Enriching our perception of real life informatively yet imaginatively is what augmented reality – or simply AR – promises us. The range of potential applications is practically unlimited! But first a look at how specialty glass perfectly fuses reality and digital worlds into one.
The challenge? Achieving a perfect symbiosis
Technology flourishes best when it feels completely natural. As for AR glasses, they are at their best when they can blend digital worlds with reality – without the hindrance of frames or distortions while providing crystal-clear images even during daylight. This is the point when augmented reality has the potential to ingeniously broaden our lives.
How can optical glass be developed to deliver an unparalleled AR experience?
With over 130 years of passion for glass.
The result is SCHOTT RealView® glass wafers made of high-purity specialty glass, which can optimally integrate digital content into the real world.
The production process of SCHOTT RealView®
Our development and production sites in Germany, Switzerland and China are prepared to deliver our outstanding optical SCHOTT RealView® glass wafers in the best quality and high quantity.
“Today, glass is our window into virtual worlds. For augmented reality, our innovative SCHOTT RealView® glass wafers provide the perfect link for merging these worlds into one.”
— Dr. Ruediger Sprengard, Head of Augmented Reality,
“Enlightened digitalization is about
understanding the internet beyond the technology and devices we use to connect. Digitalization transforms
both society and businesses into a resonating body of relationships, bonds and emotions.”
— Mathias Horx, Trend- & Future Scientist
AR has the power to revolutionize the world as we know it today
According to the representative survey survey “AR Monitor 2018,” more than half of all respondents want to use AR for everyday support in the future.
This new form of visualization can support us in so many ways :
From helping medical students learn with virtual human bodies to machine supervisors who receive visual operational support, or in live discussions with colleagues or friends from other ends of the world who appear as holograms in our homes or offices or even at a barbecue with friends, AR has what it takes to revolutionize the world as we currently know it.
Let´s create a new reality.
By producing unique high-index glass wafers as a key component for Augmented Reality devices,
we enable product engineers and designers to bring the user experience to the next level.
