Samsung may be developing foldable augmented reality glasses

Patently Apple first noticed one of Samsung's latest patent applications which indicated that the Korean giant is exploring the possibility of developing augmented reality glasses. Allegedly, the documentation that Samsung submitted to the US Patent & Trademark Office shows a pair of foldable AR glasses that look quite similar to typical glasses, but have thicker frames to accomodate the device's electronic components.

In its initial stages, which may be subject to change later, the eyepiece automatically switches on every time it is unfolded. As long as one of the eyepiece's temples is unfolded, the glass's projector which is mounted on the temple will beam images on a small display which is placed over the wearer's FOV (field of view). 

To ensure that the device doesn't accidently turn off if the user turns their head wrong, the company may be utilising magnetic sensors that make sure the glasses remain in the unfolded position until the user manually folds them. 

However, there is a real possibility that the patent application may never go through, so Samsung hasn't discussed the exact components they intend to utilise. In case it does go through, they cited ARM-based processors as an example of the kind of tech the device might use.
