The AR Bar technology is a massive wearable that offers a unique mixed reality experience. The project North-Star headset was created by Leap Motion. The headset carries two low-persistence displays that mainly operate at 120 frames per second. It supports virtual manipulation of objects without any special gloves. This is through the 180-degree hand-tracking sensor. The final prototype should run only about 100 US Dollar.
This technology was unveiled to the great anticipation of many. It is mainly driven by a mission to provide high-tech products at affordable prices. The headset offers the option of direct and stunning manipulation of various virtual objects with only one’s hands, blurring the lines between what’s real and not real in fun and challenging ways.
The headset design uses two fast-refreshing 3.5-inch LCD displays with a resolution of 1600×1440 per eye. The displays reflect their light onto a visor that the user perceives as a transparent overlay. Leap Motion says this offers a field of view that’s 95 degrees high and 70 degrees wide, larger than most AR systems that exist today.
