Magic Leap, HoloLens, and Lumus Resolution “Shootout” (ML1 review part 3)

Lumus, with what they call a “Light-guide Optical Element” (LOE), has a single waveguide that works on all colors. The thickness of their one LOE is similar to the stack of multiple (one per red, green, and blue) thinner waveguides on Hololens. They simply cut the waveguide’s entrance at an angle to get the light to enter (rather than use a color specific diffraction grating), and then they use a series of very specially designed partial mirrors to cause the light to exit.
