Future: Micro Displays In Your Eyeware.
Possibly for the first time, spectacle wearers may be at a strategic advantage as North acquired all of Intel’s Vault AR patents. The company aims to build and launch, in the near future, smart AR glasses that are incredibly light and indistinguishable from regular glasses. They’re stylish (and look nothing like the abomination that was Google Glass), and come with a module built into the side of the glasses (the stem) that projects an image on your spectacle lens and uses the glass of your eyewear to reflect that image directly onto your retina. The image is seen by you, the wearer alone, and more importantly, it can be focus-calibrated according to your eye-power.(Optical store midtown 10065)
Intel has been struggling to get the technology off the bench, but North’s acquisition of its research and its patents may just mean that we, the spectacle wearers, will have AR-enabled HUD eyewear very soon, that may make taking the smartphone out of our pocket an entirely unnecessary activity. The laser projection module can tell you the time, share notifications, even let you browse maps or know who’s calling, and North’s experiments with their own ‘Focal’ series of AR glasses even came with a ring that let you browse through and control your content, as well as Alexa, so you could give commands to your smart-glasses… and while this is an incredible breakthrough, the fact that North’s glasses still look like normal, off-the-shelf prescription eyewear is extremely noteworthy.(Optical store midtown 10065)
It demonstrates an acknowledgment that wearable innovation must fit in with the measures of design, on the off chance that it is to see the sunlight of mass acknowledgment. Me, I’m happy that eyewear (something I cried about and abhorred as a child) is venturing into an unbelievable, ground-breaking future, and most likely whenever somebody calls me ‘four eyes’, I may very well have the capacity to google a dreadful rebound without them taking note!
