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

WalkingCat, a reasonably dependable supply of gadget leaks, has published two new concept videos that exhibit a number of the enjoyable issues a pair of “Samsung Glasses Lite” may do, like projecting an enormous digital display the place you’ll be able to play your video games, letting you relax in your non-public movie show, provide you with an enormous digital laptop monitor, hearth up an auto-dimming “sunglasses mode,” or act as an instantaneous first-person-view display on 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 person “see” 3D digital objects seem in the true world, a visible that must be immediately acquainted to you should you’ve ever seen any of Microsoft’s HoloLens marketing.

In the event you’ve by no means tried a Microsoft HoloLens or Magic Leap, although, you must know that actuality is an extended methods away from the visualizations you see right here. At this time’s waveguides, lasers, projectors and micromirror combos normally provide you with a fairly small discipline of view with see-through AR glasses like these. In the event 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 may be extra life like than attempting to faucet on issues that don’t really exist or make midair gestures along with your fingers, and smartwatch management is a paradigm that different firms 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 recognized 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.
