A Open Source Hardware and Software framework for Augmented reality headset, which enables makers and developers to innovate on both H/S.

Intel RealSenseā„¢, Internet of Things

Description

Have you ever considered getting an augmented reality headset? Were you also wowed at the possibility of augmented reality and looked at the price tag with a broken heart?

Yes, me too!

But that didn't stop me there. I built up my courage and instead, decided to build my own AR headset.

I really felt that augmented reality market is niche and it needs an open market. Makers and developers are the market enablers.

But the problem is that their developer kits are expensive and costs greater than $2000. So a normal maker or developer cannot afford it. So I am building this open source platform for augmented reality on both software and hardware so makers and developers can innovate together on it. The cost of building this development kit won't cost you more than $100 for a bare minimum design.

It consist of a base shield which holds a Interchangeable Core(Curie to Edison) and other expansion ports to include other sensors and devices(Temp sensor to Camera).

It has a HuD built based on Optical refraction. The HuD display can also be changed(Mono to color).
