Xiaomi Launches Smart Glasses With Calling, Navigation Features: Know Details Here
New Delhi: Xiaomi has launched new Smart Glasses as its first new smart eye wearable device. The Xiaomi Smart Glasses seem like normal sunglasses but are embedded with sensors and an imaging system to enable various smart features including navigation and real-time text translation.
Xiaomi’s Smart Glasses are powered by a quad-core ARM processor and run on Android. They also use MicroLED imaging technology, which is known for having a higher brightness and longer lifespan than OLED. The company says the technology has a simpler structure that enabled it to create a compact display with individual pixels sized at 4μm. You won’t be able to view the images you take in color, though — Xiaomi says it opted to use a monochrome display solution “to allow sufficient light to pass through complicated optical structures.”
These smart glasses come with a MicroLED imaging technology that helps them make look like a normal pair of glasses. The maker has used a 0.13-inch MicroLED display on the Smart Glasses that weigh 51 grams. MicroLEDs also have a high pixel density and allow for a more compact display and easier screen integration. The company also claimed to have used a display chip on the display that is around the size of a grain of rice. The display is monochrome, and it can reach a peak brightness of 2 million nits. The company also claims to have used an optical waveguide technology to “transmit light beams to the human eye through the microscopic grating structure of the optical waveguide lens.”
Its smart glasses won’t be just a second screen for your phone, according to Xiaomi. It’s independently capable of many things, such as selecting the most important notifications to show you, including smart home alarms and messages from important contacts. The device’s navigation capability can display maps and directions in front of your eyes. It can also show you the number of whoever’s currently calling your phone, and you can take the call using the smart glasses’ built-in mic and speakers.
The mic will be able to pick up speech, as well, which Xiaomi’s proprietary translating algorithm can translate in real-time. The glasses’ translation feature also works’ on written text and text on photos captures through its camera. Unfortunately, the company has yet to announce a price or a launch date for the glasses, but we’ll keep you updated when it does.
The Chinese giant explained that its grating structure on the inner surface of the lens allows the light to be refracted safely into the human eye, and let it see a complete image. Xiaomi also shared a video of the Smart Glasses that shows the display is in front of the eyes, and it looks quite futuristic. Have a look:
