[WEBINAR] The New Normal: Dealing with the Reality of an Unsecure World

Augmented Reality Headset (AR Headset)

Definition - What does Augmented Reality Headset (AR Headset) mean?

An augmented reality headset is a specialized, head-mounted display device that provides a simulated visual environment through physical display optic lenses, allowing the user to see both a digital display and the world through the glasses.

Augmented reality headsets provide virtual images, videos, animation or informational content to users who wear them, allowing them to add virtual elements to the real world they can see through the glasses. This is an emerging technology that aims to transform the world as users see it depending on what they're looking at.

Techopedia explains Augmented Reality Headset (AR Headset)

An augmented reality headset normally provides the same reality-based environment as that seen through the naked eye, but it adds visual simulation or content to provide an enhanced view to the user. Augmented reality may be used in real-world scenarios such as education, health, construction and others to provide users with more information, computer-assisted decision making and interactive learning and training.

Augmented reality headsets are typically designed to be similar to eye glasses except that the lenses are made of transparent LCD or another display mechanism. The headsets also include a built-in microprocessor and storage.
