Google Renews Efforts Towards Building AR Devices, OS

Share post:

Recent development shows Google’s desire to get back on track in the development of modern augmented reality research and devices.

This became clear after operating system engineering director Mark Lucovsky announced via LinkedIn he had joined Google.

He said: ‘My role is to lead the Operating System team for Augmented Reality at Google.”

Furthermore, the links to some job advertisements at Google (Senior Software Developer, Embedded, Augmented Reality OS) clearly indicate that Google is pushing ahead with its augmented reality plans.

The company describes Google’s goal in one of the listings: “Our team is building the software components that control and manage the hardware on our Augmented Reality (AR) products. These are the software components that run on the AR devices and are the closest to the hardware. As Google adds products to the AR portfolio, the OS Foundations team is the very first software team to work with new hardware.”

The job ads also state that Google is “focused on making immersive computing accessible to billions of people through mobile devices.”
