Xiaomi has announced the Xiaomi Smart Glasses, the company’s first smart eyewear gadget. The Xiaomi Smart Glasses resemble regular sunglasses, but they contain sensors and an image system that enable a variety of smart capabilities such as navigation and real-time text translation. The Xiaomi Smart Glasses are small and light, weighing only 51 grammes, and feature an unique MicroLED optical waveguide technology that displays messages and notifications right in front of your eyes, according to the company. The Xiaomi Smart Glasses are also believed to be able to conduct phone calls, provide augmented reality (AR) navigation, record images, and translate text in real time.
The new Xiaomi Smart Glasses have been introduced, however there is no word on cost or availability. The wearable will most likely launch in China initially, before expanding to other areas. Xiaomi’s new Smart Glasses will compete with Facebook’s Ray-Ban Stories smart glasses, which were just released. Facebook has taken the classic Wayfarer frames and combined them with smart components to offer a variety of features.
Xiaomi Smart Glasses have a squarish frame with a band that runs across the top. The band that rests on top of the ears is a little thicker than usual, and it’s probably full of sensors. As previously stated, the glasses use MicroLED imaging technology to reduce the amount of design space required in structural design as well as the device’s total weight. MicroLEDs, according to Xiaomi, have a better pixel density and a more straightforward structure. This enables for a more compact display as well as simpler integration with other screens. It has a display chip that is only 2.4×2.02mm in size. Xiaomi claims that the display is around the size of a grain of rice under a microscope, with individual pixels measuring 4m.
The new Xiaomi Smart Glasses are lightweight at 51 grammes and support voice commands via the XiaoAI AI assistant. The ‘main interaction method’ is referred to as such. Only the most critical notifications will be displayed by the glasses. Smart home alerts, vital information from business apps, and messages from important contacts, for example, will be prioritised. The new glasses have a built-in dual beamforming microphone and speaker that may be used for phone calls. Furthermore, Xiaomi Smart Glasses can display real-time maps and highways in front of you, allowing you to keep your eyes on the road safely and comfortably.
