Samsung may be developing foldable augmented reality glasses

Samsung examines the innovation inside out and Samsung is not constraining themselves to the specific frame shape shown in its filing or a way that the AR glasses might operate. Believed to have been spotted first by Patently Mobile, the device looks more like a standard pair of glasses, if only a bit on the bulkier side, rather than full-blown wraparound headsets like the Microsoft HoloLens and Magic Leap One.

The AR glasses will be using a waveguide that can diffract the projection so as to exude 3D depth, in order to display a translucent image that would appear over the user's field of vision.

Moreover, this is a patent and it does not necessarily follow that Samsung will mandatorily release AR glasses. It would turn off automatically when the temple frame was closed therefore conserving the device's battery.

As per a report by VentureBeat, "Given the normal movements of a wearer's head, keeping the projector from jittering on and off during frame jostles would be important".

JetBlue flight evacuated at Newark airport after suspicious item reported, officials say
At 720 am, a flight attendant on board JetBlue Flight 573 to Tampa observed suspicious item on board plane prior to takeoff. The plane, which was expected to take off at about 7:45 a.m., was surrounded by police vehicles at about 8 a.m.

The tech giant didn't specify what components it intends to use since it's just a patent application that may never come to fruition.

Samsung's patent can possibly contain all sorts of processors such as standalone ARM chips and/or more dependent processors, and all sorts of wireless technology including short-range ones (Bluetooth) and/or long-range ones (Cellular).

As always with a patent application, this isn't a guarantee that such a product is ever going to reach the market - but it does give us an indication of how Samsung is thinking in regards to future product launches.
