The Virtual Retinal Display (VRD) is a personal display device under development at the University of Washington's Human Interface Technology Laboratory in Seattle, Washington USA. The VRD scans light directly onto the viewer's retina. The viewer perceives a wide field of view image. Because the VRD scans light directly on the retina, the VRD is not a screen based technology. There are no liquid crystal displays or cathode ray tubes (CRTs) in the system.
The Human Interface Technology Laboratory (HITL) of the Washington Technology Center at the University of Washington is developing a novel display device in which a coherent light source is utilized to scan an image directly on the retina of the viewer's eye. A prototype of this device, the Virtual Retinal Display (VRD), has been developed and is being perfected under a four-year project.
