DigiTimes Research believes that augmented reality glasses will be difficult to replace smartphones
Some technical experts believe that the glasses are augmented reality (AR) have the potential to replace smartphones. One of the founders of HoloLens Alex Kipman (Alex License) stated that the smartphone is already dead, and the former head of the Department of research and development at Valve, Michael Abrash (Michael Abrash) who now works at Oculus VR, says that AR glasses will replace smartphones in the next five years.
AR glasses get more soveraigne technology, including a small high-resolution displays, 3D cameras, various types of sensors, batteries that allow them to work. However, DigiTimes Research believes that augmented reality glasses will be difficult to replace smartphones.
The developers should make some kind of breakthrough, in particular, in the user interface, as well as offering a really innovative application that will allow points AR to assert themselves as an integral part of our lives.
For example, we use intuitive touch screens and sometimes voice control with smartphones. Methods input data in existing on the market AR glasses are not so simple, in addition, when using gestures or voice leaves open the question of confidentiality.
