The new augmented reality glasses technology is changing the way we see the world around us. By providing you with a clear view of the surrounding environment, these smart devices work like a magnifying glass which allows the viewer to see small details that would otherwise be blocked by darkness, rain or other visual obstacles. This type of technology was first tested back in 2020 by the University of Washington, which used a laser to project an image onto the surface of water.
Since then, developers have been hard at work refining and perfecting the new generation of augmented reality glasses. In addition to correcting vision problems caused by bad weather, the new technology can also help to improve eye care. In fact, some doctors are already using these glasses to treat patients with glaucoma and macular degeneration. This is in addition to the traditional methods such as Lasik eye surgery that can correct both the cost and appearance of a person’s eyes.
One application that is starting to take shape with augmented reality technology is teleconferencing. Teleconferencing has long been considered a luxury when it comes to business travel. However, with the introduction of a smart glasses such as those developed by Skype, web cams and video conferencing can be integrated into a single headset that makes use of augmented reality. By adding text to the video and switching between multiple views, it is now possible to conduct a real-time web conference without having to carry around a large amount of equipment. This feature could soon revolutionize business meetings all over the world.
In addition to business uses, Google is looking to apply augmented reality glasses to the public in another way. Google recently announced that they will be opening up a new project called Google Cardboard, which is designed to provide users with an easy way to view images on the web. Users will simply need to put on Google Glass, which will then produce a view of the webpage they are currently on.
It’s clear that augmented reality smart glasses are not going to be limited to commercial applications. We have already seen the growth of cell phone and tablet computers that incorporate visual perception. Now, with the development of a smart glasses, it is possible that the same technologies that have made laptops possible will find their way into the eyewear we wear every day. By bringing computers to the face, we may be able to eliminate much of the visual perception problems that surround current computer displays. With today’s computers, it’s possible to look up, down and to the left and right.
In addition to more efficient computer systems, Google is also looking to improve battery life with its new project. Currently, many of the top augmented reality glasses offer high-performance and long battery life. As we move into the future, there will likely be further improvements in this area. However, for now, we are likely to continue to see battery life that is adequate for typical use. The ability to eliminate the need for a laptop or computer would certainly make this type of glasses available to just about everyone.
When considering what type of display to use with your augmented reality smart glass, one important factor to keep in mind is the difference between enterprise edition and commercial edition. Enterprise editions are designed for business environments that require a large display. The images produced by these glasses may be displayed on company websites, employee resumes, presentations, or company news releases. On the other hand, the commercial edition are designed to be used by the general public and may contain different features.
In summary, the two different versions of Google’s smart ar technology glasses are not similar. The enterprise edition is geared toward larger display needs, while the commercial version is targeted at replacing the image source device that is typically used with a smartphone.
