Bose AR Glasses Announced - Augmented Reality Audio in Sunglasses

Bose has reportedly developed a tiny “wafer-thin” acoustics package for the platform that “represents the future of mobile micro-sound and features ‘jaw-dropping power and clarity

The Bose AR prototype glasses are Bluetooth compatible with microphones for calls or to activate Siri or Google Assistant.

Augmented reality has mostly always been thought of visual overlays wherein the virtual can be superimposed on the real with the help of AR headsets of glasses.

The glasses are backed by the Bose AR platform that comes with a singular goal of improving daily life by providing relevant information.

At SXSW, Bose unveiled a prototype AR smartglasses which is rather surprising as the company is an audio company, but the glasses do not stray far from their roots as it is said to add an audible layer of information and experiences to what you see rather than displaying information for the user. There are no headphones or speakers built-into these glasses, but the company says it uses a minuscule acoustics package developed for the AR platform.

Ben Stokes set to miss Lord's Test against India
The alleged incident in which he has charged, happened outside a nightclub in Bristol which forced him to miss the Ashes as well. England declared Stokes available once more only after he pleaded not guilty at Bristol Magistrates Court in February.

As for the concept sunglasses, we are not sure whether Bose intends on launching it for the masses just yet. The AR wearable is fitted with motion sensors and uses the Global Positioning System from an iOS or Android device to track the wearers location. The product utilizes visual information captured by the glasses and provides relevant audio information to the person wearing it. The company said it is collaborating with academic research institutes, including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Lab and the New York University Future Reality Lab, developers and manufacturers such as ASICS Studio, Starva, TripAdvisor, and Yelp, among other partners.

Bose is not messing around here either; they have created a $50 million dollar fund to und to finance companies that would like to work with the new audio technology and is providing an SDK and updated glasses later this summer.

Looking up to the sky could prompt a weather forecast to get read out, or you could nod your head to bring up a music playlist and skip between songs getting piped through a pair of smart specs like the prototype pair Bose has already shown off. It knows which way you're facing, and can instantly connect that place and time with endless possibilities for travel, learning, music and more.
