AR glasses are the latest technology that has revolutionized how we interact with our surroundings. With these glasses, we can see the world with added digital information, which seems as if the digital world is superimposed over the real world. But how do AR glasses work?

In this blog post, we will demystify how AR glasses work and answer any questions you may have.

What are AR glasses, and how do they differ from VR glasses?

AR glasses are smart glasses that overlay digital images and information over the real world, allowing the user to experience augmented reality. On the other hand, Virtual Reality (VR) glasses completely immerse the user in a simulated environment. While both AR and VR rely on 3D graphics, AR glasses provide a less immersive experience as you can still see your surroundings with them.

How do AR glasses display information?

AR glasses use microdisplays and an optical waveguide to project the digital image onto the user’s field of view. The optical waveguide in the AR glasses directs the light generated from the microdisplay to the eye, giving users the impression that the image hovers in their real-world field of view.

How do AR glasses track head movements?

As AR glasses superimpose digital information over the real-world environment, they need to track head movements accurately to ensure the digital image remains in the correct position relative to the physical world. AR glasses use a combination of sensors, such as accelerometers and gyroscopes, to measure the glasses’ orientation and movement. At the same time, the processing power provided by a microprocessor calculates each movement’s precise position.


AR glasses are the future of technology, and with the technology’s growing market, it’s no doubt that we will see more and more AR glasses in the future. While AR glasses may seem complicated, understanding how the technology works can give you a glimpse into the future of technology.

From gaming to healthcare, AR glasses offer limitless potential in the way we experience and interact with the world around us.
