Augmented Reality Glasses
Now a days, the Augmented Reality is on everyone’s lips and how big companies try to make it come to us. Thanks to the great advance that has taken place in smartphones, these companies have started to develop augmented reality glasses.
Google was the first company to make a prototype of augmented reality glasses, Project Glass, which allowed to see the time, the time, read or listen to messages with the vision glasses. But those glasses ended up being a failure, because their availability was very limited and had a very high price.
Nowadays Augmented Reality Glasses
Now this field is very different. Apple, Google and Microsoft are competing in the market of augmented reality and glasses. Although we will still have to wait a bit to buy the augmented reality glasses.
Both Apple and Google have released, each, two software (ARKit and ARCore) so that developers can work with it to take Apps and video games of augmented reality. But it is Apple who foresees that by 2020 their augmented reality glasses can go on the market.
Google, on the other hand, has Glass Enterprise, where its target audience is companies. With their augmented reality glasses you can make collaborative videos, task lists, receive notifications, scan QR codes and access photos and videos from the cloud
In the case of Microsoft, their Hololens glasses are more like virtual reality glasses, allowing to project holograms in the real world.
We still have to wait a bit to be able to use augmented reality glasses, but if we have, for example, an iPhone with iOS11 we can already enjoy the advantages of augmented reality in different Apps and augmented reality video games.
At ARDev, augmented and virtual reality development, we will remain attentive to everything that has to do with augmented reality glasses. Here we love the development of apps and games, so if you have an augmented or virtual reality project, get in touch with us.
