Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers have combined computer vision and wireless perception into X-AR, an augmented reality (AR) headset that can visualize hidden objects.

X-AR employs radio frequency (RF) signals to find concealed items with RF identification tags; those items are represented by a transparent sphere to guide headset wearers to their locations.

The system confirms that users have retrieved the correct object once it is in their hand.

Tests in a warehouse-like setting showed X-AR could localize hidden items to within 9.8 centimeters (3.8 inches) on average, while verifying that users retrieved the correct item 96% of the time.
