Are New Foldable Phones Preparing Us for a Future in Augmented Reality?



The Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X just gave us a glimpse of the future with their new foldable phones. This is a fresh new innovative start in the phone market being that over time we haven't seen any real amazing new innovations. Though with the hype around these phones it will be a minute till we will start seeing them on the street is that they are being retailed at $2000. With all the attention these phones are getting within the tech world you'll soon see other phone companies trying to hop on the new wave very soon.

For the past couple of years, we have seen a trend in the phone industry. Phones are getting bigger with wider screens and may not be just a trend but could be leading us to a future with VR and AR contacts and glasses. VR or virtual reality is a computer simulated world that puts you in a computer-generated reality, i.e. oculus gaming while AR or Augmented reality layers computer-generated enhancements atop an existing reality in order to make it more meaningful through the ability to interact with it as Pokemon go. In the near future, we could possibly see a market where AR and VR eyewear is mainstream like our cellphones now


People remember the google glasses that came out earlier this decade but didn't catch on as people thought. That may be coming back in the future in a big way but with different innovations like Smart contacts where you put contacts in and you would see a lot of computer-generated objects pop up in front of your very eyes. This might sound like a Sci-Fi movie but could very much potentially happen to be how convent it could be in the future. The purpose of these technologies would be great for companies who want to sell a product to a customer and convey a message so easily, your walking past urban outfitters and an ad pops up right in your face about these new pants that just came out.

Its like have your cell phone in your eyes at all times, always receiving information day by day without reaching in your pocket to check something. This sounds pretty scary at first but thinks about how the cell-phone and social media might have sounded to someone from 1985, its a new invention that could possibly be coming to us soon.
