It was one thing to see Tom Cruise wield technology at the tips of his fingers and move details and images around in thin air and it was something else to see that taken to new heights in the Iron Man movies. Jarvis, Tony Stark’s fantastic ‘home’ computer projected holographic details of components, complex structures and more that could be easily manipulated by users with gestures – from expanding the projected information of crime scenes to view intricate details and so much more. As tech aficionados all over the world ogled at the ‘Marvel’ (pun intended) of Jarvis, one company thought of actually trying to duplicate the tech and make it portable as well. With the help of cameras and LCD projectors mounted on a pair of goggles with an active matrix display, a company called Meta are developing what they’re calling, Spaceglasses.
With the capabilities of almost anything that you’d expect Jarvis to do, Spaceglasses also let you design and manipulate all kinds of forms in a virtual environment taking Augmented Reality to a whole new level. With features that involve simple things like facial recognition that will pull up data on people you meet to, building Lego constructions and designing forms to interact with 3D printers, these glasses could be, in a word, amazing! The best part about this is it all looks like it’s well packaged into a neat looking pair of glasses that one could use around the home or office. It might not be as slick and chic as Google Glass, but it definitely has more potential. It’s available for preorder for just $667 off of their site. That seems like a pretty decent deal. Check out the video below for a better idea of the Spaceglasses capabilities.
