These MicroLED Xiaomi Shades Could Revolutionize Smart Glasses Design

Although smart glasses used to be little more than an impossibly futuristic aspiration, these days, they’re edging ever closer toward mainstream application. Just last week Ray-Ban dropped its Facebook Stories sunglasses, and already Xiaomi has an answer that aims to replace your smartphone.

They’re called the Xiaomi Smart Glasses, and they’re designed to combine everyday looks with next-level tech. However, where the competition has traditionally employed bulky projectors and cumbersome panels, Xiaomi instead uses a tiny MicroLED module that’s no bigger than a grain of rice. When combined with the Smart Glasses’ optical waveguide technology, this means that a single lens can display information right before your very eyes. As such, they make for a far less obtrusive wearable that weighs just 51 grams. Nevertheless, because they come with an ARM processor, a 5MP camera, some beamforming microphones, and a set of speakers, they’re significantly more capable than anything else on the market. In addition to showing messages and notifications, the Smart Glasses can also provide turn-by-turn navigation, real-time text translation, and photo capture at the push of a touchpad. Though they’re only a concept, you can expect to see something similar soon.
