Sunglasses AR headset announced by Qualcomm

Qualcomm has announced the Snapdragon XR1 AR Smart Viewer, a new augmented reality headset for enterprise users. It is optimized for devices equipped with Snapdragon, a Qualcomm mobile chip, and it is assumed to be used by connecting directly to a smartphone or PC.

A micro OLED display is located in the lens part of this product. The camera is attached to the lens and the Qualcomm logo is painted on the wide frame. A USB Type-C terminal is mounted at the end of the left temple, allowing it to be connected to a smartphone.

When you put on the headset, a cursor appears and you can start the application by selecting the icon. The cursor can be manipulated with the movement function (See What I See) without using a hand. This can be done with a connected smartphone, and it also has a function that recognizes hand gestures through a headset camera. The Snapdragon XR1 AR Smart Viewer supports 6DoF, which can read the front-to-back, left-right, up-and-down movements, and can run multiple apps such as web browsers, YouTube, and Instagram at the same time. It is also possible to connect to a PC and work in Excel while opening PowerPoint.

Qualcomm emphasizes that this product can achieve a frame rate of up to 90Hz and experience smooth AR with motion blur-free features. This product reference design will be the first step in the roadmap for expanding the AR industry. Related information can be found here .



Through the monthly AHC PC and HowPC magazine era, he has watched 'technology age' in online IT media such as ZDNet, electronic newspaper Internet manager, editor of Consumer Journal Ivers, TechHolic publisher, and editor of Venture Square. I am curious about this market that is still full of vitality.
