Smart Glasses

In the not-too-distant future, we will probably have regular experiences in virtual, augmented or mixed reality: Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR) or Mixed Reality (MR). Of course, this includes smart glasses: electronic glasses that offer digital content via screens in front of your eyes and via speakers (in the temples) at your ears.  

This 21st century technological revolution in optics extends the function of previous visual aids by combining them with cutting-edge technology to provide users with added value in everyday life (such as recording videos with a special camera and microphone). 

So, the goal is to create a seamless, interactive and enhanced viewing experience using data glasses as a digital companion in everyday life (for music, photos, videos, weather and health information). The integration of smart glasses into daily life will offer users navigation, communication, or other information on demand. By augmenting the physical world with digital data, the aim is also to intensify the perceptual experience. 

Significance for optics: 

Smart glasses expand the traditional role of eyewear and let people experiment with new, innovative features. This can combine technological resilience and a concrete awareness of the interaction of visual health and digital technology for long-term health, as presumably the trend towards integrating technology into everyday objects will continue to spread in the near future.
