Smart Glasses: Why is everyone drooling over it?

A game changer

We are living in a world of connectivity and innovation. Smart glasses are one interesting addition that technology has made in the realm of wearable devices. Its initial prototype that was produced in 2012 by Google was quite clunky and expensive. But the advancement in technology made it niftier and more useful, shoving us towards a digital-physical world. These smart glasses have become mainstay in various industrial sectors. In this article, we will discuss the major benefits and features of smart glasses and learn how it works. Let’s begin!

Features and Benefits

Smart glasses have evolved a lot with time, offering sleeker designs to users and enhancing their experience by combining Augmented Reality (AR). These AR glasses have several components including sensors, lens, display, camera, microphone and speakers. The display is fused with the lenses to provide the wearer with an incredible experience. They can view the digital content which is superimposed on the physical world surroundings. The embedded sensors and camera are used for object recognition and to control the gestures. Other features like speakers and microphones are used for audio output and voice control. Your AR glasses can also be synced with your smartphones with the help of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. This allows you to enjoy streaming services or use GPS to determine any location. 

Uses and Applications

Smart glasses provide you with real time stats regarding your health and fitness. You can keep a track of your daily footsteps or monitor your heart rate. Similarly, this gadget entertains users by taking them into an immersive world of gaming or streaming services (Netflix or Amazon Prime etc.) You can make calls, take photos, post anything on social media platforms and ping someone in a touchless way i.e. without clutching your phone. It can also be used for weather updates, navigation and directions, or to get a view of nearby spots. It has also improved the efficiency of various sectors. For example, retailers can get real time information related to the inventory while medical practitioners can access patient’s data. Even employees working in the manufacturing sector can receive incisive instructions which minimizes the chances of errors.

Finishing up

AR glasses are already transforming our interaction with the surrounding and the way we communicate and access information. With time many new and impressive features of smart glasses will come up i.e. smart designs, powerful processing ability and better battery life.
