Amazon wants augmented reality to be headset-free


Augmented reality (AR) isn’t all headsets and funny glasses . Amazon wants to turn it into something that you can interact with in your living room, judging by a couple of the company’s recently approved patents. The ” object tracking ” patent shows how a system of projectors and cameras could beam virtual images onto real objects, and track your hand while you interact with them. The other, called ” reflector-based depth mapping , ” would use a projector to transform your room into a kind of holodeck, mapping the depth of objects and bodies in a room.
