Smart Glasses V/s VR Headset, Who will win the race of technology?

Smart Glasses were the first to come in the limelight when Google launched its unimaginable wearable technology that notified every update in front of your eyes. Similarly, VR Headset is an innovation in wearable technology. Among these two, which technology would be a success and which would fail in the future? What do you think?

Smart Glasses feature one-of-its-kind technology. Its users  can wear it to get the latest updates and information directly in front of their vision. ‘Google Glasses’ was counted among the smartest, comfortable product released in the smart techno market. However, it had a slow pick up, and later it failed to reach the masses due to some technical complications. Although, it does not mean Smart Glasses are dead.

Another advanced  technology, Augmented Reality gave rise to a new product, VR Headset. Ample of new projects on Kickstarter reflected the success of VR technology. There are chances of VR hampering the success of Smart Glasses. But, if the project is delayed, then there are chances of Smart Glasses to still survive in the market. Ultimately, what matters is the product that can  easily reach its target group with simple usability. VR Headset is doing this in a right way.

Google Glasses is a smart project. Having portable smart glasses can make life much easier. VR headset is more focused on entertaining the audience. Did you know games are the first platform to adopt VR Headset widely? Smart Glasses do not fit in this category.

VR Headset is also adopted by many startups to deliver product information, ease the service profiling or entertaining the employees. In the current scenario, VR Headset is a step ahead compared to Smart Glasses due to usability and entertainment factor. You need to wait and watch future who finally wins the race.
