Xiaomi AR Glasses
Xiaomi has recently unveiled its latest AR concept, the Xiaomi Wireless AR Smart Glass Explorer Edition, at the Mobile World Congress 2023 in Barcelona. It’s a prototype – still early reviewers have praised its design functionality.
A standout feature of the Xiaomi Smart Glass is its wireless connectivity, which sets it apart from other consumer AR glasses, such as nReal and TCL, which require a cable to be plugged into a host device. These AR glasses provide an immersive wireless AR experience by pairing to your phone or any other device, without the need for wires or dongles. However, since they don’t come with any built-in storage, the glasses must be connected to a host device in order to function. The glasses are equipped with a pair of Micro-OLED screens, one for each eye, that display full HD visuals at a brightness of 1,200 nits. They also feature three forward-facing cameras that map the environment immediately in front of the wearer. It also includes electrochromic lenses that can be switched to black with the press of a button, which allows the user to switch on and off to a more immersive mode.
While the Xiaomi Wireless AR Smart Glass Explorer Edition is a promising prototype, it is worth noting that it is significantly bulkier than the future smart glasses concept teased by the company earlier this year, which was closer to the size of traditional glasses. However, the Xiaomi glasses are still more polished and less clunky than other AR glasses in the market, despite being on a concept level. However, the battery life was, according to testers, less than impressive and may be one of the factors contributing to why the prototype is not yet considered ready for consumer release. Nonetheless, the Xiaomi Wireless AR Smart Glass Explorer Edition represents an exciting innovation in the field of wearable technology and could potentially pave the way for a new generation of AR glasses. As technology continues to evolve, we can expect to see more innovations in the field and the Xiaomi Smart Glass is an early indication of what is to come.
