Samsung to release new mixed reality glasses and Gear VR aid for the visually impaired at Mobile World Congress.
Samsung’s is set to release a set of mixed reality glasses at Mobile World Congress 2017 that appear to use Microsoft’s Windows Holographic Shell for PC and while on the phone it would have a multi-window shell for Android.
On the right of the device is a CPU, Wi-Fi chip, and projector, while the left incorporates a battery and speaker. Content is capable of being streamed over Wi-Fi Direct or peer-to-peer Wi-Fi.
"Monitorless addresses the fact that there isn't enough AR and VR content currently available and also enables users to play high-capacity PC games on a mobile device,"- Samsung
This could be the holy grail for all the "second-screen experience" talk during the recent years.
An application to consider would be it's functionality for Twitch streamers, allowing for chat control, multiple games, and social aspects.
Monitorless is a remote-control VR/AR solution that enables consumers to use devices such as smartphones and PCs without a monitor. The solution consists of a special pair of glasses that resemble regular sunglasses. They are used to view content from other devices such as smartphones and PCs and can be used for both Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality functionality thanks to the electro chromic glass featured on the glasses.
Samsung has also developed a visual aid application for Gear VR to help near-blind and visually-impaired read books and watch TV more easily.
This is part of a big push by Samsung at next weeks Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
