Monitorless is a remote-control VR/AR solution that enables consumers to use devices such as smartphones and PCs without a monitor. The solution consists of a special pair of glasses that resemble regular sunglasses. They are used to view content from other devices such as smartphones and PCs and can be used for both Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality functionality thanks to the electro chromic glass featured on the glasses.
Samsung will be presenting a few new VR/AR projects coming direct from their in-house incubator Creative Lab (C-Lab).
Samsung will be showing off four new conceptual products, including a new VR/AR head-mounted display, a smart aid for visually impaired people, a VR home furnishing solution and a 360-degree video platform focused on virtual tourism.
With its integrated CPU, special lenses, projector, battery, speaker and Wi-Fi module capable of tethering with your devices via Wi-Fi Direct, Monitorless promises to provide the user with an up-close and personal view of your smartphone or PC. Samsung says it can be used for augmented reality and virtual reality thanks to the electrochromic glass that can block out external light on demand. Samsung hasn’t said yet if the headset will have access to made-for-VR content, or if it simply a bespoke screen mirroring device.
