Kopin & 3001 AD to bring 'Trimersion' binocular module

US largest mobile microdisplays manufacturer Kopin Corp announced that the virtual reality gaming developer 3001 AD, LLC has incorporated the BDM-230K into its Trimersion virtual reality system, which for the first time will bring virtual reality gaming to the Microsoft Xbox, Sony PlayStation and PCs. 3001 AD unveiled Trimersion last month at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), the world's largest gaming exposition.

Trimersion brings full immersion and 360-degree head tracking to home gaming, and is the only system to deliver high-quality, cross-platform virtual reality for this market. The Kopin BDM-230K, a complete binocular video subsystem, delivers crisp, full-color, QVGA-quality (320 x 240 resolution) video with a virtual image equivalent to a 35-inch display viewed from a seven-foot distance.

"For years, virtual reality game systems were prohibitively expensive, available only to high-end arcades and research facilities," said 3001 AD CEO Jimmy Barker. "Kopin's plug-and-play BDM-230K subsystem lets us concentrate on developing great virtual reality environments while letting Kopin take care of video delivery. With stereo sound and Kopin video in the Trimersion, viewers will no longer be playing games: they'll be living them."

Head-tracking capability lets gamers control key elements of their virtual environments, such as point of view and player position, with an intuitive turn of the head instead of a thumb or finger command. A non-tracking version of the Trimersion is available for players who prefer a mouse or hand control. Trimersion also lets gamers wield a pistol-style input device, rather than push buttons, to shoot within the game. Thousands of gamers, analysts and businesspeople thronged to the 3001 AD booth at E3, which took the form of an oversized Trimersion virtual reality helmet.
