The future of Head Mounted Displays (HMDs) and their role in Augmented Reality is brighter than ever. The technology has already begun to transform the way we experience AR, and it’s only going to get better from here.
Head Mounted Displays (HMDs) are the future of AR
Head Mounted Displays (HMDs) are the future of augmented reality. The technology is still in its infancy and has not yet reached mainstream adoption, but there’s no denying that HMDs will change AR and become more widespread as time goes on.
In this article, I’ll explain what makes an HMD different from other forms of AR like mobile apps or Google Glass.
Real-world objects are key to AR’s success.
If you’re new to the world of AR, this may seem like a strange concept. Why would you want to see the world in such an abstract way? The answer is simple: because it’s awesome!
AR isn’t about replacing what you can do with your phone or tablet; it’s about adding something completely new to your experience. More than just overlaying graphics on top of reality or adding virtual objects into our environment, AR has the potential to let us experience things in entirely new ways–like seeing yourself from another person’s perspective (which could be useful if they’re taller than you).
Exploring HMDs in Augmented Reality is a new frontier.
HMDs are a new frontier in Augmented Reality. They’re headsets that allow users to experience AR without having to wear goggles or glasses. Instead, they project the holographic images directly into your field of vision using an array of lenses and mirrors.
HMDs work differently than VR headsets because they have no head tracking capabilities; instead you look at objects through them as if they were transparent glass windows floating in front of your eyes. This makes them easier to use than other types of virtual reality devices because there’s no need for controllers or touchpads–just point your gaze at what interests you!
The first HMDs were created back in 1968 by Ivan Sutherland who called his prototype “The Sword Of Damocles.” Since then many companies have made their own versions such as Google Glasses (2010), Microsoft Hololens (2015) and even Nintendo Switch which was announced last year but hasn’t been released yet
Developers will have more flexibility with HMDs
In the future, we’ll see developers creating more immersive, engaging and interactive experiences. We’ll also see them creating more efficient experiences for users.
HMDs are going to allow developers to create more immersive games that make players feel like they’re part of the action instead of just watching it from afar. For example, imagine playing Madden on an HMD where you can catch passes from your favorite quarterback in VR or shooting zombies with friends in AR (augmented reality).
Developers will also be able to create more engaging apps because they have access to better tools like Unity3D which allows developers to build their own content using 3D models instead of just 2D images like Photoshop does now
The future is bright for HMDs in Augmented Reality.
- HMDs will be more affordable. As the technology gets cheaper and more efficient, more people will be able to use it. This means that more businesses will be able to invest in AR products and software, which leads us to our next point:
- HMDs will be more portable and comfortable. With better optics and battery life, you can wear your HMD for longer periods of time without getting tired or stressed out about running out of juice before the end of your shift (or trip). And if your company decides they want everyone on staff wearing their own HMDs while working remotely from home offices or satellite offices miles away from headquarters? No problem! Just pop yours on overtop any pair of glasses or sunglasses before walking outside into sunlight–that way neither one side sees through anything but clear air while another side still has access via virtual reality.*
- Powerful processors mean faster processing speeds for all those complex calculations necessary when overlaying digital objects onto real world environments.* More available bandwidth means less lag between what you’re seeing through VR goggles versus what others see around them due how fast information travels back-and-forth between devices linked together via WiFi signals.* Useful apps mean more possibilities when trying out new experiences like playing games where opponents appear right beside each other despite being thousands miles apart from each other physically speaking – but really only inches away digitally speaking (if not centimeters).
Head mounted displays are going to change AR and become more widespread
Head mounted displays are going to change AR and become more widespread. They will be the future of AR and have many advantages over the current glasses-based technology.
- HMDs are more flexible than AR glasses. They can be worn by anyone who wants them, regardless of their age or physical ability.
- HMDs are more immersive than AR glasses since they put you inside the virtual world rather than just presenting it in front of your eyes like a screen would on top of one’s vision (like with Google Glasses). This makes it feel like one is actually there in that place or interacting with those characters/objects instead of just watching them onscreen as if viewing a movie through 3D glasses at home–which isn’t exactly very exciting!
The future of Augmented Reality is bright and full of potential. Head Mounted Displays (HMDs) are going to change the way we experience AR and make it more accessible for everyone. The possibilities are endless, but one thing is certain: these technologies will allow us to explore new worlds while still being able to stay grounded in reality.
