Augmented reality glasses have been the next big wearable tech frontier for years, and it looks like they’ll hit a tipping point in 2021.

  • Apple was planning to be in the smart glasses business by 2023, but rumors of a first appearance by Apple Glass in 2021 already emerged earlier this year.
  • Facebook has announced its plans to launch a smart glasses product in 2021, though the tech behemoth has the added challenge of convincing people to actually trust them.
  • And LG is getting in on the action too, hoping that an ultra-light prototype in the works for next year will convince users to switch over to their setup.

It makes sense why these tech companies and many others are hustling to be the early bird of the industry: ABI Research predicts that AR glasses will be a $100 billion market by 2023.

However, there was some other recent AR news that caught my attention. And maybe it caught yours as well since you’re now reading this article?
