Facebook is shaping the future! Wearable AR glasses are coming next year

The future is here! Well, actually not here, but next year we will be able to buy something close to a miracle.

After lengthy research for the development of a technology designed to later replace regular smartphones, which took place at the Facebook Reality Lab in Washington, Facebook has revealed that it will launch a revolutionary product, called AR glasses, next year.

The main purpose of the glasses, as stated by the developers, is to make your daily tasks easier. The device is an indoor and outdoor mapping tool designed to help you remember details about the places where you have previously been, for example, finding your phone, which might be in another room or someplace else, far, far away.

Mike Schroepfer, Facebook director of Technology, hopes that this invention, although still in the early stage, can be used to help us remember where we left the car keys or whether to add pepper to a dish we are going to prepare.

A closer look to the prototype pair of AR glasses Facebook will release next year.

They want to use Artificial Intelligence to perfect our own memory.

In a partnership with EssilorLuxottica, which is the parent company of many brands such as Ray-Ban, Oakley, Sunglass Hut and LensCrafters, Facebook has now created a prototype that, for the moment, is only available to a limited group of their employees from the United States, who are being trained in the proper use of the device.

Participants are advised not to use the AR glasses in public baths or prayers areas.

It now depends on how users will react and how much they will trust a technology that will give them “superpowers” which will become deeply embedded in their personal daily activities, but which could raise many questions and concerns about confidentiality and protection against possible leaks of personal and potentially dangerous information.
