This week, Nvidia is showcasing its latest research that could make AR wearables even more practical.
At the SIGGRAPH conference on computer graphics this week in Los Angeles, Nvidia will demo a pair of "Prescription AR" glasses. As the name suggests, the AR glasses can have a user's prescription built right in, creating a more convenient and comfortable experience.
Compared to current-generation AR devices, the display is many times thinner and lighter, and it has a wider field of view, according to Nvidia. Meanwhile, virtual objects appear throughout the environment rather than clustered in the center.
Next, Nvidia will demo its "Foveated AR" headset, which combines gaze tracking with image rendering for more efficient compute and power usage. The device adjusts the resolution of images it displays and their focal depth based on where the user is looking.
