With the continuously-increasing release of new technologies and digital products, it can be hard to keep track of what’s going to be huge in the years to come. Luckily, we’ve compiled a list of the top 5 digital releases for 2022 you won’t want to miss out on. Take a look at these top digital releases for 2022 and fascinating technologies that are set to launch next year.
1) Oculus rift’s touch controllers
Oculus touch is a pair of tracked controllers that enable you to bring your hands into VR, letting you interact naturally with objects and characters. Touch lets you create, share, and experience VR in new ways. With these controllers, you’ll be able to explore freely while feeling natural and unrestricted by an Xbox controller or other input device. The controllers feature traditional action buttons, thumb-sticks, and analog triggers that add familiarity to new experiences. And haptic feedback will make it feel like you’re grasping and manipulating objects in real life.
2) Apple’s augmented reality glasses
In late 2020, rumors began circulating that Apple was hard at work on a pair of augmented reality glasses. These rumors were confirmed in early 2021 with a patent filing. The AR glasses will feature an iPhone-like processor, onboard battery and data storage, GPS, cameras, and sensors for motion tracking. They are expected to be released sometime in 2022. No price has been announced yet. Some experts speculate that they could cost anywhere from $200-$500. It’s also possible they’ll be subsidized by wireless carriers or even bundled into a cell phone plan much like today’s smartphones are often offered today.
3) Microsoft’s Hololens 3D Headset
4) Facebook’s Portal video chat device
In 2022. Facebook released a device that allows users to video chat with other people in their homes, while they are out and about. The device works by allowing you to mount your phone on top of it, which then displays a screen for you and whoever is on video chat with you at home. The device also has built-in speakers and microphones so that both parties can hear each other clearly, even if they are in different rooms or different parts of their house.
5) Google glass refresh
The upgrade would feature an overall faster processor and an improved camera, but not much else. The device will likely remain standalone, so don’t expect anything too impressive. However, there may also be some changes to help improve battery life. There is a good chance that Google Glass 2.0 will come with Android 5.0 or later pre-installed, making it easier for users to sync their devices with their Google accounts daily. It is also likely that Google Glass 2.0 will come with a more efficient user interface that can be controlled by voice commands and head gestures rather than just touch controls as seen in version 1.0 of Google Glasses.
These days, it seems like every week brings a new digital release. It’s hard to keep up with all of them, but the above list is a good place to start. If you’re looking for something fresh and exciting. Remember, if you want to get your hands on any of these releases, make sure that you pre-order before they come out.
