Microsoft Research is making strides in its augmented reality technology, with the company showing off new prototype AR glasses.

The new AR glasses currently feature an 80-degree field of view, and will correct for the wearer's astigmatism, which allow virtual objects to be viewed through AR glasses, all without additional corrective lenses.

The team wrote in a research paper on the prototype: "In future work, we plan to integrate all these capabilities into a single hardware device while expanding the exit pupil to create a practical stereo display".
