  Google takes a big step to launch its glasses for augmented reality at the expense of Microsoft







It appears that Google is planning a fresh start regarding its augmented reality project, as sources indicated that Google has appointed a chief engineer for Microsoft's HoloLens project to work on its Project Iris for augmented reality glasses.

Bernard Chris, according to Scott Hayden of Road to VR, was set to set up in November. This was around the same time that Google decided to focus AR/VR development efforts under the roof of Google Labs (as reported by Sarah Perez of TechCrunch). Chris' title is XR (Mixed Reality) Engineering Director at Google Labs. The group is said to be led by Clay Bavour, who reports directly to Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai.

According to The Fast Company, Chris at Microsoft has worked on augmented reality engineering, mixed visual reality (displays, sensors, and imaging), optical subsystems, industrial design, and user interface for HoloLens. He also worked on Microsoft's version of HoloLens for the IVAS project for the US Army.

And with Meta, Apple, Facebook and others building the glasses that will be the primary gateway to the metaverse, a fierce war for the best talent has ensued. In this case, Microsoft appears to be the loser.
