“5G and augmented reality have the potential to transform gaming, education, training, the way we communicate and more,” said John Saw, executive vice president of advanced and emerging technologies at T- Mobile. “With the T-Mobile Accelerator, we’re partnering with the brightest developers and entrepreneurs to advance the 5G ecosystem and bring groundbreaking new applications powered by 5G to life.”

As North America’s premier 5G launch partner for Snapdragon Spaces, T-Mobile Accelerator is working to fuel 5G innovation for AR smart glasses by leveraging heads-up displays, spatial awareness, and vision by computer in all sectors. Participants work directly with T-Mobile engineers and business leaders while using Lenovo ThinkReality A3 augmented reality smart glasses – the first device to support Snapdragon Spaces. Experts from Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. will also provide support for solutions built on the Snapdragon Spaces platform.

This incoming group is preceded by other participants including Beem, Krikey, Mawari, Mohx-Games, Pluto and VictoryXR. T-Mobile is also currently accepting applications from developers interested in creating immersive 5G experiences for AR glasses on Snapdragon Spaces.

Industry analyst firm GlobalData1 estimates that the AR and VR market will grow nearly 20-fold over the 10-year period between 2020 and 2030. Because augmented reality provides more accessible services, including ease of use via web services or smartphones (as opposed to bulkier virtual reality headsets), the augmented reality market has an advantage over the virtual reality market, according to GlobalData.
