enschede - Students at the Technical University of Twente have called 'augmented reality' glasses made of cardboard in which users can slide their smartphone.
The design reminds of the Google Cardboard virtual reality virtual spectacle. The difference, however, is that the glasses of the students called Aryzon enable the carrier to continue to see the real world, with the phone adding virtual elements. The concept is comparable to the Holholes of Microsoft.
The virtual elements are displayed in a mirror in the carrier's field of view. For example, it is possible to show a virtual room in a room to see if it would fit both physically and stylitically with the rest of the interior.
The students started a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for Aryzon mass production. Participants will receive a copy of € 29 for a contribution.
