"AR (Augmented Reality) Glass" where various information and objects emerge in the real space in front of you. Development competition is intensifying as a "post-smartphone" that can take advantage of the high-speed, large-capacity, low-latency, etc. of the next-generation communication standard "5G." For example, Facebook has released the AR glass development project "Project Aria" and is accelerating its development. It seems that Apple in the US is also promoting commercialization, and it is rumored that it may appear as early as 21 years.

The AR glasses of these two giants are still ahead, but in fact, some glasses have already reached the practical range. China's Enreal's "Nreal Light" is influential for the general public.

Nreal Light from Nreal, China. At first glance, ordinary sunglasses. Use by connecting a smartphone or an external dedicated unit

The feature is that it is used by connecting to a smartphone, and the glasses part is super lightweight at about 88g. At first glance, it doesn't feel strange when worn, as if it were ordinary sunglasses. It has already been released in South Korea for just over 60,000 yen, and it is possible that it will be launched in Japan within 20 years at the earliest. In Japan, Nreal has partnered with KDDI. The development of services that utilize Nreal Light is progressing one after another.

Experience new shopping where the house becomes a brand store as it is

--The presence of EC is rapidly increasing due to the corona virus. How does "PORTAL with Nreal", which makes full use of AR technology, evolve EC?

MESON CEO Kento Kajitani (hereinafter referred to as Mr. Kajitani) This service was developed with the theme of "making a house a store". When NrealLight is applied, various decorations and objects appear in your room, and the entire space of the brand is reproduced. A model appears in front of you, and you can see your favorite items from all angles. Only AR can actually walk closer and turn behind. Furthermore, it is a mechanism to put the product in the cart as it is and complete the purchase.

When you put on the glass, a miniature model appears in front of you, and when you select it, a life-sized model appears in the room. Point your smartphone and operate the pointer in the air

It is also assumed that you select a product, put it in the cart and purchase it as it is
