This Google XR Glass 2022 concept designed by Gokul Beeda looks better than the original Google AR glasses. There have been many players involved in the development of smart glasses, with Google being at the forefront followed by others like Facebook, Snap, and Xioami coming up with their own augmented reality glasses.
Google XR Glasses feature neo-retro acetate frames, with a chunky design that manages to cleverly conceal all the tech within its form factor. The latest concept offers users a wearable fashion option. The Bluetooth headsets seem to be bulky, while the AirPods are classy and sleek. On the other hand, the Google XR Glass looks like a regular pair of acetate frames. The design is clean, incredibly slim, and cohesive. We can view the clear separation between the aesthetic part of the glasses, and the tech part. All the aesthetics of the glass lies in the front of the glasses and their molded acetate design. On the tech side, it sits entirely in the temple stems, not conflicting with the overall visual appeal of the glasses.
Certainly the Google XR Glass 2022 concept looks as classy as your regular hipster frames, and a lot better than the clunky Google Glasses from 2013. Google XR Glass 2022 concept is a marriage between aesthetics and tech. It features Google’s beefed-up hardware and software chops, this includes the Pixel Tensor chip, the ARCore forms the bedrock of all of Android’s AR endeavors, and Google’s Soli chip proves to be the biggest secret sauce that goes with the concept.
Google debuted with the first edition of Google Glass back in 2013. It was a proof of concept that failed to achieve the desired results, eventually, Google dumped the product like many others in its ever-growing graveyard. Most of the tech in the Google XR Glasses is confined to the temple stems. The cameras sit nicely on each side of the frame in the front. This provides the parallax required to capture depth. It also features the Soli sensor capable of detecting and reacting to gestures such as swiping, tapping, spinning, pinching, etc.
While the digital elements are projected directly onto the Google XR Glasses’ lenses via a projector built into the inside of the temple stem. Being a concept it is not clear how all this tech will work, though the fact that they are not specialty lenses makes it theoretically possible to build prescription powered lenses built-in your Google XR Glasses.
