I know how much you have waited for the Apple Glass. And now it’s going to launch but Before this let’s find out its history and features.
Google announced its glasses in 2013 with some major features but it didn’t reached to their expected position because of many reasons. Some of them are given below:
✓ To do anything, you had to tilt your head and say “ok glass” Or use the touchpad.
✓ They were also expensive, clunky, and most importantly, people didn’t know why they needed them.
After some time Google reinvented the glasses as a tool for professionals. But they’re not sold directly to consumers, because they are not a mainstream product.
From here, Apple decided to work on something like that with some extra features.
Apple Watch And Samartwatch
The small and mighty Apple Watch has marked a trend with Apple’s devices. They’re getting more personal.
From the iMac to the Macbook. And then, the smartwatch. The next big product will be the most personal of them all.
Apple Glass looks like as a simple and normal pair of glasses with advance Technology of Augmented Reality.
AR mix the real world with the virtual one.
If you want to know about Augmented Reality and how it works, please go with the following link.
Features of Apple Glass
✓ The glasses will bring information from your phone to your face so you will be able to see texts, emails, and more on both lenses.
✓ The glasses are said to be controlled with gestures.
✓ The device could recognize blinking, smiling, or raising your eyebrows by tracking the movement of the attached light sensors.
Typically, an augmented reality experience would require cameras to make sense of the surroundings.
But you don’t need to fear about being secretly recorded because it’s apple. And it is not going to sell your personal information.
Apple has always taken a strong stance on privacy and saw the backlash when Google included a camera.
But they will still be able to “see” thanks to a revolutionary piece of technology that’s already in the new iPhone 12 Pro and the latest iPad Pro.
LiDAR scanner stands for “Light Detection And Ranging”.
If you have heard about “Self Driving Car” then you must have known this. Because that car use this technology to detect its surrounding.
How does it work?
The scanner and sensors measures the distance and depth by beaming out laser light.
This could be used in the glasses to help us see better in the dark.
✓ LiDAR opens up a world of possibilities for enhancing the AR experience.
✓ When it first came to the iPad, virtual objects could be placed precisely on top of real ones.
✓ The glasses could overlay directions on top of your view of real life.
Market of Apple Glass
It remains to be seen what standout feature or app using AR will entice people to want to get their hands on a pair.
If you see the history of apple, it doesn’t had a problem to convince people to buy its products.
The company’s arguably greatest strength is that customers trust in the quality of what they’re getting, even something as odd-looking as AirPods.
Extra Features of Apple Glass
✓ Just like the AirPods, the glasses will connect to the iPhone.
✓ Since the phone does the processing, the smart glasses won’t have as much material packed into them which keeps them slim, lightweight, and less expensive.
✓ A patent shows self-correcting lenses automatically adjusting to suit users’ eyes.
✓ There apparently won’t be a version for sunglasses, for now, as tinted lenses would interfere with reading the information properly on-screen.
Price of Apple Glass
When Google glasses came into the market their price was $1500. Which was a main reason why it didn’t last long.
But Apple is not going to make the same mistake.
If we look at the first generation of some Apple products that became a smashing success, because their price was significantly less.
The iPad launched at $499. The Apple Watch started at $349. So it wouldn’t be surprising for the glasses to be priced around a similar range.
Those with prescription lenses will cost slightly more if they’re even needed.
Battery Life of Apple glass
It may not have the longest battery life as any other of its first generation products.
A major selling point would be if it could last a whole waking day, just like the Apple Watch.
It is going to be charged wirelessly, as all of Apple’s products move toward a port-free world. So, the big question is
when will they be released?
For its release date the company closely estimate 2022 or 2023 are safe bets, and possibly as early 2021.
This may be the same time when Facebook plans to release its first pair of smart glasses. And for this Facebook has partnered with the maker of Ray Bans.
Facebook released a video showing the endless ways AR can be helpful in everyday life, from reminding you where you left your keys to pointing out recommendations when you walk into a store.
Till now it’s not clear about all of these functions.
VR and AR are both different words with different features. because users are taken out of the real-world experience completely and put into a simulated one.
They may not be something we thought we ever needed but they may end up being something that we want. So, we don’t have to wait much longer it is on the way. And you are going to experience a very interesting and advance Technology.
