Bose is Developing Augmented Reality Sunglasses

The Bose AR glasses are not almost the finished product, but this product will purportedly tell you information about objects in the real world that you are looking at.

Bose has forayed into the augmented reality domain with the Bose AR - the first audio augmented reality platform in the world.

As for collaborations, some include ASICS Studio, Strava, TripAdvisor, TuneIn, and Yelp, whereas others will be announced in the future.

Bose AR Prototype Glasses.

The headset's "wafer-thin acoustics package", which the company claims will be "representing the future of mobile micro-sound", could be built into headphones, eye wear, helmets etc, therefore opening up useful technology to potentially different wearable designs.

The first prototype glasses are Bluetooth compatible for calls or to integrate with Siri or Google Assistant. The miniature acoustic package is embedded in each arm which will keep the audio private.

As for the concept sunglasses, we are not sure whether Bose intends on launching it for the masses just yet. This allows Bose AR to add an audible layer of information and experiences, rather then superimposing visual objects onto the real world and completely changing the users view.

Sensors in the glasses track the orientation of a listener and integrate with an iOS or Android device to track location and motion, which is sent to the AR-enabled application in the wearables.

Bose says that the audio-based AR glasses can be used when travelling and visiting a historical landmark. One example that was explained was that when you are looking at a historical monument, the company said that you might hear a speech from a famous person, or sounds that mimic the historical event.

Audio equipment designer and developer Bose and introduced an augmented reality (AR) audio platform at South by Southwest (SXSW).

John Gordon, vice president of the Consumer Electronics Division at Bose says "It places audio in your surroundings, not digital images, so you can focus on the wonderful world around you-rather than a tiny display".

This is certainly a new way of implementing AR technology, and pretty unique from the way AR is being implemented in other products and apps.
