Augmented reality goggles are being created for drivers by Mini

The auto manufacturer is now developing a new type of product and it isn’t another form of small car.

Recently, at the Auto Shanghai event, Mini revealed that it is going to be rolling out a new product in the form of a pair of augmented reality goggles that are meant to help to improve the experience of drivers.

The devices are going to be called Mini Augmented Vision and are a pair of high tech glasses.

These augmented reality goggles are meant to be worn by drivers so that they will be able to obtain more information about their vehicles and where they are going, available within the field of vision but without getting in the way of the view of the actual road. While behind the wheel of the Mini vehicle, a wearer will be able to view a number of different kinds of information. These include: destination points that a driver can choose before leaving, a navigation display of the first and the last mile of the route, reminders and notifications of factors such as current traveling speed and speed limits.

The augmented reality goggles also help to guide a driver from one point to another along the route.

This wearable technology provides navigation arrows to give directions and suggest lane changes and turns when traveling from one place to another. It can also signal certain points of interest along the way. The goggles can alert the driver with regards to incoming messages from a connected smartphone. Moreover, it can provide a type of X-ray vision of the Mini in order to be able to see where it is in relation to objects and obstacles around it.

These AR glasses can also use the external cameras of the vehicle in order to obtain a clearer image of where the curb and other obstacles are, in order to make it easier to park.

The view through these augmented reality glasses make it much easier to see through the vehicle so that the road ahead will be easier to understand and to navigate. As of yet, Mini has not released any details with regards to its availability or how much they are going to cost.

Augmented reality glasses from Sony, SmartEyeglass, hit the shelves

These wearable devices have now become available in ten countries for an official price of $840.

The SmartEyeglass from Sony, that brand’s augmented reality glasses, have now officially received their rollout for consumers to purchase them in any of ten different initial countries.

The smart glasses were first unveiled last year, but they hit the store shelves at the end of March.

At the moment, what is available is the Sony SmartEyeglass Developer Edition (SED-E1). Those augmented reality glasses also include an additional controller and come with a price tag of $840. That said, if the nerdy appearance of Google Glass was a put off too much of the market, then they may not be impressed with the far less sophisticated looking wearable technology that Sony has now released.

These augmented reality glasses have been designed to provide the wearer with a pure AR experience.

They use hologram optics tech in order to be able to superimpose images, symbols, and text overtop of the natural field of view of the wearer. This idea is not unlike Google Glass, in that sense, as Sony’s version is able to place an overlay of digital information over top of the real environment of the wearer. For instance, it could add directions and arrows on top of the actual street view being seen by the person wearing the device.

At the moment, these AR glasses are available only in the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan, France, Spain, the Netherlands, Sweden, Italy, Germany, and Belgium. Consumers in the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan and Germany are able to buy these wearables, no matter who they are. However, in the other countries in which the devices are being sold, there are certain limitations, such as the fact that only business customers will be allowed to buy them, at least for the first wave of the rollout.

At the time that this article was written, Sony had not yet announced how it intended to move forward with the rollout of these augmented reality glasses beyond the initial ten countries. It is unclear whether there will be a global release or whether the device will ever become available to all consumers.
