Chinese-based Smartphone maker, Xiaomi announces a smart concept wearable device – Xiaomi smart glasses, however, the company bills them as “an engineer’s look into an advanced future”. The Xiaomi smart glasses concept is smart in some notable ways.
The smartness of the wearable device involves display notifications, allowing you to make calls, thanks to the built-in dual beamforming mics and speakers, navigate, take photos, and can even translate audio into text in real-time, “right before your eyes” Xiaomi said.
Xiaomi smart glasses is the company’s first smart wearable device concept and it comes with a teleprompter function. It looks like everyday pair of glasses, but we can’t be very sure of that as it weighs 51g and only sounds great on paper.
The company said that the MicroLED display uses optical waveguide technology that refracts light at 180 degrees, and so it accurately transmits light beams to the human eye “through the microscopic grating structure of the optical waveguide lens”.
MicroLED optical waveguide technology can display messages and notifications, make calls, navigate, capture photos, and translate text. Xiaomi said that the MicroLEDs are used for backlighting, and the display chip measures only 2.4mm x 2.02mm, roughly the size of a grain of rice.
The Xiaomi smart glasses concept sports a 5-megapixels camera on the front for pictures, and the Smart Glasses can transcribe with translations in real-time. There is no extended explanation on the battery, touchpad, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth modules, and Android version.
Xiaomi smart glasses is powered by a quad-core ARM processor and features a XiaoAI assistant, which Xiaomi said is the “primary interaction method” with the glasses. Allowing only the most important notifications get through to you.
It doesn’t disturb you with every single notification your phone gets, you’ll see smart home alarms, urgent information from office apps, messages from important contacts, and other such things. Its a concept, and not yet a real device, and we don’t know when it’ll be.
