Technology company Meta (Facebook) announced that it will cooperate with BMW for Project Aria smart glasses. Here are the details…
Technology company Facebook has announced that it will partner with BMW for the Aria project. Yesterday, the social media giant changed its name to ‘Meta’ and announced its new projects. It is working on its AR (augmented reality) enabled, AI (artificial intelligence) supported smart glasses called Project Aria. Finally, in a statement, the company stated that it plans to test the Project Aria glasses with neural input wristbands and even in cars.
Meanwhile, Facebook’s new smart glasses announcement came after a series of confidential documents were leaked. The classified documents in question include worried comments about the company’s child safety and US democracy.
Social media giant Meta has announced a partnership with BMW. Concerns remain about the use of these smart glasses in vehicles. With this project, the company will test the driving experience while wearing smart glasses. Meanwhile, Facebook’s Ray-Ban Stories glasses and Google’s Google Glass headset are not recommended while driving.
Facebook states that the Aria smart glasses that it will test in partnership with BMW will not be announced immediately. Because Facebook’s AR glasses will probably hit the market a few years later. With such projects, the company aims to blend virtual objects and the real world with artificial intelligence. At the same time, these augmented reality glasses will have cameras that monitor daily activities.
Andrew Bosworth, vice president of augmented and virtual reality at technology company Facebook, told CNET last year. “In the next year or two, I would be quite surprised to see AR glasses in the industry,” Bosworth said. That’s exactly why we’ve been dealing with years. But I don’t think it will take decades.” said. In other words, Facebook’s AR glasses will not be released in 1-2 years, but it will not take many years.
However, Facebook launched its first camera glasses earlier this year. Last year, the company began field testing of Project Aria glasses with more advanced cameras and sensors, but without a screen, with 100 users.
The company is demoing the device, but the wrist inserts are not yet available. Facebook expects the glasses to have their own artificial intelligence to help search for lost items. This may require the need to record and process video. However, Facebook’s request for secure data processing with smart glasses came at a very wrong time. Because after the latest documents, there are serious accusations against Facebook.
