Who would not move freely in 3D worlds, to see close games or movies? Glasses – brand new – mixed reality, augmented and virtual make this possible. Please come soon with great new features on the market.
Glasses on – and you’re in a completely different world. What works in the TV future in Star Trek on the holodeck, is already with the aid of special glasses possible, which can be completely immersed in virtual reality (VR). The real environment plays a role, however, is called augmented reality (AR) or mixed reality (MR). The difference between the two: While AR content in the real environment are embedded, but not interact with it, better gearing takes place at MR. Well known examples of AR are the Smartphone game “Pokémon go”. Selected the AR mode, an emerging Pokémon in the normal camera image appears, the animal is so there, where you set up your camera. It remains static: you respond to, the distance does not change, the Pokémon moves with you. Not so with mixed reality. Here is a virtual object like in real life. In the case of Pokémon go would the Pokémon so grow, if you move to it and smaller if you increase the distance.
The technology of the future
In terms of AR as Google with daydream view is on the way, a headset for the Smartphone, which costs 69 euro. Here is the mobile device in the headset and assumes the appearance of AR content.
Meta Meta AR also brings an AR glasses. However, she works in comparison to daydream view without Smartphone. Instead, it receives the AR content – holograms and other digital data – via HDMI from a powerful PC and represents it on the half-transparent glasses. The price for the development version, which currently order that is 949 dollars.
An example of MR glasses is Microsoft’s Hololens. You operates independently, so requires no PC, and allows the user thereby to move and interact, exposed him with the digital objects. Since November 2016 Hololens in Germany is available, Microsoft requires for this proud 3299 euro for the development version and 5489 euro for the consumer version.
A completely different technology, however, uses Magic Leap to resolve Mr. Google and Qualcomm financially, are Hollywood director Peter Jackson as well as best-selling author Neal Stephenson Advisory beteiligt 849379571. The system, which so far neither the look nor the operation are publicly known, will work with beams that are sent from a headset directly into the eye. “Photonic Lightfield” the company calls the underlying technology, which can show visible pixels, like her other MR and AR glasses, supposedly a thing of the past. The company does not reveal but still more, an official prototype is not yet available. But above all the miniaturization is who may be a problem so that the technique completely fit into a headset. Jackson wants to produce content but for Magic Leap, and Stephenson is entrusted with the development of new MR narrative forms.

Wireless future: VR goggles enable users to fully dive into a virtual world. However, the currently still have mandatory cable about the video data from the computer or game console to the glasses is disturbing. A battery-powered prototype, which wirelessly and even without a PC manufacturer of oculus presented with project Santa Cruz. The hardware necessary for the calculation of the VR worlds, as well as the corresponding sensors are integrated into the glasses. In addition project Santa Cruz taps into the cloud for VR calculations. These take place on remote farms and streamed wirelessly to the glasses. In addition, the position of the user in the room is realized by inside-out tracking. Monitor the environment of the user in the glasses integrated cameras, thereby it calculate the current position. Project Santa Cruz is still a prototype. It is not known if and when a final product in the market occurs.
Now how can you try VR?
VR goggles are gadgets for the tech enthusiast. They offer the opportunity to immerse yourself in a virtual world and to move freely. There are the glasses in cheap beginners as well as costly professional variants: want to try without any risk, whether the virtual world says to you, this will cost you only about five euros for the Google cardboard – a cardboard holder with two biconvex plastic lens through which you see on the display. Padded plastic models from 20 euros are more convenient and durable foam. The Samsung gear VR is with around one hundred euros more expensive. Also, you use your Smartphone as a screen. However, the gadget only with Samsung devices is compatible. Have a different phone and want to properly enjoy the potential of VR, it may be only a head-mounted display. Top devices like oculus rift, HTC Vive or Sony PlayStation VR start 700 Euro for good and differ in comfort. Not only as glasses try best before buying, as the glasses sits, because also in the weight, there are noticeable differences. The devices are connected via cable to a powerful PC, to generate a representation of reality as close as possible in real time with at least 25 frames per second.
