Tomorrow’s Drivers G2 Test Tips for Newmarket and Markham Drivers

Tomorrow's Drivers in Newmarket helps G1 & G2 drivers overcome on-road anxieties & develop the confidence they need to drive any time, anywhere, at any place.

Cars can be replaced. People can’t. Those words might seem harsh, but when you’re talking about learning to drive, it’s a matter of life and death. And we take nothing lightly.”

— Shayraz A. Khan, CEO Tomorrow's Drivers

NEWMARKET, ON, CANADA, December 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — For over 10 years, Tomorrow's Drivers, a driving school in Newmarket and Markham, has been teaching students the knowledge of how to make good, confident driving decisions — no matter where they are, and no matter the time of their life. One inhibitor of road safety is anxiety, phobias, traumas or lack of confidence in on-road performance. These fears can contribute to unsafe driving behavior, which endangers the driver and others on the road.

In addition to core training, Tomorrow's Drivers instructors specialize in treating and curing anxieties and phobias about driving. This is a component of all their programs — ranging from their Ontario Ministry of Transportation-approved BDE training for beginner drivers with a G1 license (and even students who haven't yet applied for a G1), to refresher lessons to help drivers easily warm up for their G2 & G road tests.

Instructors analyze how emotions affect the driving student and focus on correcting deep-seated emotional and intellectual bad habits. The goal is to replace bad habits with positive habits in order to develop the emotional confidence of students and make them better drivers.

The symptoms of a phobia can range from mild feelings of apprehension and anxiety to a full-blown panic attack. Physical symptoms can include difficulty breathing, racing or pounding heart, chest pain or tightness, trembling or shaking, feeling dizzy or light-headed, a churning stomach, hot or cold flashes, tingling sensations, or sweating. Sufferers may also experience a range of emotional symptoms such as feeling overwhelming anxiety or panic or feeling an intense need to escape a situation.

People are not born with fears and phobias; instead, these reactions are imprinted in the mind as a learned response from previous negative or traumatic experiences. A driving anxiety could stem from having been in a road accident, witnessing an accident, or being involved in a road rage incident.

​The experienced, MTO-licensed instructors at Tomorrow's Drivers work with the part of the mind that harbours fears and phobias. Phobia therapy has proven to be extremely effective, and people tend to see results very quickly. By helping drivers replace a negative behavior pattern with a positive pattern, instructors empower students to be more relaxed and maintain focus and control while driving.

Whether the student has a G1 license, G2 license, or a full license, Tomorrow's Drivers focuses on only one ultimate goal: confidence on the road. It is not sufficient to train only for the road tests, which are easy to pass. The key focus at Tomorrow's Drivers is to fully immerse students in learning the life-saving skills necessary to drive in any situation they may encounter. With these skills mastered, students can be safe and confident drivers.

Driving is one of the most important life skills any person needs to go places; if they fail to have the know-how and confidence to drive after passing their G, not only can it be difficult for them to get where they want — it can put their life even more on the line. That's why it's vital to get the proper driver education, and that's just what Tomorrow's Drivers provides.

PARIS, FRANCE, December 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Monday, December 31, 2019, Resistance units posted banners carrying pictures and messages of Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, and Mr. Massoud Rajavi, the Leader of the Iranian Resistance, in different parts of Tehran, including Qoddousi, Qasr, Khajeh Nassir Tousi and Sabalan streets, as well as in Qods City.

The banners read, “Overthrow of the anti-human enemy is certain,” “Khamenei and Rouhani must face justice for crime against humanity,” “Destruction of theocracy’s rule of oppression and injustice is close” and “Resistance units open the path and serve as guides for the rebellious, defiant generation.”

In another development, this morning, defiant youth torched the paramilitary Bassij bases in Tehran, Karaj and Iranshahr, as well as a regime seminary in Tehran. In Mahshahr, Khamenei’s picture was set ablaze.

Yesterday, defiant youth also targeted the IRGC’s Khatam ol-Anbiya Construction Headquarters in Tehran. Today, the mullahs’ regime confirmed the attack, while trying to down play the assault to minimize its impact on the morale of its forces and agents. Quoting an “informed source,” the state-run Asr-e Khabar wrote, “Early morning yesterday, an unidentified man riding on a motorcycle threw a hand-grenade at the building… Given the available videos, his identity is under investigation.”

Students Faith Diversity Tolerance

Students Faith Diversity Tolerance

Teachers are playing a vital role in this experience. Through VRXOne's ongoing 'Tolerance Program' the students are embarking on the discovery of enticing cultural experiences. ”

— Immersive Learning Expert

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, December 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Establishing themselves as a vibrant, progressive society, the Middle East has laid special emphasis on equitable quality education and lifelong learning opportunities. The leaders here understand that citizen participation and accountability in futuristic progress can be enhanced through a qualitative improvement in the education system. Consequently, the Middle East has become a flagbearer of innovation in education. Virtual Reality remains at the helm of these progressions, and it is being exhaustively deployed in schools.

Virtual Reality is also an active accomplice to spreading the UAE's message for tolerance, peaceful coexistence, and cultural awareness. The country is celebrating 2019 as the 'Year of Tolerance'. The Emiratis are showing the world how a progressive society like theirs, furthers a modern collaborative approach while staying in touch with its ethnicity.

In the last couple of years, many schools introduced VR to create a new learning environment alongside creating a culture of innovation and inquisitiveness. Educators switched to VR since it is an accessible way of involving the students in lessons while giving them access to the practical implementation of their learning. It has already been established that practical learning is the most effective method for student engagement. But the constraints of physical boundaries, investment, and resources limit its mainstreaming. This is where immersive learning techniques like Virtual Reality step up.

VR JOURNEY TO EXPLORE THE CULTURES OF THE WORLD

Interestingly, students and teachers are playing a vital role in this experience. Through VRXOne's ongoing 'Tolerance Program' the students are embarking on the discovery of enticing cultural experiences.

With expeditions to monuments that are a thousand years old like the Egyptian Pyramids, or to exploratory sites and museums at distant places, the students enrich themselves with inter-cultural wisdom. The virtual reality expeditions also allow students to empathize and experience how the kids in third world countries like Africa go to school and study. To establish friendlier relations within communities and strengthen the values of harmony, there are field trips through which students enjoy festivals of the world. It is such journeys that make us believe that the world is one big family. Through these expeditions, students realize the importance of acting collectively and individually, with complete transparency, consistency and fairness.

LEARN BASICS ABOUT RELIGIONS AND BELIEFS IN VR

Festivities and celebrations bring individuals closer. It is a pure delight to be a part of unique ceremonies; streets and towns adorned with flags, pictures, banners, and decorations. The world today is moving towards establishing a tolerant, co-existing society and the Pope's recent visit to the UAE is the one historic moment that has us propelled in the right direction. UAE is, indeed, an epitome of harmonious living where communities share their joys.

Thanks to Virtual Reality, children of the Middle East are now also well-acquainted with unique rituals of the world and learn to respect their differences gracefully. From visualizing the fun and frolic of Diwali to being a part of the Halloween amusements, everything is near to reality. For the non-muslim users of Virtual Reality, it is now more accessible than ever to understand the Islamic faith and experience the festivals like Eid through immersive visuals.

WHY STUDENTS LOVE VR – IT IS FUN & MAKES THEM CONFIDENT

For students, the VR class is a delightful time when they’re en route to their favorite voyage. When asked, a student from…. school explains his experience of using Virtual Reality.
“Virtual Reality makes me feel involved in the environment like I am a part of it. It’s like being featured in a game. I was struggling with concepts like the anatomy of the nervous system and muscular system. With Virtual Reality, it became easy to view these lessons.”, says a student of GEMS Education, Dubai.
As becomes conclusive, many students view VR as a game. And it is rightly so!
Virtual Reality is an improvised version of practical learning. Additionally, the fact that it is interactive and fun makes it all the more attractive to students. It is also much more accessible, scalable, immersive and affordable with a one-time investment.

Introducing Virtual Reality in regional schools has been a commendable transformation. But there are some places where VR lessons are even more meaningful. These are the regions where people cannot afford quality education. For many of these students, visiting places like Wonders of the World is a far-fetched dream.
The good news is that many of these students have realized this dream through Virtual Reality. While students of the region experienced VR Expeditions with the leading immersive learning program – VRXOne, many of the underprivileged students also tried their hands on the technology. Amongst these were some students who overcame the shackles of physical and mental disabilities to experience distraction-free learning.

While 2018 was an important period for maturation and mainstreaming of Virtual Reality in the classroom, 2019 is the year for greater strides.

Immersive education counters the systematic barriers that impede the application of effective education strategy in Nigeria and opens up new horizons for enabling sustained access to quality education”

— Dr. Sana Farid ( CEO & Co-Founder ) Munfarid – Mulhimat – VRXOne

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, December 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — VRXONE: INTRODUCTION TO THE HOTTEST IMMERSIVE EDUCATION PROGRAM

VRXOne is a state-of-the-art Immersive Education Program created by Munfarid, an innovation firm specializing in Artificial Intelligence (Ai), Virtual Reality (VR), and Augmented Reality (AR). This program targets K-12, higher education, non-formal education, and even special education requirements.
The primary objective is to facilitate training, learning, and skill development across various industries. Immersive education includes the incorporation of immersive and creative technologies to impart high-quality education – that adds real value in terms of increased engagement, enhanced knowledge retention, and eventually better results.
The prospect of cutting-edge, customizable solutions tailored for specific training environments is exceptionally efficient and effective. The onset of technology has its pros and cons. While access to specialized information has increased, distractions are on the rise too. VRXOne’s Immersive Education Program helps raise the bar on classroom learning and consequently brings back lost attention to classrooms.
The bottom line is that Immersive learning presents a medium that makes learning an enjoyable process, rather than a cumbersome one. The ingenious experiences help students understand intricate concepts easily and also promote the practical industry-level applications of theoretical knowledge.

SPECIFIC INSTANCES OF THE USEFULNESS OF IMMERSIVE LEARNING

1. BRINGING LESSONS TO LIFE WITH GOOGLE EXPEDITIONS

Google set out to make the impossible possible: Assimilate all the world's information and present it on a single platform. Google Expeditions is the result. This project successfully impacted the lives of over 8 million students.

Expeditions aid teachers teach better by spiking curiosity in students about lessons that are otherwise perceived as boring.

The ambition is to leverage this groundwork that Google has laid for the future of education. The aim is to make Google Expedition accessible to millions of students by providing a comprehensive program in classrooms. And has successfully reached the dream figure of 1,000,000 VR expeditions for students in the Middle East.

“VRXOne equips learning with the scorching power of VRAR and rich in value content curated by the leading scholars.”

As VRXOne is the official Google Expeditions partner (in the regions of the Middle East, Africa, and the Sub Continent), this premium and copyrighted content that Google offers is now provided as a first-hand experience to a myriad of schools. Another fascinating feature is the ability to create virtual field trips wherein students can get transported to all kinds of new locations for learning and exploration – be it the Himalayas or the coronary artery of the human heart.

2. TARGETING SPECIAL EDUCATION NEEDS: EVERYBODY DESERVES PREMIUM EDUCATION

Students with intellectual or cognitive disabilities often struggle with communication, focus, and concentration. Fortunately, Immersive Learning is here to turn the tables around.
VR helps create safe environments for students with special needs to improve instrumental motor and intellectual skills. This is the most noteworthy capability of Immersive Learning: Make education accessible to everybody willing to learn.

“The onset of Virtual Reality (VR) means that high-quality education is no longer a luxury that students with special needs can only crave after.”

All in all, VR helps special students to focus on individual abilities, strengths, and learning preferences that would be otherwise be hindered in the case of conventional educational systems. The result is a surge in self-confidence and self-esteem – both of which tend to take a hit when students feel bogged down by their disabilities.
Moreover, the happiness that these students feel thanks to the intervention of VR is just indescribable. What once seemed impossible is now very much possible through 4IR technology like Extended Reality.

3. SPACE VIRTUAL TRAVEL TO MARS ISN’T A DREAM ANYMORE

Well, Immersive Learning helps conduct VR Field Trips to Mars: Something that still seems surreal but is possible. This makes the study of space and astrophysics so much more exciting and engaging. VRXOne joined hands UAE schools to host virtual reality trips to Space, including the Red Planet.

“The giant red planet of Mars is suddenly within grasp, thanks to the virtual reality stardom”

Additionally, VRXOne is also prepping up the young minds of UAE to get up to speed with the covetous Mars Mission featuring the Hope Probe set to reach orbit in 2021.

4. FOSTERING STUDENTS FOR THE BUZZING EXPO 2020

The Expo 2020 is the grand stage for all different kinds of scintillating technology, and VRXOne aims to increase the exposure of Dubai students to connect better with millions of students worldwide.
Consequently, students will plan VR based journeys to better appreciate the essence of the massive technology extravaganza that Expo 2020 is all about.

IT’S TIME TO REACH OUT TO THE WORLD

VRXOne is aggressively expanding worldwide to help students and teachers harness the ground-breaking innovation of Immersive Learning.
The new target regions are interesting choices for a variety of reasons:

– India is home to the world’s third-largest education system and is a perfect platform to pitch the revolutionizing technology of Immersive Learning and popularize it.
– Egypt welcomes technological advancements into their schooling system. Interestingly, the demand for education is impressive due to the steady population growth. This country has regularly acknowledged education as the sole means of economic and social mobility. Additionally, the culture of embracing change and wanting to evolve will undoubtedly foster the sophisticated onset of Immersive Learning.
– Oman places high emphasis on accessibility to education as all three levels of school are free of charge. This realization of the essence of education will definitely welcome Immersive Learning to improve the teaching and learning efficiencies of schools.
– Pakistan’s constitution has a unique law that provides free and compulsory education to all children between the ages of 5-16 years. This nation is consistently endeavoring to achieve greater success in the education frontier. Spreading awareness about the potential of Immersive Learning could define a whole new perspective to education.

The underlying objective behind this expansion is subtle and crisp: Educate educators to improve the learning experience using immersive learning.

“The geographical expansion to other countries of the Middle East and prominent countries of Asia is bound to exponentially increase the popularity of XR in the field of education.”

This isn’t the first expansion opportunity that VRXOne has had.

Here’s Dr. Sana Farid on the expansion to Nigeria earlier this year: “Immersive education counters the systematic barriers that impede the application of effective education strategy in Nigeria and opens up new horizons for enabling sustained access to quality education."

Nigeria faces an acute shortage of teaching workforce, and VRXOne looks to expand training and empowerment opportunities for the teachers in Nigeria.

IMMERSIVE LEARNING: A DISRUPTIVE EQUALIZER FOR EDUCATION

The benefits of Immersive Learning are immense, and the consequent impact on the education system is magnificent, not to mention making education accessible to slum schools and refugee schools.

Students are learning and assimilating complex concepts with ease. Moreover, when students combine their learning potential by connecting with other participants of Immersive Learning platforms, great value is added to everybody.

The future is here in the form of Immersive Education, and this is certainly a giant stride towards ensuring Education Equality.

The round-the-world expedition Meridian will pursue the global goals in African uncharted countries, Antarctica and more

Meridian Expedition Global Goals Route Africa Antarctica Americas Arctic Europe

Meridian Expedition Route

The Meridian Expedition Logo

The round-the-world expedition Meridian will show sustainability development and environment situation in uncharted countries pursuing the global goals 2030

COPENHAGEN, DENMARK, December 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In January 2020 four-year round-the-world ethnographic expedition "Meridian" will start in Africa, going vertically – along the meridian via polar regions, promoting global goals, local sustainable development projects and informing about environment situation.

An Meridian expedition will highlight not only activists, but specialists, scientists and students already implementing projects in the field of sustainable development in different countries (waste processing and secondary raw materials, clean water, transport infrastructure, access to medical services, economic inequality, climate change). A team of three will explore countries along the meridian (between 0° -30° and 90° -60°) through Africa, Antarctica, South, Central, North America, the Arctic and Europe – a total of 38 countries. In order to ensure a detailed, thorough and accurate account of the expedition it is necessary to spend a minimum of one month in each country. The approximate duration of the entire expedition is estimated to be 4 years.
One of the outstanding features of such an itinerary is the opportunity to visit the polar regions – Antarctica and the Arctic, to highlight the activities of scientific researchers there.

The work of universities, scientific communities and researchers, enterprises and projects in the field of sustainable development of different countries –
the Meridian Expedition will show you that the world is actively developing and that the global processes of change are already happening everywhere, in all corners of the world, breaking the stereotypes about the division of countries into “developing "and" developed".

Through contact with local populations, the Meridian Expedition intends to be an “eye-opener” for those who want to see a country's true colours. The destinations will range from capitals and large cities to increasingly rural towns to paint a complete picture. Every country has an unique image and the expedition will share them to build knowledge, dissolve stereotypes, and inspire compassion though portrayal of the development and the clever enthusiasts.

The basic concepts of the expedition: a minimum use of air travel, active use of public transport; exploration of distant, non-tourist regions; refraining from politics, both local and global; creation of media materials that can be afterwards used for educational purposes in different countries.
In addition to popularizing science in general, the expedition seeks to establish and deepen the dialogue between scientific communities, universities, students and teachers of different countries.
The expedition will be conducted in collaboration with Danish and Canadian companies in the field of sustainable development, information and analytical support of African universities as well as support from international polar researchers.

The expedition starts in January 2020 in Algeria. The first year of the expedition will be held in Africa. The intended route along the continent is Algeria, Niger, Nigeria, Cameroon, Gabon, Republic of Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Angola, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, South Africa.

Ophthalmologist Dr. Mark Fleckner Reveals What Autoimmune Disorders Cause Eye Problems

Dr. Mark Fleckner

GARDEN CITY, NY, UNITED STATES, December 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Ophthalmologist Dr. Mark Fleckner says, “There are over 80 different autoimmune disorders, and some can cause eye problems.”

If you have an autoimmune disorder, then you are well aware of how it can change the body, nerves, and joints.

The eyes are also affected by these disorders and can pose a significant risk to your vision. Sadly, there are a lot of people who do not know many details about whether their eyes are undergoing changes.

One such immune disorder attacks and inflames the blood vessels in the back of the eye on the retina, which can affect vision. Yet, it typically manifests itself as a vascular problem. The name of this disorder is autoimmune retinopathy.

This underlines the importance of sticking to a routine of eye appointments. It is the most effective way to receive the proper treatments and medications. In doing so, you can lessen the impact the autoimmune disorder will have on your vision.

Dr. Mark Fleckner advises that everyone should get an eye screening, especially if they are at the age of 40 and above.

“No matter your age, if you start to experience changes, such as cloudiness, blurriness, pain, dryness, or light sensitivity, contact your local eye professional,” says Dr. Mark Fleckner.

Seeking help can change the course of a likely severe eye condition for the better.

Dr. Mark Fleckner is a highly-trained, board-certified ophthalmologist. He practices in New York and specializes in eye conditions that affect the retina.

Here is a list of some autoimmune disorders linked to vision health:

– Behcet disease
– Lupus
– Multiple sclerosis (MS)
– Psoriasis
– Reiter’s syndrome
– Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)
– Sjogren's Syndrome
– Graves’ disease
– Type 1 diabetes
– Ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease
– Uveitis

Another way autoimmune disorders can cause eye problems is from the medication needed to deal with these ailments. Some are known to affect eyesight as a side effect.

Talk to an ophthalmologist about your autoimmune disorder and the medications you are taking for it—it is vital to the health of your eyesight.

Learn about how the disorder you have might be impacting your eyes. Looking at the side effects medications you take can cause you to better understand if they are hurting your vision.

Regular eye appointments provide the opportunity to ask questions and get solutions before problems increase.

Skip Drish Tampa’s 3 Reasons to Enroll Your Kids in Horseback Riding Lessons

Skip Drish of Tampa

TAMPA, FL, UNITED STATES, December 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In this digital age, many kids find entertainment indoors more often than out, and getting kids engaged in physical activities can be a challenge. But one of the best ways to motivate many children and teens is with the help of an animal friend. Horse-riding, in particular, can be beneficial to kids of all ages. Skip Drish of Tampa, FL, an avid horseback rider, explains three reasons to consider enrolling your child in an equestrian program.

1. Boost physical health.
Although horses do most of the “work” in equestrian sporting events, from racing to rodeos, horseback riding also requires physical awareness and effort on the part of the rider. An isometric exercise, riding requires the rider to utilize the core muscles and inner thighs and pelvic muscles to maintain balance and stay upright in the saddle. Practicing this long-term can improve posture and spinal health as well as muscle tone. Advanced riders build even more strength from using the leg muscles to coordinate with the horse during complex or fast riding sessions.

2. Improve mental health.
Skip Drish noted mental health is of equal importance to physical health, and horse riding is a great way to reduce stress* and boost confidence. Research* indicates, in addition to reducing the stress hormone cortisol, riding a horse can also improve learning, memory, and problem-solving abilities, which could drive kids’ success in the classroom and beyond. Interacting with animals, including horses*, has also been shown to have emotional benefits and reduce anxiety and depression.

3. Cultivate character.
In 2006, the American Youth Horse Council sponsored a study that found participating in consistent horse riding activities can contribute to character development and life skills acquisition in kids and teens. One of the study’s co-authors, Ann Swinker, Ph.D., a professor of Animal Science at Penn State University said, “Handling, riding, and caring for a horse or pony can develop a host of positive traits in a child, including responsibility, accountability, patience, level-headedness, empathy, kindness, and self-discipline.”

iGlass 解决移动大屏的哪些核心痛点?
iGlass专注于解决移动大屏业的三大核心痛点: 1) 大屏显示质量不够高的问题, 2) 成本高、售价高的问题, 3) 使用门槛高、眩晕、压鼻子压脸不舒适, 只能用于短时间Demo, 不能长时间舒服使用的问题。

iGlass 移动大屏核心优势是什么?
是300寸超高显示质量大屏+超低成本+轻小舒适。在不占物理空间并保护隐私的同时,达到了和上万元昂贵激光投影大电视类似的清晰度和更高的对比度。

在当下,消费者已经被周围无处不在的高质量LCD大屏、激光投影大屏教育过了。作为下一代大屏显示方案,要与现有不可移动及不保护隐私的物理大屏竞争5G时代流媒体应用,需要如下要素:大很多的屏幕尺寸,好很多的隐私性,高很多的移动性,同时还需要在图像显示质量上过硬,能和昂贵的高质量激光投影电视竞争清晰度和更好对比度,才有在消费级市场上胜出的资格。

iGlass通过自主研发的全新一代自由曲面投影方案 + 处理器上的特定配合 + 软件端的低时延实时图像算法,用巴掌大的高光效简单架构实现了可以和昂贵激光投影大屏竞争的屏幕更大的头戴式移动大屏。比竞争方案高很多的极高清晰度巨屏体验+ 超低成本+ 能长时间使用是 iGlass的核心竞争力, 合适对成本敏感的消费级应用。

美国 iGlass 公司中文简介:
美国 iGlass 公司是一家位于美国硅谷的业界领先的下一代移动大屏显示方案公司。该公司致力于推广iGlass 5G时代基于全新一代自由曲面的半沉浸式超清晰移动大屏显示方案,把移动AR大屏和头戴式个人大屏电视产品普及,推向巨量的消费级市场。

iGlass 公司目前的核心产品是针对普通消费者的极高性价比超高显示质量(能匹配4K,及将来8K等高清光源) 300寸移动AR大屏,和类似激光投影效果超清晰300寸头戴移动大电视。

作为可以比拟上万元激光投影电视效果的下一代超高清移动大屏显示方案,iGlass的主要使用场景包括:
1)给5G手机终端提供看电影,玩游戏和移动办公多显示器大屏, 显著提升手机终端用户的体验,拓展手机终端的使用场景;

2)推动基于5G宽带和家庭WiFi无缝链接,提供家庭个人电视、投影仪、电影需求的超高清移动大屏的部分替代和使用场景补全;

3)基于5G宽带网,推动AR眼镜在飞机,高铁,大巴等城际交通载具中的集成应用,提升旅客旅途中的半沉浸式超清晰移动大屏娱乐体验。 在完全保护隐私的同时,开放式可感知环境;

4)推动基于5G宽带和自动驾驶电动汽车的结合,实现为自动驾驶电动车提供旅途中的乘客位和第二排开放式可感知环境的眼前大屏娱乐;
5)基于5G宽带网,推动半沉浸式大屏类产品在大学生宿舍,教育等广泛使用场景中普及;
6)未来用上更高清的8K屏后,给电脑、笔记本、平板电脑、手机等计算平台提供可移动并保护隐私的个人高质量移动大屏显示器。

iGlass公司产品具有如下三个特征: 超高成像质量300英寸大屏幕移动显示方案全球领先,产品定位精准,市场需求巨大。

iGlass 半沉浸式/开放式大屏显示方案主要用于两大类应用方向:
1) 半沉浸式:C端的半沉浸移动大屏用于直播、OTA等5G类流媒体应用,作为现有不可移动电视大屏在卧室内、车上等使用场景补全。以及给手机提供第二大屏,给飞机、高铁、汽车等空间有限的载具提供半沉浸式娱乐大屏等。半沉浸式头显如果用于游戏类应用,场景主要是手游、益智类等轻娱乐游戏场景,而不是需要全身心投入的重度游戏场景;

2)开放式(AR类,沉浸感更低):B端的需要看到环境的教育、医疗康复等开放式高附加值应用。

对这两大应用方向来说,类似近视眼镜(<30克)那样的极限的轻小并不是刚需。足够小足够轻,不压鼻子不压脸,兼容用户自己的近视眼镜,使用门槛低,能长时间舒适使用更重要。可负担性和可以与激光投影大屏电视竞争的超高显示质量是上面两大应用最内核的诉求,这也是iGlass 的核心竞争力和解决的主要市场痛点。

iGlass关注于可负担的超高显示质量高体验移动大屏核心技术本身,及各种大屏相关的直接应用。个人头戴式大电视是iGlass的第一大应用,AR VR只是iGlass开放式/半沉浸式移动大屏技术的一个应用方向。

商业模式: B to B to C
iGlass 方案和产品本质特征是既To B又To C,我们当前的落地重心是和B端C端的如手机大厂,家电巨头,游戏公司,航空公司,高铁,新能源车厂等联合推iGlass基础型号的各种变种。利润来源是NRE和销售分成。
