The manufacturer would therefore join Apple whose glasses could arrive sooner than expected . If the use and the concept may still seem a little vague today, more and more applications are using augmented reality such as trying on a pair of glasses, integrating a piece of furniture into an existing environment or even try makeup using Google.
A concept intended for individuals
In a first video, Samsung reveals a product rather designed for individuals. In an increasingly connected and increasingly mobile world, augmented reality glasses may seem obvious to manufacturers.
Having a large screen available in the field of vision in order to play a video game, watchwatch a movie or favorite series in any position, make video calls or just write an email using a wireless keyboard.
All apparently controllable by your connected watch to free your hands from your smartphone. This is the kind of custom Samsung imagines for glasses.
If you're more of an outdoor activity, Korean won't forget you. The glasses seem to have the ability to darken to adapt to the ambient light. They also give you a small virtual screen to enjoy a first person view when piloting a drone.
For now, this is only a concept presentation, no technical information or expected release date has filtered. We will therefore have to wait for a communication official for more information.
A concept intended for companies
The professionals are also not left out. If Lenovo plans glasses capable of replacing up to 5 screens In order to increase productivity and privacy in the workplace, Samsung seems to want to compete with Microsoft's HoloLens.
Of course, glasses are able to replace a computer screen, which can be convenient for people who want to work on a train or an airplane. Nevertheless, the emphasis in the presentation seems to be on the holographic projection and the ability to manipulate the projected objects directly by hand.
If the design seems similar to glasses for individuals, the equipment used will certainly be different, especially with front sensors capable of analyzing the environment as a Kinect would do.
Whether for 3D design or pPresenting a project to a client, holographic projection seems to have its place in the range of tools for professionals of all kinds.
The decade of 2020, the advent of augmented reality?
The decade of 2020 has barely begun and there are already more and more announcements around AR (Augmented Reality). In an interview, Mark Zuckerberg gives his point of view on the technology . In an increasingly connected world and with more and more dematerialized content, augmented reality seems to be a logical evolution in the way we consume digital.
Augmented reality glasses are more open than 'a smartphone and free from the hardware constraints of a physical device such as a television or a screen. They could become, in the more or less near future, a must-have device like our smartphones of todayui.
