Will Facebook's AR glasses click with end users?

The world’s largest social networking site, Facebook, has confirmed it’s working on augmented reality (AR) glasses, which will complement its Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) headset.

While VR headsets have software that presents an interactive, immersive virtual world, AR headsets use either screens or transparent lenses to place digital items atop the real world.

The Google Glass Enterprise Edition features a similar design as the original, with some upgraded hardware.

Then there are promising startups like Magic Leap and Thalmic Labs Inc. that are starting to release their first headsets and glasses.

The headsets will attach to a small box called the Lightpack worn on a belt that contains the processor and graphics card.

However, experts feel the problem with Facebook’s AR glasses is the company may face some privacy concerns.
