Xiaomi presents connected glasses that will never be released

Xiaomi is also embarking on the connected glasses race with a model that looks like something out of a movie in anticipation. On the other hand, it seems that the glasses of the Chinese manufacturer are still a distant technological fantasy that will never reach the hands of the general public.

It’s not every day that one of the world’s largest phone manufacturers prophesies the death of our smartphones. However, this is exactly what Xiaomi did. in his last video which features a prototype of connected glasses designed by the Chinese manufacturer.

The Xiaomi Smart Glasses add to the great trend of connected glasses that Google, Snapchat, Microsoft and more recently Facebook have already embarked on. But the promises made by the Chinese manufacturer go far beyond what has been made to date.

A waste of technology

In the heart of the glasses there would be a “0.13-inch microLED display smaller than a grain of rice” Who “thanks to reflection and scattering of optical waves“It would appear much larger in the lenses of the glasses. Even more impressive, the brightness of the base screen could reach, according to Xiaomi, 2 million nits. As a reminder, the best smartphones on the market today struggle to exceed 1000 nits.

In terms of functionality, Xiaomi’s glasses would show notifications, navigation routes and could even translate text on the fly thanks to a voice assistant. Of course, they could also take pictures. Xiaomi remains very vague about the technical details simply explaining that the glasses “relying on an engineering mind to create the point of view of the future“.

Too good to be true

If that sounds too good to be true, it is. For now, Xiaomi’s glasses are nothing more than a prototype intended to give a small glimpse into the future. All demos are done in the studio and the device is never seen in a “real life” situation. In addition, if the technologies sold by Xiaomi do not seem fanciful (remember that MicroLED technology is still overrated for the moment), no one has yet managed to integrate them so elegantly and efficiently into connected glasses. If Xiaomi had really succeeded, there is no doubt that the brand would communicate in a much more concrete way on the subject.

I like it A Xiaomi spokesperson confirmed to The Verge siteThese glasses weren’t designed to hit store shelves one day. We really don’t know if they really exist in Xiaomi labs. The aim of the project is simply to show that the company is very interested in connected glasses, augmented reality and the future of connected mobility. In short, like all the other big players in technology.
