Design of New AR Glasses in Cool Industry Class

In the Cool Industry class of the postgraduate course Industrial Design, with teachers Alfred van Elk and Niels Mulder, new concepts and products were developed for AR Glasses / Goggles.

It will probably only function indoors for now; due to the effect the changing weather conditions have on the light intensity.
