Default AR glasses as future display tech

Considering Apple, Microsoft, are doubling don on AR glasses over the next few years, I was wondering what you guys thought about the tech and if it can replace all screens we currently use in our day to day lives. Obviously in the context of this section, I am concerned specifically with HT screens such as projectors or OLED TVs.

With these tech companies suggesting we could abandon our tv screen and have a display the size of our choosing, if this tech makes it mainstream, surely the TV set is under threat?

I can't see it happening steedeel and it will also give the person wearing the glasses terrible headache if they are looking at a double source.

Was not that the main reason why 3-D died at home? No one wanted to wear glasses for a 2 hour movie, let alone using the glasses all day.

Glasses would be the real world as you see it with glasses with the ability to interact and view computer generated images on top. You can see the world around you and you are not cut off from anything. So no, I donít think the two compare.

Thought I would bump this thread after reading news that a appleís AR glasses have reached phase 2 (of 3).

One of the potential uses of these glasses would be the ability to lock a virtual display in place in oneís living room/ family room.
When we get to that stage,why bother with a tv when we can have a virtual screen of say, 60-80 inches?

Depending on timelines, it could render the talk of microLED tv screens mute.
Why pay hundreds or thousands when you can simply have that virtual screen locked against your wall via the AR glasses?

Canít believe more people donít want to discuss this. The potential for a 100-150 inch screen via glasses. It could eliminate the need for all screens by 2030

Better idea. Lets eliminate proclamations made on the Internet about what people need or don't need by 2030.

So, does that mean we eliminate talk of Micro LED? Itís not here yet for the masses but itís coming.

The section is for new display technology. Thatís exactly what this is. It also has the potential to replace actual tv screens and projectors. That conversation is coming whether you like it or not.

The Royole Moon and the upcoming Cinera Edge Pro headsets tho not AR glasses are supposed to show the equivalent of a 120” and a 175” 16:9 HD OLED screen respectively at 10’/3m. They come with integrated headphones but headphone-less versions could be made by them or others. AR glasses would dispense with the visual isolation.

Thatís why I think they could be huge.
