Abstract

Display pre-distortion methods and apparatus for HMDs are disclosed. A disclosed example method includes determining a position of a pupil relative to a lens of the head-mounted display (HMD), determining, based on the determined position, a pre-distortion map for an image to be displayed on a display screen of the HMD, and displaying the image on the display screen of the HMD, wherein the image is modified by the pre-distortion map.

Background

Head-mounted displays include, among other things, a display that enables a wearer to be visually immersed in, for example, a three-dimensional (3D) virtual experience.

Summary

Display pre-distortion methods and apparatus for HMDs are disclosed. A disclosed example method includes determining a position of a pupil relative to a lens of the head-mounted display (HMD), determining, based on the determined position, a pre-distortion map for an image to be displayed on a display screen of the HMD associated with the pupil, and displaying the image on the display screen of the HMD, wherein the image is modified by the pre-distortion map.

A disclosed example HMD includes a lens, an eye tracker to determine a position of a pupil relative to the lens, a processor programmed to determine, based on the determined position, a pre-distortion map for an image to be displayed on a display screen associated with the HMD and with the pupil, and a display to display the image on the display screen associated with the HMD, wherein the image is modified by the pre-distortion map.

A disclosed example non-transitory machine-readable media stores machine-readable instructions that, when executed, cause a machine to at least determine a position of a pupil relative to a lens of the head-mounted display (HMD), determine, based on the determined position, a pre-distortion map for an image to be displayed on a display screen of the HMD associated with the pupil, and display the image on the display screen of the HMD, wherein the image is modified by the pre-distortion map.
