Augmented Reality: Games and the World Around Us

Posted by Stephen Benton on April 3rd, 2017

The world around us is becoming increasingly connected by the day. Even things as simple as a toothbrush or a pair of socks can today gather information about our habits, offering us insights on things we wouldn't even have thought were important before. We can interact with all the connected smart devices around us using the devices we continuously use - smartphones. These are, in turn, far from being the perfect choices for every situation and environment. Sometimes we need to expand beyond the screen that's perfect for playing All Slots Canadian Online Casino games but falls short when it comes to productivity and collaboration. Our phones serve us perfectly with a game of craps at the All Slots, or when we passively absorb information - like when reading the All Slots blog - but the need to scale up emerges quite often. This is where augmented reality can be of service.

When Google first presented its Glass project, the excitement around it was amazing. The idea of a wearable display placing a digital layer on top of the real world was embraced by the public in no time. Google Glass was ultimately killed off by Google due to the privacy and safety concerns surrounding it but the idea itself has remained. Since then, numerous companies have worked on optical head-mounted displays (OHMDs, or smart glasses), but with limited success. The issue, it seems, was that they were far too generic. But where a generic product can fail, another meant for a specific class of users can succeed.

One of the best examples of this idea is Raptor, a line of cycling glasses being developed by Everysight. The glasses are clearly aimed at both professional and recreational cyclists, providing them with information like speed, slope, heart rate, navigation, and their likes by projecting them directly into their field of view (protecting their eyes from the wind and the flying debris at the same time).

The Raptor was tested by a select group of users last year. The final product will most likely be released soon.
