Mini’s Augmented Reality Goggles Tested

While the goggles may look a bit goofy, I actually like Mini's take on augmented reality. The hardware used to power the goggles is pretty damn impressive as well.

Mounted on top of the thick, rubberized frame is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 805 chipset, the same one inside the Samsung Galaxy S5, running Android (4.4 Kit Kat) and using its Vuforia AR software. That processes all the information from the sensors and wireless connection inside the car, while graphics are project onto a second layer of glass through 720p screens آ– one of the reasons the goggles are so damn thick.
