Computer glasses functioning as a standalone wearable device that provides audiovisual experiences through the combination of physical and virtual environments. The glasses stimulate human senses, triggering the brain to feel immersed in simulations that play with the human perception of reality.

XR glasses can encompass experiences ranging from Augmented Reality (AR), Mixed Reality (MR), and VR (Virtual Reality). To create immersive digital content, the glasses are mounted with electronic varifocal, dynamic lenses, and Near-Eye Displays, enabling different degrees of extended reality experiences, including virtual occlusion, which allows for digital objects to intertwine with varying layers of the physical world. Current developments integrate next-generation SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping), environment and biometric sensors, and eye trackers into the glasses.

Beyond gaming, this solution is being applied in education and training, medical practices, workspaces, industrial engineering, and supply chain management.
