Question: Is the MSG Sphere an example of Augmented Reality?
Yes, according to the Las Vegas Sun:
It’s not designed for sports, but rather for concerts and other immersive experiences. And as such, it’s being designed with the advanced tech needed to provide these immersive experiences, including future augmented reality offerings. First Figura says SmartLite now has the industrial process to complete "medium series" projects in house.
Then he says:
Vision Systems is also working on a dedicated business model for glassmakers to integrate the dimmable solution under Smart Lite’s supervision, for large-series projects. I'm guessing the Sphere would qualify as a large-series project and one of their partners would make the glass And if they landed it, they'd use Gauzy's film.
New players are entering the market, like Gauzy that recently chose a strategic implantation in Germany to address the European market. That helps in making the technology more visible and attractive to big industrial players, and that will help to reduce the costs of such solutions.They also come with wider films, which will allow us to provide new solutions for the yacht or train markets. Finally:
The smart glass industry will always go smarter, and Smart Lite will continue to provide new functions, such as integrated information display, video projection, lighting… Could 1.8 meter SPD film play a role in their "advanced tech" design?
