When inventor and Brigadier General Richard Freeman was first diagnosed with Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD), he had no idea how quickly his life would change.
Gen. Freeman, a fighter pilot who was accustomed to flying fighter jets two times the speed of sound and an entrepreneur who built a large computer company, was not prepared to sit on the sidelines during his golden years. Gen. Freeman looked to his sons, who were also inventors and entrepreneurs, and said, “we've got to figure out a way to fix this disease.”
His sons, however, were already contemplating a correction.
Their background in computers and video led them to create an AR/VR solution that would indeed "fix" their father's disease and also correct the devastating effects of AMD. Not long after the AR headset for low vision was prototyped, the brothers realized their invention would also serve many other markets.
Michael and Mitch Freeman invented streaming mobile video in the 1990s. We still use this technology over 20 years later when we make video calls over cellular networks. This innovation won the brothers two Emmy Awards and two Frost & Sullivan's Powering the Internet of Things awards. To date, Michael and Mitch have over 80 combined patents in six scientific fields.
