(CNET) Bose has announced an augmented-reality platform to support audio and set up a $50 million venture fund to support it. Bose is calling it the first “audio augmented platform” and says its Bose AR prototype — “glasses to hear” — is the future of mobile sound.
For now the glasses won’t be available to consumers, a Bose spokesperson told CNET, just to developers and manufacturers (the Bose AR SDK, and limited quantities of a refined and updated version of the Bose AR glasses, will be available this summer). It’s unclear when they will be available to consumers or how much they’ll cost. Bose also didn’t say whether you’ll be able to get a prescription lens put in them.
