Chapter 1: Introduction
Smart glasses refer to wearable computing devices that add information to what the user sees. These devices function in a way similar to mobile phones and tablets and have the ability of processing and implementing various programs and applications. A majority of the smart glasses currently used in the market are embedded with touch and voice command features.
In general, smart glasses cover both the virtual reality (VR) headsets and augmented reality (AR) headsets. In VR, the user is completely submerged in a virtual environment, whereas in AR, the digital information is projected on top of the real world.
Augmented reality glasses are stand-alone devices while virtual reality devices need to be supported by other electronic devices such as smart phones, computers, and gaming consoles. Hence, in this report, the scope considered under smart glasses includes only augmented reality glasses, as they are equipped with computational capabilities and stand-alone devices. Since VR glasses do not have computational capabilities, they have not been considered as "smart glasses".
