Simulated Reality – Merging 3D Physical and Virtual Worlds

Dimenco, a leader in light field display technology, introduced the concept of Simulated Reality (SR) technology one year ago at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Now at this year’s event the company has launched its 3D monitor with a Simulated Reality Development kit.

Simulated Reality is a complete platform with the potential to change the way users interact with screens. SR merges holographic imagery, surround sound and haptic feedback for a multisensory experience. Simulated Reality offers the possibility to open up a new world for interactive industrial 3D applications.

Dimenco is promoting its new 8K 3D display at CES 2020. The display supports Simulated Reality, which shows 3D images with depth without requiring users to wear goggles or glasses. Users can “feel” objects in Simulated Reality due to the integration of haptics tools. The display comes from a collaboration between Dimenco, Microsoft, and Ultraleap. The 3D display is the ultimate spatial desktop display and comes with the software development kit (SDK). Developers can seamlessly create SR applications using the Unreal engine and the specially developed Unity Editor and enables developers to easily port their existing 3D content.

Maarten Tobias, CEO of Dimenco, said: “While the market for immersive content is growing around the world, wearable headsets, glasses and controllers needed for virtual and augmented reality don’t provide the optimal and most natural experience which is hindering growth and adoption. We are dedicated to creating the interactive platform of the future – Our vision is Simulated Reality. Realism, social interactivity, immersion and AI can all be achieved through SR experiences, and we are enabling developers to start creating for SR now with our devkit.”

Ultimately, with Dimenco’s proprietary spatial technology, manufacturers of monitors, laptops, tablets, phones and other devices can incorporate SR visualization capability into their product lines with the first integrated products expected in early 2021.

With origins in Royal Philips Electronics, Dutch company Dimenco has been leading the spatial visualization market since 2010, The company mission is to push the boundaries to achieve the dream of simulated reality – one of the world’s biggest developments in 3D by uniting hardware, software and technology to deliver fast, rich and natural three-dimensional experiences – no wearables required. The company approach to the possibilities of spatial computing will result in totally new ways of interacting with displays that exceeds the expectations of the industry.
