Sketchfab.com had another Sketchfast over a weekend. the theme was “your ideal AR headset”
“Augmented reality headsets and glasses are all the rage today, with the Google glasses starting to ship and new players entering the field every week. But what would your ideal AR headset look like? How would you design the ideal AR headset for you? For your life?”
I had recently been thinking about both the cumbersome nature of the existing tech and also stuff like 3d glasses that one has to wear at the theatre or with a 3d TV..
especially if you already wear prescription glasses.
so I decided to make something that is more universal and clips onto most frames(prescription glasses or sunglasses)
to view it in 3d.. click below
