Google Foxconn patent buy amps up augmented reality for Glass

Though they've not said so in so many words, the folks at Hon Hai Precision (aka Foxconn) have just sold patents to Google that'll allow the US-based company to expand their hold on the world of augmented reality through head-mounted displays. This buy can quite readily be traced to the wearable device known as Google Glass, a head-mounted display with camera, wireless connectivity, and voice recognition abilities.

Google Glass augmented reality gets real-time demo

Google Glass augmented reality gets real-time demo

We already saw augmented reality on Google Glass last month as developer Brandyn White created an augmented reality UI that uses Mirror API to display information over still images.

A developer by the name of Brandyn White has created for Google Glass an augmented reality user interface that will one day be integrated as easy as any other Glassware.

Mirror API is a software developer environment unveiled by Google earlier this year made for developers to easily create apps without Google's supported bounds.

Meta plans true augmented reality with Epson-powered wearable

Meta plans true augmented reality with Epson-powered wearable

The augmented reality scene is hotting up, with the promise of full computer-mediated vision for the mainstream and another hint that Google won't have the Glass market all to itself thanks to an incoming headset from startup Meta. The wearable project actually goes one step further than Project Glass, putting a full twin-display digital environment - controlled by two hand 3D tracking - in front of the user, rather than floating notifications and prompts in the corner of their eye as Google's system does.
