The Oculus Rift and Gear VR are exciting devices that introduce people to a virtual reality that appears tangible; yet the Meta 1 glasses introduces another future of digital interaction that is based more on the idea augmented reality. Meta 1 is a pair of transparent glasses that when worn overlays the natural world with virtual information that heightens an experience in a meaningful way.

For instance, the Meta 1 can be used during presentations that fill in gaps or shows visuals in a way that is not distracting, but simply more enlightening. Tech Crunch writes that the Meta 1 wants "to create a better way for people to be able to work together and see the same things, collaborate on the same objects and be present in their work together."
