Recently, there have been many major events in the AR industry. Many AR companies have won the favor of capital and won more funds for the company’s progress. If you have paid attention to AR, you would find that companies that had recently raised funds have their own AR smart glasses hardware R&D, and products. Of course, here what we are going to talk about is not about financing, but about how AR smart glasses can be taken into an application.
Why have AR smart glasses been emphasized? Because a large number of people still feel that AR smart glasses are AR technology. If AR smart glasses are to be truly applied, they must be combined with AR technology. In fact, this is not the case. To truly apply AR smart glasses, you must not only rely on AR technology but focus on the value of smart glasses themselves. Because AR technology cannot really be applied in many fields at present, it will make the project float in the air. AR smart glasses have their own value, which can be used in different fields such as manufacturing, medical area, education, augmented reality for maintenance and so on.
1. What are AR smart eyes glasses?
AR smart glasses are firstly a piece of smart terminal hardware, which is a carrier of various application technologies. Just like a mobile phone, it is only a hardware carrier. If you want to implement some applications on it, you can use its own characteristics to develop applications. But we all know that when the mobile phone appeared, its function was only to make calls and send text messages. With the emergence of 4G and the development of smartphones, there were various interesting applications, but they all made use of the value of the mobile phone itself, that is the convenience brought by the interaction of taking pictures and touch. Like the development of all smart hardware, the mobile phone could only make calls at the beginning, but you wanted to use it as a smartphone to surf the Internet, which is impossible. HTC is a negative example because, before the arrival of technology and content, all your good ideas can only float. For example, when the computer can only be used for office in the initial stage, you want to tie it with the Internet, games, and entertainment to promote it but ignore the value of its own data information processing. As a result, it can only be a concept and eventually cannot be developed.
The same is true for China AR glasses. It is just a piece of hardware. At this stage, if you want to take it into an application, you must consider its own value instead of binding some conceptual technology to hype it, which causes confusion and trouble for customers and cause the mistrust of the entire industry.
2. AR smart eyes glasses and AR technology
AR technology can be divided into two genres at present, one is recognition, the other is spatial modeling and real-time spatial positioning; the former is called AR recognition; the latter is called SLAM technology.
In fact, AR technology and AR smart glasses are not necessarily directly related, because AR technology can use mobile phones, computers, and tablets as carriers. Of course, smart wearable device carriers can also be used, and even smart glasses can be immersed by the characteristics of the near-eye display. Even the immersive near-eye display makes the smart glasses the best carrier of AR technology; but in terms of experience, the experience of any carrier will be better than AR smart glasses. Why?
Because the development of mobile phones, IPads, and computers has matured technologies, they are better than AR smart glasses in terms of resolution, display color, and operating stability. Especially when running some AR recognition technologies, it may perform stably and efficiently. The rendering of 3D images will show better results and bring a better sense of experience.
