DaystAR is Lenovo's New Concept Design For An AR Headset

DaystAR is Lenovo's New Concept Design For An AR Headset”

"Lenovo is no longer a computer firm but a computing firm", Yang Yuanqing, Lenovo's chairman, said during the Lenovo Tech World 2017 conference held in Shanghai today. The device appears to be full standalone with an onboard vision processing unit, optical display, and free-formed surfaced lenses that allow for a 40-degree field of view (FOV), which is similar to the FOV on Microsoft's HoloLens.

You might know Lenovo for its laptops and Yogabooks, but the electronics maker is apparently used to conjuring up some pretty far-out concepts much more exciting than a 2-in-1. The headset need not be connected to a phone or a PC to depend on system performance or hardware boosting. The whole AR experience is meant to feed off Lenovo's own AR development platform and offer users 3D object recognition, multiplayer and distance VR/AR interaction, as well as 3D content management.

This is the second time that Lenovo has delved into the AR segment as the company had previously collaborated with Disney on a Star Wars-themed HoloChess and light-saber focused experience.

As it's just a concept at this stage few other details have been released regarding the specifications of the headset. The headset showcased was also shown to come in four metallic colors. The market already offers top-shelf devices, such as Amazon's Echo speakers and the Google Home; attractive VR/AR headsets, such as the Oculus Rift; and clever software, in the likes of Alexa, Siri or Google Assistant. Lenovo says that the device would be useful in educational applications. Secondly, the concept smart speaker-projector, called the SmartCast+, also gives an impression of a not-all-that-thought-trough gadget. The company intends to develop CAVA's deep learning to enable thorough facial recognition and intelligent understanding of your behaviour. It consists of a total of 10 sensors that are built into the smart clothing. The vest records ECG signals 24/7, and alerts users if it finds any abnormalities like tachycardia or atrial fibrillation.
