This talk will introduce the Oz Vision project, an early-stage project that seeks to build a new type of color display based on scanning a laser over the human retina at the cellular level, to create perceptions of new colors impossible to see in the real world, to treat color blindness, and to enable a person to perceive higher dimensional color, e.g. 5D with IR and UV over RGB.
