Xiaomi is taking on Facebook in the wearables market by releasing its 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, emphasizes 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 indicator light that indicates when the 5-megapixel camera is in operation.
Before the launch ceremony on September 15th, Xiaomi revealed an unusual device, or you might say the first in the sector. While everyone is anticipating the gadgets unveiled tomorrow, we are puzzled as to why Xiaomi has not included this product in the launch event. The brand has consistently supplied low-cost goods with high-quality features. This time, it has introduced the world’s first intelligent wearable goggles. The smart goggles appear precisely like ordinary sunglasses but contain a plethora of exciting functions.
MicroLED is a no-brainer for Xiaomi since it allows for a more compact display, better screen integration, higher pixel density, and a longer lifespan. Meanwhile, the monochromatic display allows the eye to comprehend digital material even in strong direct sunlight comfortably.
The goggles weigh 51g and are marketed as Xiaomi digital Glasses. The individual using the glasses may view notifications, make calls, and even see real-time images. Another fantastic feature is the ability to translate text. The user may also navigate the directions. The Xiaomi digital Glasses also have a teleprompter. The display chip on the glasses is only 2.4mm to 2.02mm in size. Micro-LEDs provide backlighting on display. The tiny pixels allow the display to fit within the frames of the glasses. It is a high-efficiency monochrome panel. The microLED display uses optical waveguide technology to alter the direction of light by up to 180 degrees, ensuring that the light beam reaches the human eye properly. The rough item put on the inner side of the Xiaomi digital Glasses unusually alters the path of light, allowing the light beam to bounce multiple times so that the eyes can view the entire image. The best part is that the intelligent electronic display requires a single lens, which simplifies the procedure.
Not a secondary smartphone (AN INDEPENDENT SMART WEARABLE, ON THE OTHER HAND)
Xiaomi Digital Glasses incorporates 497 components, including small sensors and communication modules, and works as a new intelligent terminal with autonomous operational capacity, rather than merely a “second screen” for your smartphone. In addition to fundamental notification, call display. So on, it can also perform tasks like navigation, photo capturing, teleprompter, and real-time text and photo translations on its own. In terms of usage, crucial interaction logic has also been developed to reduce disruptions at inconvenient times and to present critical information in real-time when necessary.
We must provide interaction logic that “does not disrupt normal use while displaying essential information on time.” Several vital scenarios, including “key notification,” “phone call,” “navigation,” and “photo translation,” were finally confirmed after many in-depth discussions, with Xiaomi AI Assistant serving as the primary interaction method. As a result, Xiaomi Smart Glasses can “display the most important information at the precise moment it is required.”
It is inappropriate to display all of your smartphone’s push notifications in front of your eyes. To avoid alarming users, Xiaomi Smart Glasses selects and pushes the most important messages, such as intelligent home alarms, urgent information from office apps, and messages from important contacts, among others. The most natural use scenario for smart glasses is “phone call,” and you will be able to see the other party’s number when they call you. Both parties can hear each other thanks to the built-in dual beamforming microphone and speaker.
The term “navigation” is extremely useful in driving and cycling scenarios. Xiaomi Smart Glasses can display real-time roads and maps in front of you, allowing you to keep your eyes on the road safely and conveniently.
To achieve this level of functionality, the glasses must include a quad-core ARM processor, battery, touchpad, Wi-Fi/Bluetooth modules, the Android operating system, and other features. “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic,” it was said. To create a future perspective, Xiaomi Digital Glasses employ an engineering mindset.
It is certainly not trivial. Xiaomi uses the technology “Optical Waveguide “To ensure that the light is refracted at 180 °. The lenses of the glasses then have a microscopic lattice structure on which the image is projected. Thanks to the reticle, the light emitted by the display are refracted uniquely correct towards the user’s eye. To ensure that the image is visible even in direct sunlight, an ultra-efficient monochrome display is capable, according to what was reported by Xiaomi, to reach a peak brightness of 2 million nits.
Like with most patents, there is no guarantee that the new patent will turn into a new product from the brand. Several patents never make it to final products, including both smartphones and other gadgets. However, it is nice to see Xiaomi coming up with an original take on the Smart Glasses idea.
Brands have made smart glasses before, and some, like Apple, are reportedly on their way to making their first such products. Even Facebook is making a pair of smart glasses. Experts say smart glasses will replace smartphones one day; however, there is no actual use case for such devices for now.
