Wearable computing and augmented reality venture Meta has developed a pair of AR glasses that enable the wearer to manipulate virtual objects in 3D space using their hands.
The company, which was founded by Meron Gribetz in December, has 15 graduate and undergraduate students primarily from Columbia University contributing to it. Meta believes that natural computation is the future and aims to bring a sleek and intuitive user experience to the world. Gribetz says:
It’s the way computers always should have been: wearable, viewed through both eyes, and directly controlled using their entire arms and hands.
Meta is actively advised by professor Steven Feiner, who has many firsts in augmented reality to his name. They have developed a pair of stereoscopic glasses combined with super low latency gesture tracking. The video below shows futuristic applications of these glasses, which could change the way we interact with video games, televisions, and computers:
