Meta glasses, or AR smart glasses are futuristic pieces of technology. They add extra information, 3D/4D images and animations or videos to a user’s actual world scenario. This is done by syncing computer-generated information to real-world situations. The meta/AR glasses user can control or manipulate this process.
Types of AR/Meta Glasses
Heads Up Displays:
These glasses have transparent displays which lets the user visualize the data in front of them. They are also used to find routes, highlight locations, message with similar devices, and access 3D videos and animations.
One of the prime examples of Holographic displays is Microsoft’s HoloLens. AR glasses that comprise this technology combine 3D holograms, which act as an overlay on the real world. This enables the user to experience a mixed reality world. Using light diffractions, the hologram image can be produced.
Examples Of Meta/AR Glasses
Epson Moverio BT-300
The Epson Moverio BT-300 has a 23 degrees angle of view and a full HD resolution. The virtual screen size is over 80″ with 24-bit color reproduction. Furthermore, the meta glasses have five different sensors and a 5 million pixel camera. The device further incorporates 2 GB RAM and a storage of 16 GB. Battery timing is 6 hours, and the glasses’ weight is 120g.
Google Glass Enterprise Edition 2
Google glasses are trending in the industry, and for a good reason. It has 720p video support along with an 80 degrees field of view. Moreover, they assist meta/AR glasses with GPS service and a Wi-Fi connectivity feature. One of the best features of this augmented reality tool is the voice command accessibility and a Qualcomm Snapdragon XR1 710 processor chip. It ensures smooth functioning and helps the user experience a lag-free metaverse.
How Do Meta/AR Glasses Work?
We can divide the working of AR glasses into four different phases; we will discuss them down below:
- The augmented reality tech captures its surroundings through a smartphone camera or an HMD.
- Next, the technology sensors use the captured surroundings to identify overlays within the environment. They do so by making good use of infrared systems, sensors and GPS, which act as trackers.
- After detecting the overlay point, the augmented reality system requests further defined content. It helps the system think of every conceivable solution to a problem or query.
- However, when you obtain the content, the AR system creates a whole new image consisting of the real-world data and the pre-requested content.
Now That’s a Wrap
