So this is not for consumers but intended for other manufacturers to use to develop their own products. There are already a number of merging AR glasses on the market, not all ready for prime time use though. Augmented Reality (AR) is different from Virtual Reality (VR) in that it overlays information over what you still see in the real world, so its use case is directed more at productivity, whilst VR is often more directed towards gaming (or removing you from reality).
A lot will depend though on useful and affordable software applications, and whether there will be open standards across AR devices. Open standards lower the cost of development of applications (cheaper to buy and quicker to develop), and will make it easier for buyers knowing they won't be locked into just one manufacturer's products (or be forced to log into Facebook to use a device).
AR glasses may seem expensive but if they can replace three very large desktop monitors in a small space, it starts making a lot of sense. But we're probably not quite there yet in terms of resolution... so watch this space over the next year or two.

The Qualcomm XR1 AR Glasses will give us a glimpse of what future AR glasses will be like, not in a few years but THIS year. In 2021. So let’s talk about tha...
