Samsung is working on a pair of augmented reality (AR) glasses, a new patent suggests. The patent application filed at the USPTO illustrates the concept, which looks like any other regular eyeglasses. The patent goes on to describe how a pair of smart glasses could work in real life. 

As described in the patent, a projector is mounted in the frame adjacent to one eye, which then projects an image directly onto the lens. The patent submitted by Samsung also shows that ARM-based processors could power the glasses. Interestingly, the glasses automatically switches on when it’s unfolded. Advertising As with everything, this is just a concept presented by Samsung, so there’s no guarantee such a device could ever launch in the future. But yes, it does offer a glimpse at how the company envisions the smart glasses of the future.  It might also be that the company does not reveal a pair of AR glasses at all. Companies like Samsung and Apple regularly file applications for products that never make it to the market
