Samsung has been working on augmented reality glasses for years, but we didn’t know how the company sees such an ambitious wearable computing device – until today.
WalkingCat, a fairly reliable source, has posted two new concept videos that showcase some of the fun things Samsung Glasses Lite can do. For example, they can project a giant virtual screen on which to play, work on a PC, or enjoy watching a movie. It can also turn on the auto-dimming mode of sunglasses or act as a first-person view helmet for the drone.
The second video demonstrates a very similar concept to Samsung’s AR Glasses, although this time the device allows the user to “see” virtual digital objects in 3D, linked to their real world. That is, it is a kind of Microsoft HoloLens or Magic Leap. Modern reality, however, is far from the pictures in these videos: modern lasers and projectors give a rather small field of view with the help of such transparent AR glasses.
The most interesting part of these videos is how Samsung sees navigating and interacting with the glasses’ interface using smartwatches. In the short term, an interface like this can be more realistic than trying to click on virtual objects or make hand gestures in the air. Smartwatch control is a paradigm that other companies like Apple, Google, or Facebook are no doubt looking at when working on AR headsets.
