Samsung may create foldable augmented reality glasses

Samsung is investigating the likelihood of creating augmented reality glasses, in view of one of its most recent patent applications first spotted by Patently Apple. The documentation the tech giant submitted to the US Patent and Trademark Office indicates foldable gadget that looks progressively like an average pair of glasses – with a lot thicker frames to accommodate its electronic components – than the Samsung Gear VR. While the last item could end up being inconceivably extraordinary, the present design is an eyepiece that automatically switches on at whatever point it’s unfolded.

So long as one of the pair’s temples is unfolded, the glasses’ projector (mounted on the temple) would beam pictures on the little display placed over the wearer’s field of view. To ensure the gadget doesn’t accidentally switch off if the client turns their head wrong, it would appear that the organization is considering utilizing magnetic sensors to ensure it stays in the unfolded position until the wearer purposely folds it.

Since it’s only a patent application that may never come to fruition, Samsung didn’t talk about what specific components it means to utilize. It gave ARM-based processors for instance of the kind it may utilize, be that as it may, if the organization ever decides to push through with the gadget’s improvement.
