About Mobile Augmented Reality
Smart glasses are devices that are fitted with a small display and can also be used as conventional glasses. Smart glasses are a sleeker version of HMD and while the functioning of smart glasses is similar to HMDs, they also have a see-through display and look like a pair of normal glasses. The adoption of smart glasses is expected to increase significantly among enterprises and individual consumers for various applications in healthcare, industrial use, and logistics, among others.
