Mary Lou was both an architect and an executive at Facebook / Oculus leading various efforts including a continued transformation of the virtual reality experience. She had the fundamental insight that a move to liquid crystal based systems from OLED was critical to consumer grade product and pushed it's introduction into Oculus Quest 2 - the best selling VR product ever made smashing all sales records in VR and delivering billions of dollars in revenue. She invented and created new breakthrough systems including these low-persistence, high frame rate, rich pixel density screens and optical systems. She also pioneered a form of augmented reality with true foveal vision >180 degree FOV, large eye-box, embedded eye-tracking and alpha-channel mixed reality ability blackening selectively part of the scene all in a sunglasses form factor for low cost high volume production. This was with a novel way to seamlessly tile pixel groups on the back of the retina as if the retina at software selective resolution per pixel-group. In addition she led Facebook's first foray into brain computer interfaces (prior to any other efforts).

Products (a sampler of notable products Mary Lou led)
One Laptop per Child (OLPC) XO Laptop - Mary Lou architected the lowest cost laptop ever made, lowest power laptop ever made, first with retinal display resolution, first with sunlight readability and color with video, first with mesh networking to connect the laptops within 3 kilometers, first with long life LiFePh battery technology, and with a completely novel architecture where the motherboard is off most of the time while the screen self refreshes. It was a breakthrough in rugged, droppable, water resistance with a new OS which enabled children to use the laptop without being able to read or write. etc. This spearheaded fastest growing consumer electronics category until that time ever recorded in the netbook which made $30B for for the laptop ecosystem, OLPC itself had more than a billion dollars in revenue.
Oculus Quest 2 Virtual Reality System - Mary Lou was the key architect of liquid crystal display & optics in this system that enabled mass high quality VR at low pricepoints. Her architectures leapfrogged expensive and bulky OLED+optics in performance and cost in the earlier Oculus systems to enable by far the best selling VR system of all time. This unit made billions of dollars in revenue and even prompted Facebook to change its name to Meta! She also invented and architected a suite of AR/MR (augmented reality and mixed reality) in a sunglasses format with 180+ degree of viewing R/L and up/down with variable fovea resolution, large eye box and built in eye tracking in a sleek sunglasses format that can go to market in the near term.
Google Glass - Mary Lou was a key pioneer of this architecture with MicroDisplay and Micro-Optical in the late 1990s with an identical optical and display architecture to Google Glass 15 years early! At Google she oversaw technology directions for the entire program for Sergey Brin.
MicroDisplay Liquid Crystal on Silicon ASICS and SDks - Pioneered this set of 22 LCOS units, with 4 controllers, 2 contrast couplers, 5 SDKs that enabled a generation of early virtual reality, augmented reality systems, Info systems (like Google Glass but in the 90s), smart phones, wrist watch videos, flat screen large area screens for televisions and monitors and pico-projectors. First to achieve production on LCOS world-wide in the late 1990s enabling the first true wearables with high quality displays in them running on not much of a battery.
Pixel Qi array of low power sunlight readable screens with color and video. Mary Lou invented and brought to mass production an array of breakthrough screens that went into laptops, tablets and smartphones from 2009-2014. These all had color, video, sunlight readability, well documented high fidelity text reliability, and delivered extreme low power and long battery life. They shipped into a few dozen different devices with different box manufacturers prior to Google acquiring the assets.
