Top 5 Assisted Reality (AR) Glasses of 2022
Assisted Reality (AR) literally means assisted reality. It is an addition to reality. This is different from Virtual Reality (VR). With virtual reality you replace reality with a virtual world, but with Assisted Reality you supplement the real world with Information. And this is also slightly different from Augmented Reality (also abbreviated to AR). With Augmented Reality you add something to the real world, for example an image or hologram of someone. Assisted Reality is more focused on sharing Information. For example, assisted reality glasses often have a high-quality built-in camera with which someone else can watch work remotely. In this blog we will list the best Assisted Reality glasses.
Tip: It can sometimes be very difficult to choose the right Assisted Reality glasses. So please get in touch with our Digital Tech Specialist to discuss your wishes! This way we can immediately make the right recommendation for the right AR glasses and possibly the software to be used.

Microsoft Hololens 2
The Microsoft Hololens 2 is essentially an Augmented/Mixed Reality headset, but it also has the qualities that make an Assisted Reality headset good.

In addition to the possibilities of Assisted Reality, it is also possible with the Hololens 2 to work more with Augmented and Mixed Reality. For example, the Hololens 2 has a depth camera that makes it possible to scan the entire 3D space of a room. This makes it possible to realistically load a hologram or 3D images into space.

The Google Glass 2 a smart, lightweight assisted reality glasses. The frame is made of titanium, which ensures that it is comfortable to wear and can take a beating.

The Google Glass 2 can be operated via a button on the side, but can also be controlled via voice command. Please note that the Google Glass 2 is a development kit.
