WalkingCat got their hands on two concept videos featuring two amazing pairs of connected glasses that seem to have been imagined by Samsung: the Samsung Glasses Lite and the Samsung Glasses . Very promising concepts.
The future will be enhanced or it will not be. It's no secret, but many companies have embraced augmented reality over the past decade. Google was among the first to do this with Google Glass, but the idea was later picked up by many other giants. Like Bose, for example, or even Facebook.
The Samsung Glasses Lite are intended for rather general public uses
Apple, for its part, would work also on a device from this guy. Device whose launch would however not be planned for a few years and which could even be preceded by a virtual reality headset .
AR glasses by Samsung?
What about Samsung? The company hasn't announced anything concrete yet, but it's not completely silly to think they are also working on such a device. She is not the type to let a market develop without doing anything.
Or jusHowever, by digging through the corners of the web, WalkingCat managed to get their hands on two surprising videos, videos featuring devices designated as the Samsung Glasses Lite and the Samsung Glasses.
The first in question takes the form of a pair of glasses, glasses with a look quite close to what Snapchat offers. Large frames, opaque lenses, they are not devoid of charm despite their size, but this is obviously not what makes their interest.
The Glasse Lite indeed give pride of place to augmented reality and they are thus able to project various elements in front of their wearer's eyes, such as the screen of a DeX client, for example, a game or even a videoconference. The uses are numerous and fit into the layers of the Samsung ecosystem. The watch can also be controlled from the brand's connected watch.
DeX in your glasses
Glasses and Glasses Lite, products aimed at different uses
Better yet , these glasses are also equipped with a solar function so they can darken when the sun is there ... and also serve as video feedback for a drone.
The Samsung Glasses go even further. times, the intended uses seem more in line with the professional world.
The first part of the video therefore shows a user equipped with a pair of glasses with a look similar to that of the Glasses Lite, in the process of type on a virtual keyboard and look at a plan of a house. Not content with looking at this plan, he can even enlarge parts of its thanks to a simple movement performed in the air. Likewise, he can also spin parts of that shot so that he can examine it from all angles.
The glasses are not super sexy, but the permitted uses are very nice
The future by Samsung?
But this is not the only use shown by the video. A little further, the user receives a call, directly on glasses, and it is then his colleagues who appear around of him, in the form of holograms ... The fine team then takes place around the shot, a shot that the user suddenly enlarges to allow everyonet the world to watch.
Two quite different products from each other. If the concept remains the same, we feel that each pair of glasses targets a certain type of use.
As to whether these videos designate a concept or a real project in development, it is is a whole different story. As far as we are concerned, we would tend to opt for the first choice. Powering such a compact stand-alone product must be quite difficult.
