South Korean researchers develop HMD 30 times faster than Google Glass
A group of researchers from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) have developed a device similar to Google Glass but is way faster and more efficient. The new head-mounted display (HMD) is called K-Glass, according to VentureBeat.
Professor Yoo Hoi-Jun, the head of the K-Glass team and a Professor of Electrical Engineering at KAIST, remarked: "There has been a growing interest in HMDs as the next-generation mobile device. As the optical see-through HMD implements AR (augmented reality), many aspects of our lives including education and entertainment will undergo substantial changes."
Professor Yoo and his team designed the K-Glass to require an extremely low level of power and to run 30 times faster that the Google Glass. In addition, it also has a battery life of up to 24 hours, which is 12 times longer than that of its bigger rival, the report detailed.
According to Liberty Voice, K-Glass can be used the whole day, unlike the Google Glass. Yoo's device works in a way similar to the process of the human brain. Therefore, it only presents relevant data to the user and takes up a considerably lower amount of energy, the report explained.
Yoo's time has not yet come up with a target application for the K-Glass, Liberty Voice reported.
