Engadget said Qualcomm’s smart glasses technology has evolved significantly in a couple of years. The company revealed the reference design for the Wireless AR Smart Viewer, a next-generation pair of augmented reality glasses aimed at helping device partners build their own immersive glasses. Compact, it’s 40 percent thinner despite packing the newer (if slightly outdated) Snapdragon XR2 system. Add a balanced weight distribution and the device should be much more comfortable than its predecessor, even if it doesn’t win any fashion awards. Every eye gets a 1080p, 90Hz micro-OLED display that is said to eliminate motion blur. You’ll also have full motion with six degrees of freedom thanks to three cameras (two monochrome and one color) as well as hand tracking with gesture recognition. WiFi 6E and Bluetooth help switch data quickly while keeping the lag under 3ms between the glasses and the host device. Few manufacturers have access to Qualcomm’s new augmented reality design, and more of them should take their turn within “months” coming.” You wouldn’t buy these exact devices as a daily customer. However, it could lead to a wave of next-gen glasses that you don’t mind wearing for gaming or work — even perhaps not as ambitious as some augmented reality projects.
