Bosch is attempting to level up their AR glasses to appeal to more customers. They have moved beyond projecting images onto lenses and tried something even bolder, which is to beam these images directly to wearers’ retina by using lasers.
The AR glasses were introduced at CES this year and they require custom fitting to ensure that the lasers hit the right spots on the user’s retina. After the right fit has been achieved, the potential is endless, from beaming text, images, to notifications to the wearer’s eye. This ability reduces greatly the size of the glasses.

As reported by some early reviewers, the glasses did a pretty good job of helping the wearer’s brain to perceive images for various distances. Users can change the size of images and texts, which does not require and change in focus. The lasers can easily do so by making them seem farther or closer as needed.
This method has another benefit, which is allowing you to look away to break free from the AR experience. However, you need to get past the fear of having lasers beaming straight to your eyeballs first.
It appears that the AR glasses do not require much of preparation to start working. The reviewers said that as soon as you turned on the contextual display, you would see colorful images right away.
Apple AR glasses are also on the way, as claimed by Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst. However, he also said that users would need a compatible iPhone as the handset will be the one doing most of the work.
