With the introduction of the virtual reality (VR) headset, the Oculus Rift, this month there’s been much talk and anticipation about VR in our near future.
But while plenty people are talking about mainly good VR gaming, one company is talking about augmented reality using smartphones and integrating it into our daily (practical) lives.
We just learned that Dekko has secured a $3.2 million dollar push to create what appears to be a lightweight headset that interacts with our real environment via apps.
So it can direct you around, using your maps app. You can communicate on social networking sites like Twitter and Instagram using your gaze. Stuff like that. It’s in development. But very cool.
