Xiaomi is taking on Facebook in the wearables market by releasing its own Xiaomi smart glasses. The gadget will not only be able to take photographs, but it will also be able to show messages and notifications, make calls, provide navigation, and translate text in real time in front of your eyes. Xiaomi, like Facebook, is emphasizing the device’s lightness despite its functionality. However, at 51 grams, it is somewhat heavier than the social network’s Ray-Ban Stories. Furthermore, the glasses include an indication light that indicates when the 5-megapixel camera is in operation.
According to Xiaomi, their smart glasses will be more than simply a second screen for your phone. It is capable of doing many things on its own, such as picking the most critical alerts to display you, such as smart home alarms and messages from important contacts. The navigation function of the smartphone may show maps and directions in front of your eyes. It can also display the phone number of whoever is presently contacting your phone, and you may answer the call using the smart glasses’ built-in microphone and speakers.
Subtle obstacles in imaging and internal component layouts must be solved in order to mimic the shape of regular glasses. Xiaomi Smart Glasses use MicroLED imaging technology to reduce the amount of structural design space required, as well as the total weight of the gadget.
MicroLED is unquestionably the best option for elegantly integrating the image equipment within the frame. MicroLEDs, like OLEDs, have independently illuminated pixels; their emissive characteristic enables for brighter displays and deeper blacks. MicroLEDs, on the other hand, offer a greater pixel density and a longer lifespan while having a simpler structure. This enables a more compact display and easier screen integration.
Because these glasses will not be available to the general public and may not even exist, you should be skeptical of Xiaomi’s promises. However, the concept presentation, which comes just after Facebook’s announcement and just before Apple’s iPhone event, is a strong indication that Xiaomi wants to be considered a player in the AR sector.
