  • Patent number: 10884263
    Abstract: A head-mounted display and an imaging apparatus for displaying image thereof are provided. The imaging apparatus includes a first display, a second display, and a first focus adjusting apparatus. The first display generates a first sub-image; wherein the first sub-image is located on a first imaging plane, and is then projected to the target system. The second display generates a second sub-image; wherein the second sub-image is located on a second imaging plane, and is then projected to the target system. The first focus adjusting apparatus is in front of the second display, and is used to adjust the position of the second imaging plane. The first imaging surface and a second imaging surface are overlapped or non-overlapped.

  • Patent number: 10852546
    Abstract: A head mounted display and a multiple depth imaging apparatus thereof are provided. The imaging apparatus includes a beam splitting device, a first display, a second display, a third display and a lens set. The beam splitting device has a first reflective surface, a second reflective surface and a transmissive surface. The first display projects a first image to the first reflective surface. The second display projects a second image to the transmissive surface. The third display projects a third image to the second reflective surface. The lens set is disposed between the beam splitting device and a target area. The first image, second image and third image are respectively imaging on a first imaging surface, a second imaging surface and a third imaging surface, and distances between the target area and the first, second and third imaging surfaces are different.
