Facebook首席科学家预测,增强现实眼镜2022年将取代智能手机

【Facebook首席科学家预测,增强现实眼镜2022年将取代智能手机】Facebook的首席科学家Michael Abrash称,在之后的五年,增强现实眼镜将逐渐取代智能手机。增强现实眼镜可以全时段人类提供虚拟信息,同时可以对不喜欢的对话静音,以及即时翻译。Michael Abrash称他希望开发出可以增强人的听觉与视觉,拓展我们的智力与能力,轻松、舒适、时尚、社会可接受的装置,他相信2022年增强现实眼镜可以被广泛接受。不过专业人士也称,尽管2022年可以普及,但科学家还需要10-20年采用先进的光学设备和显示器。

Augmented reality GLASSES will replace smartphones in 2022, Facebook executive predicts

  • Prediction that glasses will be our everyday computing device in five years
  • Glasses will provide us with virtual information such as how hot something is
  • They will improve our memory and instantly feed us information all the time

Lightweight glasses that will improve our memory will become our everyday computing device by 2022, according to a Facebook scientist.

Michael Abrash, the chief scientist of Facebook-owned Oculus Research, said augmented reality (AR) glasses will take over from smartphones in the next five years.

They will augment our current reality and will make us 'smarter and more capable', according to the chief scientist.

WHAT WILL THEY DO?

Glasses will provide us with virtual information all the time such as finding out the temperature of something just by looking at it.

They will also be able to mute annoying background conversation and and instantly translate foreign languages.

Michael Abrash said they would hbe 'light, comfortable, stylish, power efficient and socially acceptable enough to accompany you everywhere you go'.

Although he predicts they will be widely available by 2022, scientists will need another decade or two for these glasses to have the advanced optics and displays.

The chief scientist said he hoped to developed a device that 'enhances your vision and hearing seamlessly, that makes you smarter and more capable, that is light, comfortable, stylish, power efficient and socially acceptable enough to accompany you everywhere you go.'

Abrash believes 2022 will be the year when 'widespread, glasses-based augmented reality' becomes the new normal.

'Even once we're on that ramp it will take may years to fully realise AR's potential, just as it took decades for human oriented computing to mature and reach billions of people,' he said.

'Twenty or 30 years from now, I predict that instead of carrying stylish smartphones everywhere, we'll wear stylish glasses.

'Those glasses will offer VR, AR and everything in between and we'll use them all day,' he said.

Google Glass was one of the first attempts at glasses that doubled up as computers but was widely deemed to be a failure.

It consisted of a head-mounted display that was fashioned to look like a pair of eyeglasses and would display information in a smartphone-like manner.

However, it seemed the public wasn't ready for the futuristic device and Google halted sales in 2015.

The Google Glass was surrounded by controversy, as the public galled wearer's 'glassholes' and news surfaced that users could steal personal data from others around them.
