Nimo Planet wants its AR glasses to replace your laptop when you’re on the go. Instead of lugging around your 3-pound machine, you’d just grab your Nimo, a slim Bluetooth keyboard, and a mouse (or maybe something like this). Wear the glasses at the airport or coffee shop, and the dual displays on the edge of each lens will serve up to six virtual screens so you can continue typing away. So, soon you may be able to leave all those devices with their own screens at home, thanks to new smart glasses that will make device screens virtual and holographic. These glasses, called "augmented reality" or "AR" glasses, are being developed by several companies and are already being used by some early adopters. The potential applications for AR glasses are vast, but one thing is certain: they will change the way we interact with technology.
Why is this important?
I believe high-resolution AR (augmented reality) and MR (mixed reality) glasses will eventually dematerialize many physical screen devices by making device screens virtual and holographic! Why spend money on an expensive television or monitor when these pixel/screens can also be projected holographically in the air? In the last few years, physical media like newspapers have been replaced by their digital versions; physical DVDs disappeared almost entirely from stores along with physical CDs too! And in the next few years, we will see the same with physical hardware devices. Computer server hardware has already gone virtual, for example, we are now able to run 10 to 100 virtual servers on one physical server. And computer screens are next. The more screens that will become virtual and holographic the fewer hardware screens we have to manufacture, the less we pollute the environment.
