Engadget said Qualcomm’s smart glasses technology has evolved significantly in a couple of years.
The company revealed the reference design for the Wireless AR Smart Viewer,
a next-generation pair of augmented reality glasses aimed at helping hardware partners build their own immersive glasses.
He points out for the site that the new pair of augmented reality glasses now connect wirelessly to a host computer, phone or CD,
and are 40 percent thinner despite packing the newer (if slightly outdated) Snapdragon XR2 system.
Add a balanced weight distribution and the machine should be much more comfortable than its predecessor,
even if it didn’t win any fashion awards.
Each eye gets a 1080p, 90Hz micro-OLED display which is said to eliminate motion blur.
You’ll also have full motion with six degrees of freedom thanks to three cameras (two monochrome and one color) as well as hand tracking with gesture recognition.
WiFi 6E and Bluetooth help switch data quickly while keeping the lag under 3ms between the glasses and the host device.
A few manufacturers have access to Qualcomm’s new augmented reality design,
and more of them should take their turn within the “coming months”. You wouldn’t buy these exact devices as a daily customer.
However, it could lead to a wave of next-gen glasses that you don’t mind wearing for gaming or work — even perhaps not as ambitious as some augmented reality projects.
