Augmented reality (AR) glasses can now be built at home and very affordably, costing less than 20 euros.
Launched today, the world’s first freeware AR website shows, free of charge, how to build AR glasses from scratch. The website also explains the principles behind how AR glasses work.
“AR glasses will replace smartphones as an interface for using the Internet, or at least this is believed by many manufacturers of consumer electronics. However, their entry into the market is slowed down by a typical challenge: without AR glasses, there are no app developers, and without app developers, there is no market for AR glasses,” Professor Jyrki Saarinen from the Institute of Photonics at the University of Eastern Finland says.
