After the commercial failure of Google Glass, smart glasses are back in fashion again. After a Ray-Ban/Facebook collaboration on Ray-Ban Stories, second-generation Amazon Echo Frames, Razer Anzu smart glasses and more, Xiaomi is joining the party with new technology — and the Chinese giant is claiming its product can replace your phone.
The world's largest phone manufacturer has removed the door for Xiaomi smart glasses. The company says they look like regular glasses - if you ignore the camera pointing at you - and weigh just 51g.
p Small rice-grain-sized internal display slide (2.4 mm x 2.02 mm), with separate pixels measuring 4 µm. Instead of using a small display device, like Google Glass, it uses MicroLED imaging technology. Not only does it require less space, but it also offers higher brightness and pixel density, longer life and simpler build than OLED.
These glasses use a combination of light wave conduction and refraction technology to reflect light. Infinite rays allow the user to see an entire image, all using a single lens.
confirms Xiaomi says its glasses are nothing more than a secondary screen for your smartphone. Users can view initial notifications and contact information along with navigation, remote application, and real-time translation of text and images. There is also a 5-megapixel camera for taking pictures and a built-in microphone. As with similar products, the indicator light turns on when the camera is in use.
It all comes with a quad-core ARM processor, battery, touch screen, Wi-Fi/Bluetooth modules, and Android operating system. Also available with Xiaomi XiaoAI Assistant. While Xiaomi claims it will replace smartphones, a monochromatic green screen — enough light to pass through complex optical structures — seems unlikely to those who have just sold their flagship products above $1,000 and expect a similar experience.
We do not yet know the price, release date or availability of the Xiaomi smart glasses.
