The Prism uses your iPhone’s array of sensors to make affordable see-through AR content a reality.

Mira Prism is Microsoft’s Hololens on a budget

To make advanced AR more accessible to the masses, Mira, an augmented reality start-up, has come up with a novel solution. Taking inspirations from smartphone-dependent VR headsets like Samsung Gear VR and Google Daydream View, Mira has come up with a smartphone-dependent AR kit by the name of Prism. Just like VR headsets, Prism requires the smartphone, particularly an iPhone for now, to work. The user has to put his/her iPhone into the headset and use the included controller to interact with AR elements. This makes it easy for anyone to gain access to Hololens-levels of AR content by paying a quarter of its price.

Mobile device manufacturers are investing billions of dollars into creating products that aim to provide an unparalleled user experience.The incursion of Augmented Reality in daily life has been on a rise in the recent times. However, that translates into higher product and service costs for the users, which prevents a quick adoption of this new technology. Take Microsoft’s Hololens for example, which is one of the best products in the Augmented Reality segment but comes at a steep price of around $4000 and is exclusively meant for developers.
