13 Jul Samsung may develop foldable augmented reality glasses
So long as one of the pair’s temples is unfolded, the glasses’ projector (mounted on the temple) would beam images on the small display placed over the wearer’s field of view. To make sure the device doesn’t accidentally switch off if the user turns their head wrong, it looks like the company is thinking of using magnetic sensors to make sure it remains in the unfolded position until the wearer deliberately folds it.
Since it’s just a patent application that may never come to fruition, Samsung didn’t discuss what specific components it intends to use. It gave ARM-based processors as an example of the kind it might use, however, if the company ever decides to push through with the device’s development.
