Xiaomi has unveiled new the Xiaomi Smart Glasses – its first new smart eye wearable device.

The Xiaomi Smart Glasses have a squarish frame with a band running on top. The band that sits on top of the ears is slightly thick, presumably laden with sensors. 

The Xiaomi Smart Glasses are lightweight, weighing 51 grams and integrate a new MicroLED optical waveguide technology to display messages and notifications in front of your eyes, the company said. The Xiaomi Smart Glasses are also said to be able to make calls, offer navigation using augmented reality (AR), capture photos, and translate text right before your eyes.

According to Xiaomi, the wearable is able to do independent operations like navigation, take photos, act as a teleprompter, and offer real-time text and photo translations.

Xiaomi says that the Xiaomi Smart Glasses are also capable of transcribing audio into text with translations in real-time. Other features include a quad-core ARM processor, a touchpad, and support for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth run on the Android operating system.

Chinese Startup Rokid Sees Opportunity With COVID-Fighting Smart Glasses

"A Chinese startup that develops augmented-reality products for use in manufacturing and gaming has found a promising growth area in the midst of a global pandemic - wearable glasses that measure temperatures on the move."

A Chinese startup that develops augmented-reality products for use in manufacturing and gaming has found a promising growth area in the midst of a global pandemic - wearable glasses that measure temperatures on the move.

Rokid Established in 2014, specializes in the research and product development of Mixed Reality and Artificial Intelligence. Rokid provides the extreme user experience, superior products, and robust enterprise solutions for developing communities. 

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak in late 2019, Hangzhou-based startup Rokid developed a pair of glasses to help screen for symptoms. Rokid Vice President Xiang Wenjie says demand has risen for the company's T1 glasses, developed in only two weeks after it sold roughly 1,000 pairs to governments, industrial parks, and schools.

"Apart from fixed temperature measurement, T1 can provide portable, distant, and prompt temperature checking, which would be a great help," Xiang said.

Equipped with an infrared sensor and a camera, the glasses allow the wearer to "see" peoples' temperatures.

Rokid says on its website that it completed a round of "billion-dollar" financing in 2018, led by Singapore state investor Temasek, Swiss bank Credit Suisse, and others.

Rokid is not the only Chinese tech startup involved in the fight against COVID-19. Thermal imaging systems made by face recognition giant SenseTime have been installed in railway stations across China.

Chinese NReal AR Glasses To Be Bundled With Samsung Galaxy Note20 And LG Velvet In South Korea

23rd September 2021
"The types of applications are limitless, and with South Korea a leader in 5G, there should be some very useful apps developed."

In January 2019, Beijing-based startup nReal were starting to get attention from the west after a successful showing augmented reality (AR) glasses at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.                                     

The glasses, named Light, appears to have achieved mainstream recognition, because starting today, the glasses will be sold in South Korea as an optional bundle package alongside both Samsung and LG’s newest smartphones through the carrier LG Uplus.

When nReal cofounder Chi Xu was interviewed, he said he developed his idea for the Light because he thought Microsoft’s Magic Leap was far too bulky and expensive ($3,000). It was noticeably lighter and smaller than the Magic Leap.

It’s these two traits that attracted the partnership with LG UPlus.

We wanted to lower the barrier to the AR glass market with a realistic price and lightweight design” said Song Dae-won, executive vice president of LG UPlus’ device unit in a press release.

Consumers in South Korea can pick up a pair of nReal Light for 249,000 Korean won, or around $292, if they purchase a Samsung Galaxy Note 20 or LG Velvet through the carrier. This is a heavily subsidized price from the official $586 retail price.

The nReal Light is, essentially a pair of glasses with two 1080p screens attached to each spectacle, and together they pump out visuals that, when the glasses are worn properly, will be projected over real life field-of-view.

One key benefit of the nReal Light compared to other AR glasses is that the glasses can be plugged into a myriad of devices—including smartphones like the Galaxy Note 20 and LG Velvet.

For example, a user can plug the Light into a phone and scroll through Instagram as a digital overlay that “floats” over the real world, or watch YouTube videos. Software companies are free to build anything for the glasses and from my testing over a year ago, nReal demonstrated a Space Invader type game in which I had to move my head around to aim a crosshair to destroy incoming enemies.

The types of applications are limitless, and with South Korea a leader in 5G, there should be some very useful apps developed.
