Augmented reality (AR) has revolutionized everything from gaming in the form of the popular game Pokemon Go to the medical world in the form of surgery tech. And, if this year’s CES event is any indication, there will be plenty more industries affected by AR in the future.
One company in particular that was exhibiting at the show, DreamWorld, looks to use AR in a number of different ways with their innovative DreamGlass headset. In this exclusive, bite-sized interview with DreamWorld Founder and CEO Kevin Zhong from CES 2019, we discuss the many potential uses for DreamGlass as well as the importance of jumping from 2D to 3D.
Residential Tech Today: What are you showcasing at this year’s event?
Kevin Zhong: We are showing our DreamGlass, which is a new augmented reality glass. The specialty is that it is three times bigger than the other brands. Also, it’s very affordable and very lightweight, very comfortable to wear.
RT Today: It seems like the device would be beneficial for city planning and architecture. Was that in mind during the initial stages?
KZ: Yes. Actually, city planning and architecture are great potential applications. Also, another thing we have been doing with our customers for educational purposes for training, because then you can put a 3D model with the mountains and manipulate it. Also, because of the AR, you can see your teachers, classmates, and coworkers. You can communicate throughout the process.
RT Today: What are you hoping people draw from their experience with DreamGlass?
KZ: So, right now everything is becoming more multi-dimensional. Everything jumps from 2D to 3D. If you have that in your hands, it enhances your capability to understand concepts more or communicate better. So, I think the beauty of AR is always to show the 3D content together with the reality so you can always have a connection with your friends, with your family, and then enjoy this new 3D world together.
