The futuristic glasses utilize the power of augmented reality.
Twitter user WalkingCat has just released a concept video from Samsung detailing a new product called the ‘Glasses Lite’. The video bears resemblance to the company’s other product videos, which also adds some authenticity. The Glasses Lite uses AR to simulate a screen in front of you where you can use it just like a physical computer.

The glasses seem to have a thicker frame where it seems to house most of its components. The glasses of course seem to have a layered design that houses the display that you will see when you are wearing them. Most of the content seems to be mirrored from a Samsung device, letting you cast content straight to the glasses. A floating desktop is showcased next, which is confirmed to be Dex Display, the desktop operating system featured on Samsung Galaxy devices that allows you to use the smartphone just like a computer.
Of course, you can still use it as a normal pair of sunglasses as showcased by the Sunglasses Mode that automatically hides all UI and tints the glasses.
Another video was also leaked, highlighting Samsung’s vision on ‘Next Wearable Computing’. The video showcases how AR can be utilized so you can project yourself working in an office environment despite being somewhere else.
It’s an interesting concept that’s for sure, but we don’t know if or when Samsung is planning to announce it. What do you think about Samsung’s AR concept? Is it something you are willing to try out? Let us know in the comments!
