Smart glasses, smarter designs

Such innovation isn’t limited to finished products. Yes, new technologies have resulted in increasingly complex and impressive architectural models. However, new tech also allows architects to perform tasks with increased precision and efficiency.

In the near future, smart glasses will allow designers to realize their creations via interactive, virtual images. Using augmented reality, blueprints, building plans and schematics can become 3D holograms, only visible through smart glass lenses.

The list of benefits is endless. Architects can visually test different building components on the fly.

Eventually, smart glasses will become a must in the world of structural design.
