Real augmented reality glasses are out of reach
Real augmented reality glasses are out of reach

Facebook's chief scientist told Reuters it would take five to ten years for Facebook to bring real augmented reality goggles to market.

The company has announced plans to launch the first generation of products next year.

The world's largest social media company announced Wednesday that it has teamed up with eyewear maker Ray-Ban EssilorLuxottica to bring smart glasses to the market in 2021.

The social media giant has also announced a research project called Project Aria to collect data and support the future development of more advanced eyeglasses.

Michael Abrash, Director of Reality Lab Research (RLR) at Facebook, said that interactive display and audio features cannot be fully housed in a lighting device (such as glasses), and it is estimated that a weight of about 70 grams can be achieved.

He explained that these features include the ability of users to view and interact with shared virtual objects, such as: b. A virtual whiteboard that they can work on together.

"These glasses still have a long way to go. They won't appear in 2021, but I'm talking about the future," Abrash said.

A company spokesperson said: In 2021, the first usable products that rely on cell phones will not have screens.

Many industry insiders believe that these types of glasses will eventually replace cell phone functions, which has sparked a debate among tech giants such as Apple, Amazon and Google.

Snap glasses were first launched in 2016, and elements of augmented reality were incorporated into third-generation products last year.

“For the foreseeable future, smart glasses will have to rely on cell phones and other devices due to battery life limitations and the heat generated during treatment,” Abrash said.

Other devices have become eyeglasses accessories with real augmented reality glasses. This is because with glasses you see and interact with the world.
