LEDs in the eyes today! Flux Capacitors up the ass tomorrow!

Would you like to know more?

Don't put LEDs in your eyes.
Put them in there.
Do not put them in there.

:) I mentioned it before but this guy comes up on my linkedin a bunch (ostensibly because I can fix and maintain popcorn machines and splice film?) Dude's amazing.

It's not the same but I made a little Mr. Peanut monocle for old kitty cat's birthdays with an led pointer ( I wore it, not the cat and I held it up to my eye, never inserted it) but I was kind of curious and turned it around.

I am eager for the next logical step: proper optics to induce lasing. Because, hey, lasers from your eyes!

His eye is far too bloodshot to make me think this is safe.
