Samsung imagines how its first AR glasses might look in these leaked concept videos – Circuit Breaker

Samsung has been toying with AR glasses for years, most lately trotting out a particularly primary set of image-projecting goggles on the CES 2020 stage, however I’ve by no means seen the corporate counsel it’d wish to construct an really bold augmented actuality wearable computing gadget — till maybe at the moment.

WalkingCat, a reasonably dependable supply of gadget leaks, has published two new concept videos that showcase a number of the enjoyable issues a pair of “Samsung Glasses Lite” may do, like projecting a large digital display the place you’ll be able to play your video games, letting you chill in your personal movie show, provide you with a large digital laptop monitor, hearth up an auto-dimming “sun shades mode,” or act as an instantaneous first-person-view display to your DJI drone, full with telemetry.

The second video reveals off the very comparable “Samsung AR Glasses” idea, although this time it’s letting the consumer “see” 3D digital objects seem in the true world, a visible that needs to be immediately acquainted to you when you’ve ever seen any of Microsoft’s HoloLens marketing.

In case you’ve by no means tried a Microsoft HoloLens or Magic Leap, although, it is best to know that actuality is an extended methods away from the visualizations you see right here. Right now’s waveguides, lasers, projectors and micromirror combos normally provide you with a reasonably small discipline of view with see-through AR glasses like these. In case you’re standing proper subsequent to a digital laptop monitor, you’d solely be capable to see a part of it at a time — the remaining could be out of your discipline of view.

To me, probably the most attention-grabbing a part of these movies is how Samsung imagines you’ll be utilizing a smartwatch to navigate the interfaces. Brief-term, that is perhaps extra reasonable than attempting to faucet on issues that don’t really exist or make midair gestures together with your fingers, and smartwatch management is a paradigm that different corporations engaged on AR headsets are little doubt contemplating. Apple has each a smartwatch and an AR headset in development, after all, and the Fb {hardware} division that’s constructing AR glasses is reportedly now working on a smartwatch, too.

Talking of Samsung and smartwatches, two identified leakers are now saying Samsung could return to Android for its subsequent smartwatch, as an alternative of its personal Tizen platform it’s used for watches for years now.
