Google has been working on some new AR models for a while and they plan to field-test these devices in public.
We can expect to see these devices being used by Google engineers as they will begin testing them publicly next month.
However, testing in a lab setting only has its limitations. So starting next month, we plan to test AR models in the real world. This will allow us to better understand how these devices help people in their daily lives. And as we develop experiences like AR navigation, it will help us take into account factors like weather and crowded intersections — which can be difficult, and sometimes impossible, to completely recreate indoors.
We’ll start a small-scale test in public with AR prototypes worn by a few dozen Googlers and select trusted testers. These prototypes will include in-lens displays, microphones and cameras – but will have strict limitations on what they can do. For example, AR prototypes do not support photography and video, although the image data will be used to enable experiences such as translating a menu in front of you or showing you directions to a nearby coffee shop.
