Razer Anzu Smart Glasses is more like an open-ear headset

Nreal Light AR glasses are coming to the US

Some consider AR or augmented reality to be the next step forward in computing. Unlike VR, AR mixes the real and the digital in an almost seamless manner, at least ideally speaking.

Next Magic Leap AR headset specs teased

Although VR systems like the Facebook Oculus and HTC Vive get the lion's share of mass media coverage, they are often geared more towards entertainment with a pinch of productivity on the sides. In contrast, AR, at least the ones that involve headsets, is often marketed as something for more serious work, which is probably why most of these products are available only for enterprise customers.

HP OMEN accessories with Warp Wireless tech lets you cut more cords

While most PC gamers do their gaming on desktops or at least laptops laying on something flat, it doesn't mean they are fine being enslaved and tethered by cables. Notorious for being picky about both performance and appearances, gamers will most likely prefer to free themselves of cables and cords as long as they get the same powerful experience.
