Finnish researchers have created high-tech glasses that can track the user’s eye view and display information about what he saw.
The researchers have made a prototype of glasses that attached to a small handheld computer that takes information from the database.
“Glasses recognize people and some things you see, and try to conclude whether you would be interested to get more information about them,” said Samuel Kaski, director of the Institute of Helsinki in Information Technology at the University of Aalto.
“The data is displayed on the inside of the lens, but in such a way as looked in the real world,” he concluded.
The researchers expect future versions of this data glasses will be able to sync with wireless internet to retrieve information.
Glasses will be able to enlarge the object or person on the wearer’s environment and by using artificial intelligence software can identify their relevance to the wearer, so that we do not need to type in qwerty board when doing an Internet search.
This raises some interesting possibilities, for example, you can call the information about the person that you’ll meet for the first time, or learn nutrition facts of the item at the grocery store only with see the item.
Once the information is taken, the info is displayed on a small transparent screen that is located close to the wearer’s eyes and when viewed both text and images will appear to hover above or near the object of the wearer.
Virtual worlds and virtual real this kind is called augmented reality and some smartphone applications has provided versions of more or less like that.
The researchers are optimistic that this high-tech glasses will be available commercially within 5 to 10 years later and the next steps they will continue to report in detail their findings in the upcoming issue of the journal Virtual Reality. Article source
