If you wanna manipulate 3-D images in thin-air, these new Tony-Stark glasses willl perfectly suit you!
“I think therefore I am”, this famous quote of Descartes nowadays is widely dispersed in the aisles of advanced technology. Everyday a new discovery or a new experiment. We can even call 2013, the year of inventions within 21st century. We still don’t know what future holds, however it’s sure that the year we’re living in; is the most fruitful one since the turn of millenium.
An augmented-reality glasses news hit the the technology headlines today created by a Silicon Valley startup called Meta; which will let you interact with virtual objects in the real world. That said, placing holograms on the real world, reaching out and touching them with your hands will be within the bounds of possibility.
Founder of Meta, 28-year-old Meron Gribetz, moved to US from Israel to study computer and neuroscience at Columbia University, says an infinite computer screen was his dream and he always wanted to be able to touch holograms and stick’em on parts of the real world. He launched the company in December 2012 and moved to California with help from Y Combinator that which aids with funds and nurture tech startups.
An absolute gamechanger, Meta Glasses, will be generating an application that will allow the user to take one’s phone, tablet soon computers and project them in 3-D in one’s environment, when they’re not actually there. And if this happens, the next generation of computing, a pair of glasses and only using your hands, will make it possible for the applications to be endless.
The first version of the glasses, a developer edition, is selling for around $700. The glasses are set to be delivered in December 2013.
So how does the technology work?
“The glasses are … a two-part system. The first is a 3-D output display that’s built with a stereoscopic pair of see-through augmented-reality glasses. The 3-D output display allows you to see the holograms in 3-D,” Gribetz said. “The 3-D scanner scans your environment and tells the computer where to place the 3-D graphics relative to the user and the world.”
Unlike Google’s rival Glass eyewear, which has a smaller screen and is primarily controlled by your voice, Meta glasses could have the potential for an infinite screen controlled by your hands.
