The researchers at KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology) announced that they developed a head-mounted display 30 times faster processing speed compared to that of Google Glass. ‘K-Glass’, developed by Yoo Hoi-Jun, Professor of Electrical Engineering at KAIST and his team, is a high-performance, extremely low-powered head-mounted display (HMD) containing an augmented reality (AR) chip 30x faster and with 3x to 12x longer operating time than Google Glass. K-Glass developed by a team of researchers at KAIST. Despite the sensation that Google created with its Project Glass in May 2012, Google Glass had many problems.
