  • Oculus plans to build Augmented Reality glasses

    SAN JOSE, CA - At the sixth annual Oculus Connect conference, a lengthy video presentation confirmed the virtual reality company's intention to build the device we've all assumed was in the works: "augmented reality glasses."

    The demo video revolved around the shared Oculus and Facebook vision of contextual data appearing in the real world while a user is wearing a pair of glasses. The demo video featured pop-up reminders (movie times, calendar reminders), along with a virtual conversation with a real-life friend who appears as a realistic, 3D version (as opposed to a cartoon avatar).

    Curiously, this demo video included zero visible glasses or hardware on anyone's face. Oculus made clear that its plans for this hardware mission were still quite early, and no timeline was announced.
