Researchers Develop Method to Boost Contrast in VR Headsets by Lying to Your Eyes

A team of researchers from Cambridge, Berkeley, MIT, and others has developed a novel method for boosting perceived contrast in VR headsets. The method exploits human stereo vision by intentionally mismatching elements of the view seen by each eye; the brain resolves the conflict in a way that boosts perceived contrast, the researchers say.

In the latest round of VR headsets, most major headset makers have moved from OLED displays to LCD displays. The latter offers greater pixel density, a reduced screen door effect, and likely lower cost, with the biggest trade-off being in contrast ratio. While OLED displays
