(MediaPost) Most AR devices shipped globally will be basic assisted reality glasses in the next two years. However, between 2018 and 2022, the majority of AR devices shipped will shift toward mixed reality headsets, according to a new study by Tractica. By 2022, nearly 23 million augmented reality or mixed reality glasses will be sold per year — up from 150,000 last year, according to the study.
Tractica defines assisted reality glasses as glasses that “layer digital images onto the real world without any specific knowledge of the environment” and mixed reality headsets as headsets that have “positional tracking and depth sensors to provide a more immersive experience, enabling interactions with holographic objects.”
