  • Google is Busy Tinkering Away with an Augmented Reality Device

Google is reportedly working on a standalone augmented reality headset "A65" with new Qualcomm chips to rival Microsoft’s HoloLens

Google has an element of genius to it and the giant organization is currently working on an AR headset that contains Qualcomm microchips. This device will be created under Google’s guidance by a computer company from Taiwan that goes by the name of Quanta.

All of this is still in its preliminary stages. This AR headset bears an uncanny resemblance to Microsoft’s HoloLens. The latter came to the fore two years ago. It was applicable in the fields of designing, training, and industry.

As for the Google headset, it will be autonomous and fueled by a Qualcomm chip. It won’t be attached to any other external machine.

This headset will also have cameras and microphones as a fundamental part of it. It will bear the name Google A65. It still remains in its early phase of construction, according to documents obtained by WinFuture (via The Verge).

So it will be some time before it appears in reality in the marketplace. This headset will be a far cry from the HoloLens. Nevertheless, it will employ the same microchips. HoloLens will be upgraded sometime in 2018. Among the revamping program will be a novel ARM-fueled design and a better range of view.

The Qualcomm chips happen to be termed QSC603 four core chips. They are firmly embedded in ARM architecture. Google has a pre-existent AR headset termed Google Glass which came out five years ago.

It got some transformations in its structure in 2017. It is basically a state-of-the-art heads-up display and camera unlike HoloLens with its mixed reality features.
