Samsung research group will unveil augmented and virtual reality related devices and apps at Mobile World Congress 2017. The company may unveil its Monitorless AR and VR glasses. Samsung Monitorless Glasses will connect to phones or PCs via WIFI Direct and replace the screen on the devices, allowing users to work “monitor-less”.
Check out below for more details:
- Monitorless. A pair of “sunglasses” that support both AR and VR. They connect to your phone or PC and allow you to use your electronics in augmented or virtual reality.
- Relúmĭno. A “visual aid” application for the Gear VR that helps the visually impaired read and watch TV with “new levels of clarity.”
- VuildUs. An app that allows users to see what furniture looks like in their house before they buy it. It uses a 360-degree camera to measure distances and depth and works via an app for “compatible” VR devices. Not the first of its kind by a long chalk.
- traVRer. A 360-degree video platform that lets users “experience realistic virtual travel before and after a real-life trip.” Looks like any virtual reality ‘travel’ experience, albeit with an UI with more information.
