Augmented Reality display technology allows the display of three dimensional (3D) information on any flat surface or in any direction. As of this writing, there is no known practical solution to the design of a display that will allow for fully integrated use of all the possible display elements. However, the display technology that is available today makes it possible for computer-aided design programs to make good quality 3D maps and display the same on a variety of display surfaces.
While the application of display technology has been around for a long time, it is only in the last few years that real advancements in this area have been made. Currently, augmented reality display technologies extend the range of vision to include text and graphics but still, the development of the best, widest-field-of view display solution still remains a challenge for even the most advanced optoelectronics engineers.
The biggest challenge when using augmented reality display technology to display information on a surface is not the type of display technology, it is the selection of the right display surface. This is why it is so important to consider not just the surface area of the display but also the design of the display surface itself when selecting the display surface.
The display surface must be designed in such a way that it allows for proper interaction with the viewer by the use of appropriate graphics and text. If an image or text is not properly aligned, the viewer can be distracted or even confused as to what the display is trying to convey.
The display surface must be carefully chosen so that the information is readable and easy to understand. This is especially important in a system where the information displayed has to be accessible to people with different physical skills. For example, someone who is visually impaired cannot easily interpret images displayed on a monitor in a way that would be useful to them.
One of the challenges that have been met by display technology is that a wide range of different types of display surfaces are required for various applications. This is one of the reasons why it is not yet possible to provide people with completely comprehensive user interfaces that include all types of displays.
In addition, the combination of display technologies must also be able to allow the display of multiple content at the same time. For example, a business owner may be able to have information about his company displayed on a large scale on one large display screen while displaying relevant information about a sales call on another screen.
Display technologies are not a magic solution for this, however. As long as there is a need to update the display surface, display technology can and will change to meet new and better needs.
One of the areas in which display technology is making improvements is by combining different types of displays on the same display surface. In many cases, this can be achieved by combining two or more screens into one display, or even one large screen that contains multiple smaller screens.
There are also certain display technologies that do not require a separate display surface, such as text-to-speech capabilities. These features are very helpful for use by users of visual impairments. Even in this case, there are still many questions that need to be answered in order for this technology to work successfully.
As previously mentioned, this type of display technology is not available for every display that is used to display information. In some instances, it can be a matter of a cost comparison between technologies to determine whether or not it is a feasible option.
It is also a matter of compatibility. A good display technology cannot always be used on every type of display surface. Depending on the surface to be used, different display technologies will be necessary.
