The pleasure to work with free hands using the best Smart Glasses
Smart Glasses (or Smartglass) are technological glasses with a standard sunglasses-like appearance, featuring an internal advanced computer that allows the wearer to live an all-round Augmented Reality experience.
These Digital glasses, thanks to their characteristics, can be qualified as Media Glasses or Video Glasses, since they are able to reproduce both video and audio files, apart from supporting other services like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connection.
In the last few years, technology has been overwhelming our very existence. We live in symbiosis with our smartphone and we never let go of our computers, because these devices, for better of worse, became part of our life.
The distinctive feature of Smart Glasses is that they can function by simply wearning them, and they can adapt to any head and face.
These Media Glasses have been available for five years now; the Google Glass flop made us believe that they would disappear, but instead the interest in these devices is growing stronger. Even Facebook declared that within the end of 2020, along with Luxottica, they are going to release a new Smart Glasses model that will revolutionize the market.
AR Smart Glasses
Augmented Reality is experienced mostly by head-mounted devices and smartphone applications.
The AR overlaps digital contents to the real world. Therefore it improves the user experience in the real world instead of replacing it.
Unlike virtual reality, which is artificial, AR helps to improve the world around you, allowing Smart Glasses wearers to do any activity with a better support.
The AR has the support of technology giants, that are investing not only in the hardware, but they are also working with developers to create easy to use softwares.
For example, Brochesia is testing new AR forms through software solutions suitable not only for devices, but for smartphones too.
Let’s discover which are the best smart glasses to use.
