Augmented Reality Glasses Are The New Interface

While most of us are waiting around for Google Glass to hit the commercial market, there are a lot of other groups working on their own wearable, augmented reality computing solutions. One of those groups recently took the wraps off its concept video designed to illustrate how their device will work.

Meta was recently demonstrated at a meeting of augmented reality enthusiasts in New York City. It combines a pair of Epson Moverio personal display glasses along with a finger-tracking camera, that the user wears, to allow direct interaction with virtual objects. Meta combines a wearable computer with controllers. The concept video looks interesting, but there’s still a need for more detail before users rush to buy these.

The current device is in beta developmental mode, and it looks like developers will get it first so that a library of apps can be made. Later, a commercial version will be released.
