Bright demos make colourful impressions

Among my favourite demos was the binocular version of the Lumus DK-40 displays (above). It showed some of the brightest and biggest images—a full-colour movie in smooth motion. Their secret sauce is a grating lens that reflects images from LCOS projectors. Across the way competitor Lab 1066 of Hastings, UK, showed a roughly similar technology.

The Zeiss VR One headset (below) using a Samsung S6 2K display showed a great VR demo of a live concert and AR demo of a museum piece. At $129, it is an easy add-on to a high-end smartphone sale, similar to Samsung's own Gear VR co-designed with Oculus.
